‘Empire’ went there. The show killed off a beloved series regular on the Sept. 21 premiere, and [SPOILER] released incredible behind-the-scenes looks of the scene that shocked fans everywhere. Click to WATCH!
Rhonda was the one to bite the dust after fighting with Anika (Grace Gealey) and falling from the balcony. Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) were right there as Rhonda came crashing down onto their car. Kaitlin Doubleday released behind-the-scenes footage as they filmed the jaw-dropping scene, including the moment her stunt double to took that nasty fall!
In the video, Kaitlin’s stunt double hovers above the car on cables. As soon as the director yells “action,” the stunt double plunges onto the car. The moment of impact sounds like an explosion. It’s wild to watch. Kaitlin captioned the video, “This was incredible. We were all so impressed with my stunt woman. She killed it (literally)! #empire.”
Kaitlin also shared a video featuring her co-star Jussie. “B*tch, I’m wearing a wig, and Kaitlin’s a** is…” Jussie says, before Kaitlin adds, “About to die.” Jussie then tells Kaitlin that he’s going to miss her. “But she will forever live within our hearts,” Jussie says. Kaitlin finishes Jussie’s sentence with, “And our cocks.” LOL.
We can’t believe Rhonda’s dead! Her and Andre (Trai Byers) were such a good team! How is Andre going to go on without her? At the end of the season 3 premiere, a grief-stricken Andre started hallucinating Rhonda. Rhonda was dressed fabulously from head-to-toe and started going on and on about who was going to take care of Andre now. Will Rhonda continue to appear as a ghost? Let’s hope so! Empire airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
