Who Plays Young Tariq On Empire? Cardeion Banks

Cardeion Banks is the actor who plays young Tariq on Empire.  As seen in the image below, the young actor is from Wisconsin, Milwaukee to be exact.  We were happy to find out that there would be a young version of Lucious' brother because there are still so many unanswered questions involving Lucious' past.

Actor, Morocco Omari plays present day Tariq "The Freak" Cousins.  Empire Entertainment's future could be negatively impacted if Tariq is able to dig up any dirt on Lucious.  We're surprised the brothers haven't turned to their mother, Leah Walker (Leslie Uggams) for more information about their fathers.

When it comes to flashbacks, Lee Daniels and co. know exactly how to deliver a compelling story.  The trash can scene was one of the saddest moments I've ever watched on television.  If Tariq's flashbacks are half as bad, I might not be able to watch.  We already saw the incident between Lucious and Tariq's father, and that was horrific enough!

Speaking of sad flashbacks, who can forget Cookie in jail, begging to die.  It's easy to take Empire for granted now that the show's record-breaking first season is old news.  The series is no long shattering historic records but it's still delivering captivating content on a consistent basis.
