Sorry, I'm sorry Erik...
~ Linda's last words before being shot by Erik Killmonger.

Linda Johnson is a supporting antagonist in the 2018 Marvel film Black Panther. She is a former black-ops operative turned criminal who is the lover of Erik Killmonger until he betrayed and killed her.

Named Tilda Johnson in the original cut of the film, she was portrayed by Nabiyah Be.

History

As part of Ulysses Klaue's plan to steal vibranium from a museum in Great Britain, Linda disguised herself as a barista named Bonnie to enter the museum and poison the curator who is then having a meeting with Killmonger, allowing her companions Klaue and Linbani to enter the museum effortlessly in their disguise as paramedics. After they have successfully stolen the vibranium artifact, the group escapes in the ambulance car. When Killmonger enters the van, he and Linda kiss each other passionately.

After Klaue has been captured while trying to sell the vibranium in South Korea, Killmonger initiates a successful plan to free Klaue from custody by having both Linda and Linbani hack the cameras of the building that Klaue was being held in and placing explosive charges outside the wall of the interrogation room. After the group has freed Klaue, they make their way to an old junkyard, where a plane is waiting for them. Killmonger suddenly reveals that their destination is going to be Wakanda, causing confusion with Klaue and Limbani. He then draws a pistol and shoots Limbani, killing him. Klaue tries to save himself by holding Linda hostage, much to her distraught. However, he has greatly overestimated Killmonger's love for Linda and despite Killmonger promising her that everything will be okay, he ruthlessly guns her down. Killmonger then guns down Klaue as well, as he intends to use the latter's corpse to gain entry to Wakanda as part of his true plan to overthrow the Wakandan kingdom in revenge for his father's death.
