There's Some Black People Coming Over For Dinner on General Hospital



TV Guide Magazine is reporting actress Annie Ilonzeh has landed the role of Maya Ward on General Hospital. Maya will make her Port Charles debut on March 31. According to the article, Maya will be romantically involved with a Spencer  (Think the one with the funny accent!). No word yet on when little sister Zoe, who is rumored to be slated for Michael (Drew Garrett), will make her way to town.

WOO HOO.  I think this is great news.  More Q's, added diversity, and a love interest for Ethan.  Sounds good to me.

Wow I was getting worried that TPTB changed their minds.  She is stunning, let's hope that the casting dept continues their successful  track record.  Poor Michael the boy is never gonna get any

First off, read the title and started laughing my butt off. God bless Designing Women.

Second, she's very pretty. I agree with the above poster in that they hopefully actually use her in a storyline that's worth something. I'll even go as far as to add "a storyline NOT involving the freaking mob and Sonny "I Can Do No Wrong Even When I Shoot My Own Son and Blame It On The Fact That He's A Cap" Corthinos. I know at some point it's gonna cross paths but a girl can dream right?

How about her as a love interest for Lucky?  If she's in medical school, she's in her mid 20s.  Ethan is supposed to be 19/20. 

Too bad GH couldn't create a role for Victoria Rowell as a Ward.  I'd love to see her fight with Tracy for control of ELQ!

Tongue Glad you got the reference! I was just about to say, if the PC police took offense, blame ME, not Jillian, I changed her headline. LOL

Her and Ethan, Naw, LOL.  But I can't wait because GH has been lacking in the diversity department around forever.

She"s pretty. PC needs the Wards around. Wait, wouldn't Zoe and Michael be related. I'm not sure who these Wards would be related to, they are Edward's granddaughter"s or great granddaughter's? I forget.

I think she is there for Lucky, not Ethan, Ether way it should be good.

She is pretty. I hope she can act but I trust the GH casting dept which is the best in the business.

I want her with Johnny, they would be hot together.

OK I know that Maya is Justus' daughter but who is her mother ? I assume Zoe ain't Justus' since that would make her michael's cousin right ?

I am VERY excited to finally see some color on GH again. She is pretty... I just hope she can act!
... & I am not sure about Ethan.  I am going to need her to be paired with someone I actually care about, like Lucky or Johnny.

I'm hoping Sonny has a bi-racial son somewhere in the world and he comes and snatches her up...Hopefully she will be NOTHING like Lily Winters! As a black man I have no problem with her dating out of her race, just don't make her Lily plz GH or I will never watch this show again, no matter who Sonny & Jason are Mobbing On!

Great to see some ethnic diversity in Port Charles.

Hate the title of this article though. I didn't watch Designing Women (I was a Golden Girls Queen) so I didn't get the wink.

BLACK PEOPLE!!! OMGoodness, I get to turn on GH and see someone who actually looks like someone in my family

Now I keep reading all these rumors. I originally read Lucky would be running around her than I read (please let it be true) she was going to hook up with Johnny. That she was going to help Johnny when he gets hurt.  Johnny has to get away from Booblivia, get him with the sista.

Also Maya isn't Justus' daughter.  Maya is suppose to be Justus' sister's daughter.  Zoe is her half sister.  Zoe is her father's daughter by another woman.  Zoe isn't related to the actually Ward/Quatermaine family. According to what Edward said when he was talking about the Wards.

It's just like when Keisha came. She was the Ward's cousin but she wasn't related to the Ward/Quatermaine side.

I wrote this on another board but pairing someone with JJ's Lucky isn't easy since he looks like he is 12 (and I LOVE JJ)

I'm still hoping that maybe initially she will be testing the waters with Ethan and then move on to Johnny since I believe Ethan and Kristina will be the go to pairing for Ethan.

Oh, goody, more Qs for the next serial killer to murder!  And they're young women, so it'll be extra-graphic.  (I wish I wasn't being more facetious than I am.)

She looks like the kind of girl who would slap Lucky if he starts with the crying.

Ok...I'm very excited to hear this. I love GH but they are seriously lacking when it comes to people of color. (Lainey, Kelly, anyone?)

WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!

First, GH is getting a new opening and now we are going to have black people on the show. Hell has frozen over.

She is very pretty, and I agree hopefully she can act. Let's hope they actually use them. But I am not worried GH has knocked it out of the park lately in their casting.

LOL at the headline for this post. Love the Designing Women reference!

Now let's hope the writers actually USE the new Ward girls.

 She's beautiful, but we'll see. She's black and a Quartermaine. That doesn't fair well in PC.

Ethan should be paired up with Kristina once Keifer goes away.

Give this beautiful woman Lucky. He deserves some fun in his life.
