Luckily, actor Rafael de la Fuente — who played Jamal’s handsome partner-turned-ex Michael Sanchez last season — stopped by the Wetpaint office to dish on his return to the popular TV show.


While Rafael wouldn't tell if Michael and Jamal rekindle their love, he did open up about how Michael will be changed when he comes back, plus how the cast is dealing with the pressure of Empire Season 1's incredible ratings, and more.
