Three snaps for our girl Cookie Lyon!
Yes Cookie girl!
TIME named Taraji P. Henson’s Empire character, Cookie Lyon, as the most influential fictional character of 2015.
“With her high-drama scheming and higher-drama wardrobe, the Lyon family matriarch (played by Taraji P. Henson) was the biggest draw on TV’s most popular new show, Empire, luring more than 13 million viewers a week,” the mag writes.
“In addition to spawning countless memes and catchphrases, she also helped inspire a clothing line at Saks Fifth Avenue. As Cookie herself said, ‘That’s my name. Take a bite.'”
For all the sassy and serious moments Cookie has given us, we couldn’t agree more! Do you have a favorite Cookie moment from the year?
