Danielle Savre's character, bisexual firefighter Maya Bishop, has been part of the colorful ensemble of Station 19, the Grey's Anatomy spin-off now in its second season on ABC.
Maya is Savre's first lead role on network TV. Previously the actress/singer had starred on the MTV music drama Kaya and the TLC drama Too Close to Home.
Maya spent much of Station 19 Season 1 serving as an enabler for her best friend, Andrea “Andy” Herrera, one of the station's two lieutenants, along with Jack Gibson, Andy's ex-boyfriend.

This season Maya, a former Olympic gold medalist in the 1,000 meters, is stepping up. On the recommendation of Chief Ripley and Captain Sullivan, Maya applied for and got promoted to the rank of lieutenant.
Only intervention by Sullivan with the chief kept Maya from being transferred to another station.
