Judy Reyes is trading in her scrubs for a maid’s outfit…
The 44-year-old Dominican American actress—best known for her role as nurse Carla Espinosa on Scrubs—has been cast as the fourth lead in the ABC pilot Devious Maids, from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
Based on the Mexican telenovela Ellas son… la alegría del hogar, the drama centers on four ambitious maids who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills while trying to make their own dreams come true.
Reyes will play Zoila, the senior maid at the Delacourt household whose intelligence is matched only by her humor. She works alongside her teenage daughter Valentina, who serves as the junior maid at mansion.
