Exclusive: Charlie's Angels Casts First Angel

Meet Charlie’s first new angel.

I hear that General Hospital cast member Annie Ilonzeh has landed one of the three leads in ABC’s Charlie’s Angels pilot. The project, from Sony Pictures TV and Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films, is a Miami-set modern take on the Angels, centering on a new trio of young and sexy private eyes – Kate, Abby and Marisa – working for a wealthy mystery man.

Ilonzeh will play Kate, a very smart and very athletic ex-cop and a master of martial arts. She is the most serious of our three Angels, but also knows how to let her hair down and have a great time.

Ilonzeh, best known for her current role as GH‘s Maya Ward, recently did arcs on HBO’s Entourage and The CW’s Melrose Place. Her film credits include Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
