Nse Ikpe Etim, Funke Akindele, Kate Henshaw: Which of these actresses can best play Cookie Lyon’s role in EMPIRE?
International Movie series have been captivating and worth all the media attention that has come its way and we must appreciate the characters that have held us spellbound.
The major characters in Movie series won’t live forever or always available to play their coveted roles. For this reason, we decide to draw a poll of Nigerian actresses who can best fit into a movie role in a particular series, Empire. Cookie Lyon, a role played by America’s Taraji P. Henson. In the event that she’s not available to play the role, who do you think among these Nigerian actresses can successfully play surrogate for the Cookie Lyon role?
Below are just a cursory description of the wonderful actresses,
Nse Ikpe Etim: The delectable & beautiful role interpreter and one of the actresses who has made this shortlist for her obvious overwhelming acting skills. The actress has starred in blockbuster movies over the past years and her role in Mr & Mrs. is a very good pointer to what she is capable of. She is dynamic and can play the Cookie Lyon role in Empire.
Funke Aknidele: Here’s an actress who shot to fame via her Jenifa movie but put aside her comic skills, Funke is a masterclass in her field. This is because of her different movie roles in the Yoruba movie Industry, and her balance with English-speaking roles is just awesome. A movie in which she co-starred with Femi Adebayo, Taiwo Taiwo in 2008 is a very good realistic portrayal of what she can do with scripts.
Kate Henshaw: The actress is also a very good fit for the role. Her longevity in the game, her strength in permeating between soft and rigid character, is just an epic feature of the Cross-River State Native. The actress is one who has starred in different movie roles and has never been static or stereotyped of any means. Her role in ‘Stronger than Pain’ is a landmark of what we adore her for.
