‘Walking Dead’ Star Andrew Lincoln Wants ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Cameo
The Walking Dead already sent one of its heroes into space, so why not a second? Following Sonequa Martin-Green’s confirmed Star Trek: Discovery role, Dead head Andrew Lincoln now says he wants to join her in Starfleet, even if it means under layers of alien makeup.
Keeping in mind spoilers from The Walking Dead Season 7 finale, Lincoln told Variety that he’d want to follow Martin-Green to her new job, given how much they’d miss her among the zombie thriller’s cast. Lincoln even lightly hinted at a Star Trek cameo, but might have been teasing:
“She’s an incredible personality with incredible grace and strength and tenacity,” Lincoln told Variety. “She’s a very impressive woman. She will be leading that starship with the same class and fortitude. That is going to be one happy spaceship. I’d love to beam myself up at some point in some kind of Greg Nicotero special effects makeup.” When pressed if he would actually don some alien makeup and appear on the show, Lincoln said with a laugh, “No spoilers.”
Of course, there’s every chance of seeing Martin-Green again when The Walking Dead returns for Season 8, as Sunday’s finale saw fit to resurrect Michael Cudlitz’s Abraham in flashback. Martin isn’t the only star who left The Walking Dead for a network gig, so should we expect to see Lincoln demanding a 24: Legacy role next?
Check out how they pulled off Martin-Green’s departure below, and stay tuned for more on The Walking Dead and Star Trek.
