The unshakeable Annie Ngozi Ilonzeh found small-screen success in a variety of different shows after her unceremonious departure from the Angels franchise. The show had no impact on her prospects, and the actress landed recurring and leading roles in shows such as “Switched at Birth”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “Empire.”
Ilonzeh set tongues wagging when she was spotted accompanying basketball legend Shaquille O’ Neal to an intimate dinner in Los Angeles. While Ilonzeh offered no definitive reply as to the nature of the mystery date, O’ Neal insisted it was a business meeting.
Minka Kelly Now
The breakthrough success that "Friday Night Lights" brought Minka Kelly dimmed slightly after the failure of "Charlie’s Angels." The actress found marginal success in the following years and found herself in bit parts and more minor roles. This was all to change, though, when in 2017, she bagged the part of Dawn Granger in the science-fiction television series "Titans."
The fantasy show proved to be wildly popular, and the producers, recognizing Kelly’s role in contributing to the success, earned her a permanent spot in the following season. Kelly has been romantically linked to South African-born comedian Trevor Noah.
Annie Ngozi Ilonzeh Then
Texas-born actress Annie Ngozi Ilonzeh brought Charlie’s Angel Kate Prince to life in the doomed reboot of the franchise in 2011. The backstory of the character stayed true to the usual troubled background of the recruited Angels, this instance with Ilonzeh’s Angel initially being a corrupt-cop-turned-spy.
Ilonzeh would suffer the same fate as the rest of the cast when the network canned the show before the fifth episode was aired, citing abysmal ratings. Ilonzeh stayed mum on the abrupt termination of the show and quietly moved on with her career.
Rachel Taylor Then
Australian actress Rachel Taylor blasted onto American small screens as Abby Sampson in the 2011 rehash of "Charlie’s Angels". The character was billed as a 'Park Avenue princess turned thief' who would go on to be recruited by the mysterious Charlie.
The actress had made a dent in the Hollywood landscape before starring in "Charlie’s Angels", having shared the screen with Shia LaBeouf in the first Transformers movie. In an interview, Taylor stated that she predicted the demise of the ill-fated television show. She believes the lackluster reception was a clear indicator of its ruin.
Rachel Taylor Now
Rachel Taylor had her hand in a few small productions since leaving the "Charlie’s Angels" show. The role in which she is most recognized remains that of doctor Lucy Fields in the medical drama "Grey’s Anatomy". The actress would hold a recurring role in eight episodes and became one of the show’s most endeared characters.
She went on to star in the Australian film, "Ladies in Black." Taylor followed this up with a starring role alongside Forest Whitaker in "Finding Steve McQueen", an old-fashioned heist movie. The movie tanked, earning a paltry seventy dollars in the United States.
