Henson plays Cookie Lyon on Lee Daniels' Empire, which finished its smash first season last month on Fox. She's also starred on Person of Interest and Boston Legal, and has appeared in movies including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, No Good Deed, Date Night, and The Karate Kid.

Henson will host Saturday Night Live this weekend with musical guest Mumford & Sons.
