Vivica A. Fox Penning Inspirational Memoir Book
Vivica A. Fox is adding author to her resume. The ‘Empire’ co-star has inked a book deal with St. Martin’s Press. The book is described as ‘part memoir and part inspirational‘.
Fox recently shared this news exclusively with theJasmineBRAND.com and also revealed details on her new series.
I have a show coming to Lifetime in January called Vivica’s Black Magic about taking eight males who are exotic dancers on a journey to get a residency in Las Vegas.
Last month, she snagged a monumental role, as the first African American female president in her a sci-fi film, Crossbreed. She revealed that she didn’t audition for the role, telling us:
Actually, I was really blessed that my agent Sheila Legette knew the producers and they threw my name out there and took it to the director and the director was like ‘Oh my God! Do you think we can get her to do it?’. I was so thrilled that there wasn’t an auditioning process. [They] thought it was a no brainer for me to play president, they wanted to do something different from the norm.
Fox admits that at the time, she didn’t realize how historical the role would be.
I had no idea to be honest with you, I’ve known about it for the past two weeks. I’ve been so busy working – finishing up shows and traveling and campaigning for Hillary [Clinton] that when my agent hit me and said ‘They want you to play president,’ I was like, ‘Okay!’ Especially during a time where we may be electing our first female president, and now for people to get to see an African American female as president of the United States, just shows you how far we have come.
No additional details about her new book have yet been released.
