Lee Daniels Says Naomi Campbell Will Return for ‘Empire’ Season 2 (Video)

Show creator announces news at Met Gala

Naomi Campbell will guest star again in Fox’s “Empire” next season, show creator Lee Daniels said on Monday.

The two arrived together at the evening’s Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art gala, where they were promptly bombarded with questions about the smash hit soap opera, on which Campbell plays Camilla Marks, the “cougar” dating Hakeem, the youngest talent of Lucious Lyon’s brood.

When “Inside Edition” asked the former supermodel if she would return for Season 2, she deflected the question to date Daniels: “I don’t know, Lee are you bringing me back?” she asked, apparently in earnest.

The director/writer/producer replied, “Of course I am,” adding, “I said you were!”

Campbell swore that she didn’t know. Even if she was faking ignorance, that’s the kind of solid acting we’ll see next fall on Fox.

Neither Fox network nor the TV studio immediately replied to TheWrap‘s request for comment on the red carpet revelation.
