Taraji P. Henson fired team for not capitalising on Empire's success
  • 4 months ago
After starring as Cookie Lyon on all six seasons of the drama from 2015 to 2020 the actress wanted to make the most of her character's popularity - but her team didn't follow through. While speaking to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation in a recent interview, Taraji named "firing everybody after Cookie" as the best business move she's made in her career. "Everybody had to f**king go. Where is my deal? Where's my commercial? Cookie was at the top of the fashion game. Where is my endorsement? What did you have set up for after this?”
