When this show started, for a while there, I couldn’t stand Maya Wilkes. She was always saying, “Oh HELL no!” and had too much of a paranoid mindset and bad attitude. But the more I watched her, the more interesting she became (and funny!), especially when she was trying to repair her relationship with Darnell. After the show ended, she also went in and out of the public eye. She did one episode of “CSI” and “The Exes,” and acquired some more film roles for her resume: “The Great Divide,” “The Inheritance,” and she just completed “The Mudman” and “A Beautiful Soul.” Brooks also became a mother. She has a daughter named Dakota with the very fine actor D.B. Woodside.
