Taraji P. Henson & Queen Latifah on Bringing Cookie & Bessie to Life

This is dope. Peep what Taraji said about creativity at the 8 min mark.

“You could almost hear the music as Queen Latifah joined Taraji P. Henson in Variety’s Actors on Actors studio for a candid conversation about their groundbreaking roles — one as blues singer Bessie Smith in the HBO biopic, the other as the notorious Cookie in Fox’s hip-hop hit “Empire.” The longtime friends opened up about mining their life experiences for their characters, Latifah’s 22-year-journey to bring “Bessie” to the screen — and Henson’s surprising sitcom dreams.” – Debra Birnbaum / Variety
