Amiyah Scott, the transgender woman caught Lee Daniels attention when she was rumored to be joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta but was rejected. 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 casted Amiyah to play one of the singers in a singing group. This will be her first ever acting role.

Congrats to Amiyah Scott on her new role! Can’t wait to see who else will be apart of the cast in this new show.
