Serayah McNeill Coming Into Her Own
Despite her ever diminishing screen time on Empire, actress Serayah McNeill seems to still be benefiting from the show’s success. She’s recently been signed to Sony Entertainment and has finally gotten around to putting the finishing touches on her first solo album, reportedly set to be released this coming fall.
She’s also been covering a number of smaller magazines, including Rolling Out. Serayah is gracing the April/May edition of the magazine, which you can either view digitally or pick up at your local newsstand.
In her interview I was hoping Serayah would give us a few clues about her status on Empire, but she doesn’t reveal anything we don’t already know. She was absent from last night’s episode, but she will appear in the next two that I have seen already. The show appears to be setting up some kind of rivalry between her character, Tiana, and the show’s other female singer, Laura Calleros. And while two women bickering over a man (Hakeem) isn’t a favorite storyline of mine, if it keeps Serayah from being totally sidelined, I’ll suffer through it.
