Kim’s recent venture sees her starring as a regular on AMC’s post-apocalyptic zombie series titled Fear The Walking Dead, where she shares screen spaces with the famous actor, Colman Domingo.
In 2018, she starred in the movie Lizzie -- an American thriller based on a true story of Lizzie Borden, who was accused and acquitted of the murders of her father and step-father. In addition to these, she’s been hosting live tv aftershow titled Talking Dead since 2016.
Kim Dickens' Career: From Deadwood To Gone Girl
Kim was born on June 18, 1965, in Huntsville, Alabama to a father, Justin Dickens and a mother, Pam Howell. Her family’s only previous stint in show-biz was her father, who was a country singer.
The Fear the Walking Dead star received her high school degree from Lee High School in Huntsville. She then moved to Nashville, Tennessee - leaving her family behind - to pursue her higher studies. After graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she decided to move to Los Angeles.
The Huntsville native made her on-screen debut playing Vincent Gallo’s love interest in Palookaville in 1995. She then went on to do television films Voice from the Grave and Two Mothers for Zachary in the subsequent years that followed. Her first role as a lead actress in 1997 Truth or Consequence is forgettable as it showcased a weak showing at the box office.
The Vanderbilt bounced back with the release of Zero Effect and Mercury Rising a year later. In the years that followed she has acted in over 18 movies; Red(2008), The Blind Side(2009) and Gone Girl(2014) being considered her biggest.
At the turn of the century, her focus shifted towards television as she featured on HBO's Western drama Deadwood(2004-2006), playing Joanie Stubbs, the lesbian madam. She also made regular guest appearances on Lost and Friday Night Lights.
Her portrayal of the character Madison Clark in Fear the Walking Dead has been the most revered acting gig of her illustrious career.
Besides these, Kim has made various TV appearances -- Big Apple(2001), Out of Order(2003), 12 Miles of Bad Road(2008) and Treme(2010-2013) to name a few.
Kim Stars In New Drama Pilot After Leaving Fear The Walking Dead
It was announced on 23 August 2018 that Kim would be headlining new Showtime pilot, Queen Fur after her exit from The Walking Dead spinoff, Fear The Walking Dead.
The hourlong drama pilot is seeing Kim play a former local beauty queen from Florida and mother to an unapologetic high school dropout, finding her womanhood.
Kim's departure from AMC's Fear The Walking Dead came as a shocker as no one was expecting her strong and leading character to be killed off and though she was a bit disappointed over that, Kim shared her gratitude and honor to play such a unique role.
Queen Fur's production is set in a town in Central Florida where beauty pageants, Cuban revolutionaries, gun culture, and Southern hospitality collide and co-exist. Kim is certainly ready for her new project, that is written and produced by Eileen Myers, the pilot is directed by Sian Heder.
Onscreen Lesbian Role On Deadwood
Kim's mesmerizing portrayal of a lesbian character in Deadwood not only grew her status as a phenomenal actress but also made people question to her sexuality. Her friendship with Jill Sobule only added fuel to a rumor that was now spreading like wildfire.
However, all the rumors came crashing down as the identity of her husband came to the fore.
Married Entrepreneur Husband Ken Post Divorce

An artist's on-screen persona varies from their real-life mannerisms. Unless people come to terms with this axiom, wrongful assumptions of artists' sexuality will not die down; it will only worsen.
