She’s Gotta Have It actress Margot Bingham is joining Season 11 of AMC’s The Walking Dead.
In The Walking Dead, Bingham previously played Stephanie, a character that she did the voiceover for in Season 10 episodes “Bonds” and “Morning Star.” Stephanie, a survivor of the zombie outbreaks in Charleston, West Virginia, connects via radio with Josh McDermitt’s Eugene Porter, who she crushes on.
AMC hasn’t commented on who Bingham will play, but she’ll probably be returning as Stephanie.
When The Walking Dead ended its season before airing the planned finale, Eugene Porter was on his way to meet a mystery woman with Ezekial, Yumiko, and Princess. If Stephanie is the same character as in the comics for which the series is based on, she’ll be the introduction to the Commonwealth, the mega-community that’s the focus of the Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel series.
Bingham’s other TV roles include Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It, New Amsterdam, One Dollar, and Boardwalk Empire. Her film credits include Tigertail, Barbershop: The Next Cut, and Saturday Church.
