Brianna Brown as Taylor Stappord
Brianna Brown hails from Minnesota and made her first on-screen appearance in 1999 in the pilot episode of NBC’s "Freaks and Geeks." Brown has graced the silver screen in a variety of roles, including "The Animal" (2001, starring Rob Schneider), "Hollywood Homicide" (2003, starring Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett) and Sam Raimi’s Academy Award®-winning "Spider-Man 2." On the small screen, she has guest-starred and recurred on many popular shows such as CBS’ "CSI," "CSI: New York," "CSI: Miami," "Without a Trace" and "Shark," The WB’s sci-fi series "Smallville," Showtime’s "Homeland," NBC’s "Joey," as well as the Emmy®-winning "Entourage" on HBO and daytime’s "General Hospital."

A small town girl from the Midwest, Taylor followed her dreams to Los Angeles and married Michael Stappord, one of Los Angeles’ most prominent lawyers. With a kinetic social life, an opulent home to maintain, and a bitter rivalry with Michael’s ex-wife, Taylor could use a shoulder to lean on. And when Marisol is hired to work for the Stappord’s, Taylor is surprised to find not only a competent maid, but also a trusted friend.
