Things are definitely looking up for Atlanta-based transgender model and internet celebrity Amiyah Scott. Multiple media outlets are reporting that Scott has landed a role in a spin-off of the Fox smash hit “Empire.” Out director Lee Daniels has reportedly cast Scott as a member of a girl-group featured prominently on the new show tentatively tilted “Star.”
The scripted drama will be based in Atlanta and will also feature Queen Latifah as one of the leads. Latifah will play Carlotta, the owner of an Atlanta beauty salon, with an amazing voice, who will become a surrogate mother to the three girls – even though she doesn’t approve of their musical dreams.
Daniels or Fox has yet to confirm the casting of Scott, but fans are pointing to a recent Instagram post that they believe foreshadows a big announcement from the transgender beauty that will be announced soon.
