There are a lot of evil characters on Empire, but Anika Calhoun (Grace Byers) was a whole other level of wicked. It’s no secret she didn’t get along with a lot of the Lyon family — especially Cookie — and she caused a lot of problems for most of the clan.
In this video, Byers says goodbye to her extremely complicated yet amazing-to-watch character for good and she then gives her thanks to the fans for being on this journey with her through thick and thin.
“To everyone who has been following Anika, who has loved her journey, and who has loved to hate her, and hate to love her, thank you. Thank you for listening to her story.” Watch the clip above to see Byers’ heartfelt goodbye and remember all the craziness she put us through!
