But according to reports, tension is slowly building among the series’ cast following Empire’s successful debut season. And a source speaking to Daily Mail Online said that the attitudes of Empire leads Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard may be playing a major role in the division among their castmates. “Taraji and Terrence call for re-writes if they don't like the lines or feel as though another character is getting more camera time than they are,” the source said. “They both have final approval over the script, which often frustrates the other actors because it causes their lines to regularly change.”
