Meet the New Characters for Season Two of Power
Carmela Zumbado starred in seven episodes of the latest season of ratings king Chicago P.D., playing “Anna Avalos.” The first-generation American actress of Cuban and Colombian descent will join Power Book IV: Force in the role of Mireya Garcia, according to Variety. Mireya is smart, direct with a great sense of humor. She’s strong-willed, guarded, and not afraid to call you on your bad behavior. She’s also the younger sister of the most dangerous Mexican drug dealer in the city.
Stacey Hyman is a regular on Showtime series The Chi, playing high school counselor “Dre.” The Philadelphia native will assume the role of US Attorney Stacy Marks in Force. Marks is from Chicago’s South Side and first worked as a public defender before earning her way into the U.S. Attorney’s Office. She’s an independent self-starter who’s young, hungry, and ready to make a name for herself.
Ramirez will play Miguel Garcia, Variety has confirmed. Miguel is a mean, violent, and domineering alpha male. He’s never been in a long-term relationship because he lives to make money but will do anything to protect the ones he loves.
Walker will play Shanti “Showstopper” Page. Shanti is a prized ex-professional boxer that now runs her own gym. She is fearless and ambitious, a dangerous combination. Walker is represented by Gray Talent Group.
