Annie Ilonzeh

After years of playing secondary roles on television shows and in films, Annie Ilonzeh finally took her place among the stars as one of the leads on "Charlie's Angels" (ABC, 2011), a remake of the classic cop drama in the 1970s. The talented actress launched her career playing mostly "eye candy" roles on shows like "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS, 2005-14) and "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-2011), and in the action-fantasy film "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" (2010). Ilonzeh then scored a regular part on the long-running daytime soap "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ), as a medical intern who falls for the charm of a flirtatious and risk-taking bad boy. While still enjoying her soap run, Ilonzeh went on to nab one of the most iconic female roles on television, as a former hard-nosed cop who turns her life around and becomes a crime-fighting siren, on the remake of "Charlie's Angels." Although the show was short-lived, it successfully launched her as a known commodity and an actress with beauty and talent to spare.
