Lee Daniels Casts Transgender Amiyah Scott For “Empire” Spin-Off
According to TMZ, Lee Daniels is working on a spin-off for the Fox hit TV show and he’s already given Amiyah Scott a part.
Allegedly Amiyah Scott, a transgender woman, caught Lee Daniels’ attention when rumor had it she would be joining the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta. The Empire spin-off is a prequel, and will focus on Cookie Lyon’s early life. Amiyah won’t be playing Cookie, however. Daniels has tapped Amiyah to play one of the singers in a singing group. This will be her first ever acting role.
Congrats to Amiyah on her new role. It’ll be interesting to see who else will be starring in the new show.
