Only “Extra’s” Special Correspondent Miss USA Cheslie Kryst was on the set of “Empire” with the show’s star Terrence Howard as he shot the final season of the hit FOX show.

Terrence broke the news that he isn’t just going to be done with “Empire” when the show is over — he’s going to be done with acting! Cheslie asked, “What do you think will happen with your career? What do you see yourself doing going forward?” Terrence responded, “Oh, I’m done with acting. I’m done pretending.”

Cheslie followed up, asking, “You're finishing up, you're no long acting, and you're focusing solely on philanthropy and other interests?” Terrence replied, “No, not philanthropy; I'm just focusing on bringing truth to the world.”

What will he miss when the show ends? “The cast,” he said. “I love the cast members. I will miss them a great deal, and the crew.”

So what does the show have in store for Lucious for the last season? A promo shows him lying on the ground, but Terrence wasn’t giving too many clues! “I’m sure he might have been sleeping," he teased.

See what happens when “Empire” returns to FOX on September 24.
