Life and Career
Maile grew up familiar with the entertainment industry thanks to her parents’ careers. She aspired to become like her father, and began auditioning for acting roles at a young age. One of her first projects was the soap opera entitled “The Bold and the Beautiful”, a soap opera which has been running since the late-1980s, and follows the story of a family living in Los Angeles.
They own a fashion house business and must manage their professional and personal lives. The show is the youngest airing soap in the US and is a sister show to “The Young and the Restless”. It consistently holds second place in the Nielsen Ratings.
Following that appearance, she took on other projects, including making an appearance in “Entertainment Tonight”, which airs on CBS and is a television newsmagazine program.
They often air feature stories focused on the entertainment industry, including coverage of upcoming releases, and interviews of known personalities including actors. One of the latest projects she’s worked on is entitled “It Has Begun: Bananapocalypse” which aired on YouTube.
The video is intended to be an introduction to a YouTube channel called You Offend ME, You Offend My FAMILY or YOMYOMF.
Father – Wayne Brady
Wayne didn’t initially intend on pursuing comedy or acting, having set his mind on a military path since his youth. During high school, his plans shifted as he started to gain a lot of attention and positive reviews thanks to his performance in a school play. This would lead him to pursue another path, and he became heavily involved in his theatre community in Florida.
Over the next few years, he would work on several stage productions including “I’m Not Rappaport”, “A Chorus Line”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, and “A Raisin in the Sun” which is a Broadway play inspired by the poem entitled “Harlem” written by Langston Hughes.
The play tells the story of a black family in Chicago which is financially troubled and attempts to rise above their situation using the insurance they gained from the death of their father. In 1996, he moved to Los Angeles to look for more opportunities, leading to minor or guest roles in shows such as “In the Heat of the Night”, and “I’ll Fly Away”.
Wayne Brady’s Success
Wayne found his breakthrough when he became a part of the television show called “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, which showcased his talent for both comedy and improvisation.
The show is a US adaptation of the original series of the same name aired in the UK, and he‘s a regular performer alongside Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles. The performers play a series of improvisational games and are awarded points which actually have no merit, but the performances provide entertainment for both the live and television audience.
Following the success of the program, he then became the host of “The Wayne Brady Show”, which aired for two years before its cancellation.
He became a household name once more when he was cast as the host of “Don’t Forget the Lyrics!”, and he also hosted the revival of “Let’s Make a Deal”, which began airing once more in 2009.
Aside from his television work, he continues to perform on stage, playing the drag queen Lola in the Broadway show “Kinky Boots”. He was also a recurring character in the TV series “How I Met Your Mother” playing the brother of Neil Patrick Harris’ character Barney Stinson. During his career, he’s won five Emmy Awards.
At 16 years of age, Maile is single and has not shown any signs of being in a relationship. Her parents separated when she was three years old, but the two remain friends, raised their daughter together, and still meet up regularly. Her father has credited her mother for helping him recover from a mental breakdown, as he suffers from clinical depression. Neither of her parents have remarried or been in other relationships since divorcing, apparently busy with their respective careers. Her mother works primarily as a martial artist and yoga instructor.
