'Empire' Cookie Time's Most Influential Fictional Character 2015

Topping The Minions and Imperator Furiosa, Cookie from the FOX show Empire tops Time magazine's 16 Most Influential Characters of 2015.

"With her high-drama scheming and higher-drama wardrobe, the Lyon family matriarch (played by Taraji P. Henson) was the biggest draw on TV's most popular new show, Empire, luring more than 13 million viewers a week," the magazine wrote.

"In addition to spawning countless memos and catchphrases, she also helped inspire a clothing line at Saks Fifth Avenue.

"As Cookie herself said, "That's my name. Take a bite."

The fall finale Empire aired Wed. 2 on FOX19 NOW. New episodes are scheduled to resume Wednesday, March 30.
