The drama Empire has just finished in the States to rave reviews with Season 2 in the pipeline.
Having friends who live in New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and LA, I was given instructions to look out for this series. Let’s cut straight to the chase, and I know TV execs probably won’t want to read this, but to watch TV with mixed and balanced images of ourselves, we need to look to the States and/or Africa so we go online.
So every Thursday morning at about 4.30am – I kid you not – a WhatsApp tone would make me up, or my landline would ring ……… “Angie get online girl, Cookie was on form tonight”
The infamous Cookie is the wife of Lucius Lyons, Empire record company owner.
Taraji P Henson plays Cookie and during her recent visit to London she came in the studio where we talked acting, we talked Empire and we talked Cookie.
Grab a glass of wine, tea, or water if you’re at home. If you’re in the car set your Bluetooth and listen to this powerhouse of an actress for the next 26 minutes and 38 seconds.
