Lorraine Laya the Equalizer

CBS’s “The Equalizer” Star Laya Hayes is all smiles this week as she reunited with co-star Lorraine Toussaint!

The two gathered together to show support for their friends and TV producer Debra Chase.

Laya shared:

“An absolute joy to celebrate the legend that is @debramchase last night at the @aimbykyleabraham gala! Always inspired by you💌 so honored to have been there!”

This is so beautiful and we cannot wait until the cast is back on set to film the brand new season. We’re missing the show a lot.

THE EQUALIZER is a reimagining of the classic series starring Academy Award® nominee and multi-hyphenate Queen Latifah (“Chicago,” “Bessie”) as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills as a former CIA operative to help those with nowhere else to turn. McCall presents to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is The Equalizer – an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who’s also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption. Robyn’s clandestine work and her personal life collide when her smart and observant daughter, Delilah, and her aunt Vi, who lives with Robyn to help her balance life as a working mother, discover her secret career as a vigilante. While Robyn contends with uncertainty at home, she is joined in her pursuit of justice by Melody “Mel” Bayani, an edgy bar owner and sniper from Robyn’s past; and Harry Keshegian, a paranoid and brilliant white-hat hacker. As Robyn aids the oppressed and exploited, she sometimes works with Marcus Dante, an NYPD detective who once sought to uncover her identity, but now respects the need for Robyn’s type of justice even as he often questions her methods.
