The characters on ‘Empire’ may not always get along, but the actors that play them sure do! Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, and more of the cast have posted some of the best photos to show that they’re totally #FamilyGoals.
The Empire cast truly acts like a family, and it’s seriously precious. The entire Lyon crew — Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, and Bryshere Y. Gray — have so much fun offscreen while they’re waiting to get back to the drama and back-stabbing on the show.
Cookie and Lucious may be odds almost all of the time, but Taraji and Terrence are best buds. The pair has known each other for over a decade! They love to goof around with each other and keep the mood light when the cameras aren’t rolling.
Jussie, who plays Taraji and Terrence’s onscreen son Jamal, loves to chronicle his time on the Empire set and post fabulous photos. He’s always by Taraji’s side, just like Cookie and Jamal on the show! We’ll never forget his sweet birthday message to Taraij.
“The whole world is in love with you,” Jussie captioned his Instagram photo. “I’m a part of that world. You continuously inspire with your humility, determination and the simple rule of treating every creature with love and respect. I learn from you. I cherish you. I love you.” Preach, Jussie! Taraji is a QUEEN!
Lucious and Boo Boo Kitty’s relationship on the show is tense, to say the least, but Terrence and Grace Byers have no bad blood in real life. They’re adorable. And don’t even get us started with Grace and hubby Trai Byers. These two lovebirds met on the show and are now married! Empire is the place where true love and family is all around you. Check out the rest of the cute photos now!
