In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sonequa Martin-Green said that she would be interested in coming back to The Walking Dead for the upcoming anthology series. Her character Sasha was killed off back in season seven. Here are highlights:

On if she’d come back for Tales From the Walking Dead: “I’d love it. I’d loooooove it. I love Sasha. I love The Walking Dead. That was my family before this family. What a blessing, by the way, that I’ve been able to be in two situations back to back that were so familiar that have such reach. I would love to. That would be so much fun.”

On telling Sasha’s origin story: “It would be interesting. I was always interested in backstory. Of course, I am as an actor with every character that I play. But as the years went on as Sasha, I was finding so much joy in developing so much backstory that no one would ever know. That’s one of the great things about being an actor in TV, is that you get to build so much life over the years and over the seasons.”

On deciding her pre-apocalypse job: “I remember when I decided that I was a firefighter and then built all those memories for myself. But then that started to become part of the conversation. And it was nice. It was nice to be able to create in the privacy of your own home in your own little bubble and then have that become a part of the public conversation. That was really cool to see. So, yeah, that would be great.”
