With Fox’s “Empire” season 2 finale going down tonight (May 18), R&B veteran Mya tells SOHH about her interest in appearing on the show.
While the series has enjoyed various real-life celebs, Mya said she would want a different identity on the small screen.
“I would want to go on “Empire” and not play myself. I would want to go on there and play a role that is completely opposite of what people expect of me as a true actress,” Mya told SOHH. “So of course I would love that opportunity. It’s an awesome show and it has everything to do with business and entertainment in the game.” (SOHH)
Recently, “Empire” star Bre-Z spoke to SOHH about her show’s overwhelming success.
“I think “Empire” is one of the greatest things to happen to this generation. I’m very thankful for Lee Daniels and the team for this creation of the show. It’s an honor to be a part of it. It’s number one because it’s number one. There’s not a flaw, in my opinion, in the show. It caters to a few different walks of life that have never been broadcasted to national primetime television. Most shows are so made-up and scripted and dramatic, over-the-top but this show’s very safe. It’s a very safe show.” (SOHH)
Earlier this year, show stud Trai Byers denied reports about wanting to leave “Empire.”
Recent reports about Trai wanting to ditch the hit Fox television series landed across various media outlets.
“Trai wants out,” said an insider. “He feels that he studied at Yale and he’s a ‘true thespian’ . . . The character is beneath him. He has an idea of himself as being this big Shakespearean actor.” “At first, being on ‘Empire’ was major for him. But he feels his character is not as important this season, and he hates not being the star,” said a source. “He thinks he has the acting chops of Taraji and Terrence. He doesn’t get how the show benefits him, and he feels he has way too much talent when he’s not the star by any means.” (Page Six)
