We’ve already met some of ‘Cookie’s colorful family–‘Candace’ played by the LOVELY Vivica A. Fox, and ‘Carol’ portrayed by the talented Tasha Smith, it will be INTERESTING to see the LADY that birthed these 3 spitfires, right!? Alfre Woodard is sure to bring an all new LAYER to this complex family structure and add her signature grit to this character. We can not wait to see just how she enters the COMPLEX ‘Empire’ world!
The NEW SEASON kicks off March 28th only on FOX and FOXNOW!
