Golden Brooks Joins ‘The Darkest Minds’ Cast
Actress Golden Brooks is set to join Amandla Stenberg in the upcoming Fox thriller The Darkest Minds. Based on the trilogy of young adult novels by Alexandra Bracken, the film follows a group of teens who develop supernatural abilities after a pandemic wipes out most of the planet’s adult population. Brooks will reportedly play Molly Daly, the mother of Amandla’s character, Ruby.
For those of you out of the loop, Golden is best known for her role as Maya Wilkes on the former UPN comedy Girlfriends. Since the series wrapped up its record breaking run in 2008, Golden has kept busy appearing in several hit shows, including Hart of Dixie, CSI: Miami and most recently, Blunt Talk on Starz.
In addition to her career on the big and small screen, Brooks also has her own home décor line called The Golden Collection. The actress launched her new venture last fall and recently expanded it to include bedding and scented candles.
