Masters of Sex Adds Walking Dead's Emily Kinney in Spicy Season 3 Role

Emily Kinney Masters Of Sex

Emily Kinney‘s newest co-stars couldn’t be any less zombified.

The former Walking Dead star will recur in the upcoming third season of Showtime’s Masters of Sex, the network announced Monday. In addition to being Bill and Libby Masters’ former neighbor, Kinney’s Nora will also volunteer to serve as a “sex surrogate” in Masters and Johnson’s ongoing research.

Masters of Sex‘s third season — which features more sexual tension than ever between Michael Sheen, Lizzy Caplan and Caitlin Fitzgerald — premieres Sunday, July 12 at 10/9c.

In addition to The Walking Dead, Kinney’s recent TV credits include roles on The Flash, Forever and The Knick.

    Just goes to show ya, for women looks matter far more than talent in getting TV roles.

  2. LK says:

    Is she trying to change her image here? I wonder if she’ll do a nude scene.

  3. Big Mike says:

    Something always confuses me about the timing of these stories. Is this insinuating that she was JUST cast for this role, when the season premiere is less than a week away? Shouldn’t most of this be in the can by now?

    • Braeden says:

      I’m assuming they release it because it’s in the middle of the season, at least that’s what other shows do. Or she’s in it at the start and they released it to gain more attention before the Premiere

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        When I interview cable actors at launch of season, they’re often only 6 to 7 episodes into filming.

  4. Cat says:

    Awesome! Can’t wait to see her in this new role.

  5. Another women selling her soul and pissing away her career because she thinks showing her tits will be be seen as ‘artsy’ or ‘brave’. Its worked out so well for Daddario after true detective and about a hundred promising ‘actresses’ from Game of thrones. And women say they are objectified; they do it to themselves.

      What an edgy and informed comment! Or not, really.

      Rose McIver had several topless scenes during season 2 of Masters of Sex and is headlining iZombie on the WB. Getting naked on Masters of Sex didn’t hurt Allison Janney’s career. And really the addict she plays on Mom seems like a bigger potential career killer than getting naked on MoS.

      Getting naked on GoT didn’t stop Emilia Clarke from landing a lead role in Terminator 5. And really most of the naked people on GoT, who aren’t already big stars with many major credits, are porn actresses who are using the role on GoT to move more of their porn product.

      And with post True Detective roles in FX’s Married, Fox’s New Girl, Fox’s Last Man On Earth and one of the leads in surprise summer blockbuster San Andreas, with more roles coming up, I don’t think Alexandra Daddario is doing bad at all.

      Maybe the problem is you.

    When are they going to start shaving off most of Sheen’s hair, so that he looks like the real Masters, who suffered from male pattern baldness?

    • tanita says:

      Hopefully never. He doesn’t need to look like the real Masters to be Bill Masters. This isn’t a straight biopic. It doesn’t diminish his performance that he has hair. He is still the least classically attractive guy Virginia has dated/slept with (that includes josh charls’s character in season 3) so that is historical canon.

      • hud says:

        No doubt she will be accorded all the respect she deserves. Such a tasteless program. For what reason? We have all seen Caplan, no big deal. No pun intented.

    I bet a friend $100 that she would get nude on TV within a year of dying off on the Walking Dead. Guess I’ll be collecting real soon. Actresses like her who don’t have a lot of talent eventually resort to nudity. I doubt it’ll help her career.
