Starz has revealed the first look at the character Bilquis from their upcoming series American Gods, based on the bestselling novel by Neil Gaiman.
Check out the photo here below of Bilquis, played by Yetide Badaki, in what is sure to be an unforgettable scene in the television show.
Co-showrunner Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) had said that the character, who is one of the “Old Gods” who had very few pages devoted to her in the book, would be getting an expanded role in the TV series and would be “a major player in this world.”
