Published

on

Taraji P Henson, best known these days for her role as Cookie in Fox TV’s Empire series, will someday visit these parts for T&T Carnival – the Greatest Show on Earth. The actress whose unique sense of appeal makes her one of the most enjoyed US actresses, says the visit is on her bucket list!

Henson was in Toronto on the weekend for the International Film Festival where parts of Fox’s “Hidden Figures” was screened. The film, while unfinished, features Taraji in the role of real-life space mathematician Katherine Johnson, during the Jim Crow era. In a brief encounter with Trinidadian, Nikoli Edwards – the Commonwealth Youth Vice Chairman, Henson excitedly revealed that she would one day be a part of T&T Carnival. She didn’t reveal exactly when we could expect her to visit, but by the expression on her face, it’s safe to assume that she won’t be allowing too much time to pass by!

Here’s what she said about her imminent visit to the Caribbean for T&T Carnival:

“Hidden Figures” is an upcoming 2016 American biographical drama film directed by Theodore Melfi from a screenplay co-written with Allison Schroeder, based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly. The film stars Henson as Katherine Johnson, the African American physicist, space scientist, and mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for Project Mercury and the 1969 Apollo 11 flight to the Moon. The film also features Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons.

Here’s a the movie trailer for the upcoming film.

Cardi B, the Bronx, New York native who’s got Trini ancestry, touched down in Trinidad earlier today, telling one photographer, “you gotta make sure my nose don’t look too big okkkkk.” He later posted an image of the superstar sans makeup, gesticulating just how you’d imagine the sentiment to be relayed in true Cardi B fashion.

Cardi’s in town for tonight’s Big Bad Soca event. The lineup includes Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Shenseea of Jamaica, Machel Montano, Patrice Roberts, Lyrikal, Voice, Shal Marshall and more. The event is hosted by 66 Entertainment- the promotional outfit that brought Blac Chyna and Amber Rose to T&T for BaeWatch on Ash Wednesday two years ago.

Speculation has been rife that Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons have been in talks with Cardo B’s team regarding future projects.
