Empire - Season 3 - Ezri Walker, Ajiona Alexus & Jeremy Carver to Recur

Fox’s Empire has found its teenage Cookie and Lucious. The flashback characters will be played by Ajiona Alexus and Jeremy Carver, respectively, who will recur along with Ezri Walker in the drama’s upcoming Season 3.

Alexus will be young Cookie, seen in flashback as a beautiful, innocent teenager, whose Catholic school uniform can’t hide “the Cookie spark.” Carver will play Lucious in flashback as a teenager with an incredible voice “and a bad-boy edge that captures the heart” of young Cookie.

Walker will play Zeah, described as a nerdy 16-year old “with an edge and real talent as a rapper. With his high GPA and serious smarts, this teenager finds himself torn between a future at an elite university and a career at Empire under the guidance of the legendary Lucious Lyon.”

Alexus (Code Black) will recur on Tom McCarthy’s Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why, based on the 2007 YA book by Jay Asher. She is represented by Greene & Associates Talent Agency and Society Entertainment.
