Naomi Campbell snags a recurring role in Lee Daniels new TV series 'Star...'
In the new series, about three girls clawing their way to the top of the music industry, Naomi plays the beautiful, wealthy and cultivated London-born mother of one of the girls.
But don't go in looking for this to be a prequel or sequel to Lee Daniels' hit series Empire.
Daniels tells Billboard Mag,
[Star] is the complete antithesis of Empire. I don’t know whether you ever saw the first 15 minutes of John Waters’ Female Trouble, but these girls will do whatever it takes. They’ll murder. They’ll f— you. They’ll rob you. [The characters] Star and Simone are very, very poor. They come from the foster-care system, and we explore the atrocities that happen there.Starring Queen Latifah and transgender actress Amiyah Scott, 'Star' premiers on Fox early 2017.
