Well now, since some people have caught on who plays the newest space badass lady (@ashermajestywishes@spacemonkeyg78 i’m looking at you! ;P) I thought I’d make this little compilation. Just for us, The Discourse Club, to have that little giddy feeling I simply like to call ‘In your face!’.
Sonequa Martin-Green. Then: Tamara, villain. 7 total episodes, killed off in a following season premier. Now: Lead role and the de-facto face of the newest Star Trek series.
Sinqua Walls. Then: Sir Lancelot. 6 total episodes. Physically replaced with a white woman on screen, presumed dead, Put on a Bus later on. Now: One of the leads in a brand-new series “The Breaks” based on a critically acclaimed movie of the same name.
Meghan Ory. Then: Put on a bus after S2, her character was used for the Token LGBT ‘representation’ in the Very Special Episode. Now: Main Lead in her own series on Hallmark “Chesapeake Shores”.
Rose McIver. Then: Tinker Bell. 9 episodes. Used mainly as a plot device to create and further 0Q in the narrative. Now: Lead in her own series “iZombie”, that is quite well received by critics and audiences alike, despite being on CW.
So here we are. Seems like many of those who shook off the chains are finding much better alternatives. What would you know.
Of course, I haven’t included actors who were already big names and whose careers wouldn’t be affected by 0uat regardless. For the likes of Giancarlo Esposito, Joaquim de Almeida or Tzi Ma – 0uat was no more than a blip on the radar.
PS. The Unhappy Mentions.
Elliot Knight is now playing a main role in a new series, too. However, it’s on CW and has all the appearance of making a comedy out of being a cancer patient / survivor. Sadly, not a step up for him in my opinion.
There is no info on Christie Laing getting any exiting roles at all. :(
Alexandra Metz’s (The Enchanted Forest Rapunzel) career is sadly unchanged. Guest appearances and TV movies.
I’ve got a mental image of the way you used to look at me, baby let’s push our limits. I’ve got a west coat heart and an east coast mentality, baby let’s push our limits. I’ve got a racing mind and enough gas to get to Tennessee.
I might not make it to the PS Elliot and TTF show next week. That would totally suck. I don’t really want to go all the way there alone though and money is kind of tight right now. Eek. I really want to go though.
the same hair color, the same tattoos you’ve got unlimited resources or nothing to lose you make a choice and you were always afraid of dying and i know i’ve been distant and i’ve filled you with doubt but i’ve been heartbroken and i figured out we all make a choice and i’ve never been afraid of dying
