We're only 4 episodes into the latest season of The Good Fight but Charmaine Bingwa is already emerging as a fan favourite. The actress plays Carmen Moyo, a lawyer fresh out of school who joins Reddick Lockhart & Associates (The main subject of the series). She's not afraid to bend the rules and she couldn't care less if people liked her. In an interview with TV Insider Bingwa described Carmen as having a mysterious and enigmatic air to her.


We were introduced to Carmen on the second episode of season 5 and in the three episodes she's featured in so far Charmaine plays the role brilliantly. Having said goodbye to Delroy Lindo and Cush Jumbo who played Adrian Boseman and Lucca Quinn respectively on the show, people thought it was going to go downhill for The Good Fight but Charmaine character Carmen has breathed new life into the show.
