Henson will star in a new series called empire
Taraji P. Henson is an actor that has been around the block. Many will recognize her as playing Carter in the TV series Person of Interest. I liked her character on that show and when she was suddenly bumped off, it was very strange. Almost as strange as the sudden love Mr. Reese felt for her right before her demise.
Now that Henson has left Person of interest, she is talking about her new role reports Eurweb. She will be appearing on a show called Empire. Henson said, "’Empire‘ is like “The Sopranos” meets “Dynasty,” plus hip-hop. The empire is a record label and Lucious (Terrence Howard), who plays my husband, is about to take the company public so they stand to make a lot of money."
“My character and Lucious both sold drugs when they were really young and silly to start the record label so my character goes away, does 17 hard years, comes home and now that the company is about to make so much money, the crabs come out the barrel,” she said.
“God is good. What you’re about to witness is a perfect storm. It’s the perfect timing. I filmed “From The Rough” four or five years ago and back then I was like ‘It’s got to come out now’ and God was like I have a plan for you,” she said. “Watch what I do. So now I have a film coming out in the spring, I have one coming out in the summer, and I also have one coming out in the fall…” she said.
