Who Plays Giselle On Empire? – Nicole Ari Parker

Nicole Ari Parker will play Giselle in episode 4 of Empire‘s fourth season, “Slave To Memory.” Nicole appears to have a relationship with Forest Whitaker’s character Eddie Barker.  The last time we saw Uncle Eddie, he was overworking Empire Entertainment’s employees.  Porsha and the rest of the company’s employees went on strike and Cookie had to fix Eddie’s mess.

The episode summary explains that Eddie is concluding his tenure at Empire.  Now that Lucious is back, the company no longer needs Eddie’s help.  Eddie seems honest but you can’t trust anyone on Empire.  He’s a part of Lucious’ old crew and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s plotting on the Lyons.
