‘Empire’ Bumps Serayah to Regular Cast Member

Congrats are in order for Serayah McNeill, because she has been promoted from recurring cast member to series regular on FOX’s Empire.

The actress plays Tiana Brown, an up-and-coming R&B princess managed by Cookie Lyon.

In season one, the starlet began a romantic relationship with Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray), but her affair with another woman ended their union.

Now that she’s been upgraded, it looks like we’ll be learning a lot more about Ms. Tiana Brown.

Catch her when season 2 of Empire premieres Sept. 23.
