Say what? ‘Empire’s Taraji P. Henson has NO IDEA who Dumbledore is. Yes, really! Click inside to WATCH!

Taraji P. Henson, 44, is definitely a competitive person, and she showed off her quick-witted skills during a Aug. 18 visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In a game called “Speed Family Feud,” when both Taraji and Jimmy were asked to name celebrities with beards. However, when the name Dumbledore from Harry Potter came up, Taraji had absolutely no idea who he was!


Okay, wow. This is surprising, especially because Harry Potter was such an iconic book and film series! Believe it or not, Taraji did not have a clue as to who Dumbledore was when he was suggested as an answer on “Speed Family Feud.”

“What? Who is that?” Taraji asked, shocked to see Dumbledore’s name come up on the screen. Jimmy laughed but kept going, reading the other two answers on the Family Feud style board. Whoops!

Even though she doesn’t know the greatest wizard in the world, Taraji was still a total delight to watch on The Tonight Show. She was super competitive, anxious, and put a lot of effort into winning her around. You go girl1

Tell us, HollywoodLifers — What do YOU think about Taraji questioning Dumbledore the way she did? Are you shocked that she doesn’t know who he is? Comment below!
