The rumor about Amiyah Scott joining the latest season of Real Housewives of Atlanta may have been off, but it appears the transgender model has an even bigger project in the works and it involves your favorite show.
TMZ claims Scott has landed a role in an Empire spinoff creator Lee Daniels is working on. Word is the spinoff will be a prequel of sorts, centered around a young Cookie Lyon and her life before Lucious and the music biz. Daniels reportedly saw Scott and loved her look and thought she’d be perfect to play a member of a girl group in the coming project which he is said to have asked her to read for in late August.
That’s all the details on this project so far, but with some fans already losing faith in the Fox show we’re wondering if this spinoff will ever see the light of day. One thing that is clear is Scott is an obvious fan of the franchise.
