La La Anthony keeps putting in work, or should we say werk. The Power player and Latina’s winter edition cover bae recently booked a recurring role on Fox’s musical drama Star. La La will play Paola, Angel Rivera’s (Evan Ross) estranged mom, who is also somehow connected (the plot thickens!) to Benjamin Bratt’s Jahil. Fox renewed the show for a second season in February 2017.

Star was co-created by Lee Daniels of Empire fame and Tom Donaghy. Set in Atlanta, the series follows three singers played by Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, and Brittany O’Grady who navigate the tricky (and treacherous) music industry. When the series premiered, it made TV history when Amiyah Scott (Cotton) became the third openly transgender person to play a trans character in an American scripted drama. Scott follows the path set by Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox and Sense8's Jamie Clayton.

The hit show is known for its musical performances, soundtrack, and bomb guest stars and recurring folks like Missy Elliott, Brandy, and Teyana Taylor. Expect to see rapper Quavo from Migos to guest star in season 2 with La La as well.
