Distinguished actor Patrick Stewart, best known for “Star Trek”, took on the role of private investigator John Bosley in the Elizabeth Banks-driven “Charlie’s Angels” 2019 remake. Stewart’s casting as John Bosley, the mediator between the crimefighting heroines and spy boss Charlie himself, was unique in that he played one of two Bosleys in the film, with the other being Elizabeth Banks.
Stewart’s Bosley is described as the patriarch of the secretive organization. This leads some more conspiracy-minded fans to deduce that John Bosley was instrumental in founding Charlie’s Angels.
Rachel Taylor Then
Australian actress Rachel Taylor blasted onto American small screens as Abby Sampson in the 2011 rehash of "Charlie’s Angels". The character was billed as a 'Park Avenue princess turned thief' who would go on to be recruited by the mysterious Charlie.
The actress had made a dent in the Hollywood landscape before starring in "Charlie’s Angels", having shared the screen with Shia LaBeouf in the first Transformers movie. In an interview, Taylor stated that she predicted the demise of the ill-fated television show. She believes the lackluster reception was a clear indicator of its ruin.
Rachel Taylor Now
Rachel Taylor had her hand in a few small productions since leaving the "Charlie’s Angels" show. The role in which she is most recognized remains that of doctor Lucy Fields in the medical drama "Grey’s Anatomy". The actress would hold a recurring role in eight episodes and became one of the show’s most endeared characters.
She went on to star in the Australian film, "Ladies in Black." Taylor followed this up with a starring role alongside Forest Whitaker in "Finding Steve McQueen", an old-fashioned heist movie. The movie tanked, earning a paltry seventy dollars in the United States.
Patrick Stewart Now
Stewart, a true luminary of the screen and stage, continues to add a legacy to his name. The Shakespearean actor fulfills the mammoth task of acting on stage, on screen, and even doing voice acting throughout the year. 2022 saw Stewart reprise his decades-long role as titular character Professor X in the "X-Men" franchise.
The thrice-married actor wedded his third wife under the auspices of fellow English actor Ian McKellen. Never one to rest on his laurels, Stewart is heavily involved in numerous social causes and is an outspoken supporter of animal and human rights, and is a spokesperson for several organizations.
Djimon Hounsou Then
Beninese actor Djimon Hounsou joined the Bosley ranks in the 2019 big-screen version of "Charlie’s Angels." The 2019 reboot would see director Elizabeth Banks write in several Bosley characters, and Hounsou took on the role of Edgar Bosley, a Paris-based private investigator and mentor to Angel Jane Kano, played by Ella Balinska.
Hounsou steps in as the third Bosley of the film, next to Elizabeth Banks and Patrick Stewart. Hounsou’s Bosley remained noble to the Angels, and he would meet his fate with villain Hodak, the enemy of his protegee Jane Kano.
