Supermodel Naomi Campbell Joins Fox Series “Empire”
The actress, model and producer has boarded the network’s hip-hop drama in a major recurring role, THR has learned.
The family drama is set in the world of a hip-hop empire and stars Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), the head of a record label at the center of the series.
Campbell will portray Camilla, an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much-younger Hakeem (newcomer Bryshere Gray), the potential heir to Lucious’ throne. Tasha exercises considerable influence over Hakeem.
“Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” said co-creator/executive producer Daniels (The Butler, Precious). “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”
