While Taraji .P. Henson was playing out the role of Cookie Lyon in one of the most watched series EMPIRE, she never would have imagined it will get her named the most influential fictional character of 2015.
Time Magazine has listed 16 characters from Christian Grey of Fifty Shades of Grey to Jon Snow of Game of Thrones and Cookie Lyon amidst all tops that list.
Explaining why Cookie Lyon tops the list, TIME says;
“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. 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.”
We totally agree with TIME magazine on this one…. See the full list HERE!
