Break Out Role:  As a television star I think The Good Wife would be her break out role as her film career has yet to truly take off yet.

2010 Onwards: Sonequa got supporting roles in three major television shows at the start of this decade with appearance in ‘The Good Wife’, ‘Once Upon a Time’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ all three shows are long running and she appeared in multiply episodes.  The only released film she starred in was ‘Shockwave Darkside’.

My Favourite Role: Sasha Williams – The Walking Dead – Sasha is sister of Tyreese who meets up with our hero Rick while they group are still at the prisoner. She joins the fight against the Governor, she ends up with Bob and Maggie after the attack on the prisoner, while everyone is searching for loved ones while still trying to survivor. Sasha has proven herself good in combat and while only a supporting character she could become much more important in the future.
