Johanna Quintero is from Puerto Rico. Since she was a child, Johanna had an affinity for the performing arts. In 1998 she had her "big break" starring opposite Dennis Hopper in the feature film "The Apostate." After the movie was released she decided to relocate to Los Angeles and give her acting career a fair chance. Her goal so far has been to obtain success as an actor while keeping an open mind and an open heart throughout the process. For Johanna, acting is an intricate and beautiful craft and she is humbled by the experience every time she gets to play a character. "I have so much love for acting because it puts me in a place of gratitude and absolute joy," she adds.

Currently, Laila is a series regular on the new fall show "Hole in the Wall" as the Sexy Lifeguard. Laila's love of water and dexterity enabled her to become the youngest lifeguard in her community. The charismatic hazel-eyed actress continues community outreach by volunteering her celebrity to local city parks; her focus is to educate and eliminate the fear of water in urban communities. As the gorgeous comedian Ana Marie on 'Zane's Sex Chronicles', Laila is humorous, sexually unabashed and real.

With a potent combination of talent, beauty and wisdom beyond her years, Maya Delese Gilbert has taken Hollywood by storm in just a few short years. Only five months after her arrival in Los Angeles, she booked the national show "I Wanna Be a Soap Star" after beating out several thousand hopefuls for the spot (in her first real Hollywood audition, no less!). After her brief stint in the world of reality TV, she made several soap opera appearances before successfully making the difficult transition to mainstream success. In less than four years, she has starred in numerous independent films, made several television appearances and is in talks for both big and small screen projects through the next few years. Last year alone, she completed three projects, which are now in post-production: the short film "Mary Mary" and two features, "The Broken Hearts Club" and "The Welcoming." She has worked with some of the entertainment industry's biggest names, including Spike Lee, Mariah Carey, and rappers Nelly and Snoop Dogg.
