Naomi Campbell Books Recurring Role on Fox's 'Empire'
Actress, supermodel and producer Naomi Campbell will be featured as a recurring guest star on FOX’s sexy and powerful new family drama, EMPIRE. Campbell will play CAMILLA, an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much-younger potential heir to his father’s throne, HAKEEM (newcomer Bryshere Gray), over whom she exercises considerable influence. EMPIRE will debut in early 2015 on FOX.
“Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” said co-creator and executive producer Lee Daniels (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Precious”). “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”
Campbell added, “It’s an honor to follow in the footsteps of actresses like Halle Berry, Oprah, Gabourey Sidibe and Mo'Nique, and work with Lee Daniels. I’m looking forward to joining Lee and this amazing cast on set.”
