Ambitions is a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta, Georgia.

The show stars Robin Givens, Brian White, Essence Atkins, Kendrick Cross, and now joining the cast is the lovely and talented Actress Mara Hall.

This show is your modern-day soap opera full of nothing but juicy drama. The midseason finale last August ended on an explosive cliffhanger when Senior Lancaster (Tony Vaughn) was murdered.

I had a chance to catch up and share many laughs with the multi-talented actress Mara Hall who is best known for her roles in popular television shows like, Grey’s Anatomy, and appearances on Scandal. Outside of work, she is living her best life while inspiring others on her social media platforms, teaching music, and being a new mom to her beautiful and joyful 9-month-old daughter. She also is currently working to write and produce a short film titled, “Juicy Ladies” which will tell the story of a young lady struggling with Type 2 Diabetes and finding love. Hall informed me that the movie is based on some of her own personal experiences as well as her journey as a Type 2 Diabetic.

Mara expressed that it has been an amazing experience working on the set of Ambitions, especially with two legendary female actresses, Robin Givens and Essence Atkins.

“You know they are legends in the African American community and I’ve loved Robin Givens since she was on Head of the Class in like 1987 and I told her that when I met her….Essence is such an amazing actress who does not age at all…it’s just been an amazing experience working with both of them.”

On Ambition’s Mara Hall comes on board playing Darcia Lancaster, who is Rondell’s cousin.

“My character is a ride or die for her cousin and she loves her cousins and she is there for support in their time of need.”

Mara expressed while laughing that her character on the show is the complete opposite of her in real life.

“The character Darcia is totally different from Mara, a total 360-degree departure from who I am….I’m nice and she’s not that.”
