Courtney Love is known for being an iconic rock 'n' roll diva – and now she's playing one on TV!
With her current guest star role as rocker Elle Dallas on Fox's Empire, Love – who got a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 1996's The People vs. Larry Flynt – is cementing her return to acting that began with a recurring role on Sons of Anarchy last year and a stage production in New York that ran through January.
