Is [Spoiler] Dead on 'Empire'? See the Actor's Telling Tweet
By Rachel McRady
Boom, boom, boom, boom, bang, bang, bang, bang! In the penultimate episode before the season finale of Empire, Jamal Lyon accidentally took a bullet from scorned rapper Freda Gatz. As fans of the hit Fox drama wondered what would happen to the flawless songbird, actor Jussie Smollett sent everyone into a panic with just one tweet.
“It was important for me to do something to challenge myself as an actor -- and to know that I can do other things,” he told ET in late March. “It made me stronger for Jamal.”
While Smollett is working on his career, several of his co-stars are focusing on their personal lives. Kaitlin Doubleday wed her longtime love last week and just last month co-stars Trai Byers and Grace Gealey tied the knot.
