Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Ruth Negga has been cast as the female lead on the upcoming AMC’s Preacher series.
Ruth is set to play the female lead role of Tulip, a main character from the Vertigo comic series, which is also the ex-girlfriend of Preacher’s protagonist: Jesse Custer.
According to Deadline’s report, the character is described as “a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to construct helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.”
Preacher is produced by Sony TV and AMC Studios, developed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for television with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) as showrunner.
Preacher is based on the fan-favorite Vertigo imprint’s series of the same name.
