Phylicia Rashad Lands Recurring Role On “Empire”

“Empire” fans will welcome a new face this season, none other than Phylicia Rashad.

The veteran actress will portray Diana Dubois, a powerhouse from one of New York’s oldest and most prominent African-American families. Her character will be the mother of city councilman Angelo Dubois played by Taye Diggs.

FOX reports:

Diana Dubois has her sights set on higher office for her only son, and she’ll stop at nothing to groom him. Diana’s interactions with Cookie, Lucious and the rest of the Lyon clan will lay bare the stark class divides that can exist, even within the black community.

“Empire” premieres Wednesday, September 21 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
