(But we know you’re going to scroll down, right?)
Taraji P. Henson stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman to discuss the shocking death of her character Detective Joss Carterâ€” and she reveals that she’s known all along from the very beginning!
“I knew when I signed on to the project that the character would have a beginning, middle and end,” Taraji said.Â “Because me, I do more feature films and television is really not my thing…So I thought it would be the perfect venue for me to do a television show and not be stuck for seven years and still be able to do…whatever.”
The only thing she wasn’t aware of? When the character would die off.
“Oh my god, the secret is out, I can live my life!” she exclaimed. “I felt like I’ve been hiding a secret, keeping a secret from my lover! My mom, she knew, and my grandmother. ‘Cause you can’t shock grandma like that, she might go into cardiac arrest!”
We’ll miss Det. Carter!
