Khalid Walker

Played By Kingsley Ben-Adir


Kingsley Ben-Adir stars in DEEP STATE as “Khalid Walker,” British, 30’s and The Section’s second-in-command. Walker is plain-talking, no nonsense, often grumpy and always cynical. White’s ‘junior partner’. Walker hates being kept in the dark but doesn’t possess the political nuance to outmaneuver White.
