Last week it was announced that ABC had plans to produce a remake of the popular television series “Charlies Angels.” Before we could adjust to the idea, they’ve already started casting the main characters. The first actress to land a slot is Annie Ilonzeh. One Angel down, and two more to go. Who will join her?
Deadline reports that Ilonzeh has been cast as Kate, “a very smart and very athletic ex-cop and a master of martial arts. She is the most serious of our 3 Angels but also knows how to let her hair down and have a great time.” She’ll be joined by two other detectives named Abby and Marisa. The new show will be set against the Miami backdrop so one can imagine the wardrobe these women will sport each week.
For those of you who watch soap operas, Ilonzeh’s face may look familiar. She currently stars as Maya Ward on ABC’s “General Hospital.” Her character on that show is a strong willed medical intern, who’s fallen in love with an Australian bad boy. Since this is only the pilot, we’re not sure if she’s leaving the daytime drama completely.
What do you think of the first new Angel? Who else should they cast?
