Gabourey Sidibe — Becky 
Actress Gabourey Sidibe plays Becky, Lucious Lyon's ice-blonde assistant. 

Did you know?: The Oscar-nominated actress (who starred in Lee Daniels' Precious) is half-Senegalese on her father's side. Her grandfather was actually the mayor of the country's capital city, Dakar.
