Vivica A. Fox is returning to Empire! In fact, the Hollywood actress hints that her character, Candace Holloway, might be a new fixture on the show as creator Lee Daniels wants to have less guest stars moving forward. That means of course that we’ll be seeing more of sisters Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Candace in action together.
Vivica told TooFab during an interview, “I just know that Candace is coming back … so I don’t know where we’re going next to be honest, because they just started, I just know Candace is coming back and I’m thrilled. I love working with them.”
Vivica also made it no secret that she absolutely loves working with Taraji P. Henson along with the rest of the Empire cast. So does this mean that Vivica might become a show regular? Here’s hoping!
“Working with Taraji, who I just adore, this is our first time sharing the screen together and I’ve known her for 20 years,” Fox explained, adding, “Terrence [Howard] and I, we all go back like Kool-Aid. It’s like a family reunion. Jussie [Smollett], I’ve known him since he was a baby and his family. When I go and work with them, it’s like a wonderful high school reunion in Chicago and I’m from the mid-west, so to be there in the mid-west working, it’s just magical for me.”
