Naomi Campbell Joins Terrence Howard’s ‘Empire’

Published: Monday 29th Sep 2014 by Sam

Naomi Campbell may be renown for commanding the runway, but the supermodel is gearing up to dominate TV screens on Lee Daniels‘ hotly anticipated new FOX show ‘Empire’.

Details below…

Set to debut in early 2015, the series – which stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson – focusses on a family’s Hip-Hop empire. A fact which is being praised by cultural commentators for bringing an Urban flavoured show to prime-time.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Campbell isn’t joining in a fleeting capacity; her role will be substantial:

Lee Daniels is looking to longtime friend Naomi Campbell to spice things up on Fox’s 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 ButlerPrecious). “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”

Added Campbell: “It’s an honor to follow in the footsteps of actresses like Halle BerryOprahGabourey Sidibe and Mo’Nique, and work with Lee Daniels. I’m looking forward to joining Lee and this amazing cast on set.”

And we’re looking forward to see Ms. Campbell too
