Most of us may know actress, Emily Kinney, as the doe-eyed daughter of farmer Hershel on AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead. If you’re a dedicated fan, then you’ve watched little Beth (Kinney’s character) grow up and involuntarily steal your heart. As she transformed from a helpless teenager ready to give up on the life of a zombie apocalypse survivor to a moonshine drinking stud, you couldn’t help but warm to her newfound sass. But, the hearts of Beth fans everywhere were shattered when she was killed off late last season, the victim of an accidental bullet, as she tried to rescue her best friend Noah.
We will never again see her as Beth Greene, fighting off zombies and burning down houses, but Kinney has continued to blossom in her acting career, appearing in small roles on shows such as The Flash and Forever. However, if that didn’t satisfy your Kinney fix, not to fret.
She has reportedly landed a recurring role on the upcoming season of Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
Kinney will play the role of Nora, the child neighbor of Billy and Libby Masters. As she develops into a mature young woman, she volunteers to become a sex surrogate to aid in the Masters and Johnson’s research. She is definitely a long, long way from the farm.
Masters of Sex will return to Showtime on July 12, so if you’re a die-hard Emily Kinney fan, now is the time to catch up!
