Turning up for its third season the Empire TV show on FOX has cast actress and singer Sierra Aylina McClain. According to THR, McClain will recur as Nessa, a protege of Shyne Johnson, played by Xzibit, a new series regular. The young actress has also appeared on the House of Payne and A.N.T. Farm TV series.
THR says Nessa seems, “…upon first glance, [to be] merely a timid follower to Lucious’ former partner in crime. A second listen, however, reveals she is a rare talent with a killer voice whom Lucious (Terrence Howard) is determined to sign to Empire’s roster.”
