'Star Trek: Discovery' Waited to Begin Production Until Sonequa Martin-Green Was Available!

The upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery had a bunch of delays and the producers just revealed that one of them was waiting for star Sonequa Martin-Green to become available!

The 32-year-old actress was committed to The Walking Dead and AMC wouldn’t let her join another series until her death on that show was made public.

Sonequa opened up about her gratitude for being on the show while joining cast members Jason Isaacs, James Frain, and Mary Chieffo, as well as executive producers like Alex Kurtzman at the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour on Tuesday (August 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“The honor is mine. The pleasure is mine. I feel that we are all running over—our cups are running over with gratitude and excitement,” Sonequa said about being the first minority female to be a lead on a Star Trek show (via E! News). “We’re bursting at the seams from the weight of it and the breadth of it. We just—we couldn’t be more thrilled to share this journey with you because we understand its significance. We know we’re telling a story we believe in. Everybody is so passionate…This is an epicly grand, yet microscopically tuned, deeply emotional story. We don’t take it for granted. We don’t take it lightly. I certainly don’t. I feel like—it’s a dream to be able to be a part of history. It’s a dream. So, thank you.”

FYI: Sonequa is wearing a Ted Baker dress.

The 32-year-old actress, best known for her work on The Walking Dead, is the first black female lead in Star Trek history.

Sonequa was joined on the cover by her co-stars Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, and Mary Wiseman.

Showrunner Bryan Fuller opened up about the diverse casting for the new series.

“I couldn’t stop thinking about how many black people were inspired by seeing Nichelle Nichols on the bridge of the ship,” he said. “I couldn’t stop thinking about how many Asian people were inspired by seeing George Takei and feeling that gave them hope for their place in the future. I wanted to be part of that representation for a new era.”
