There’s more to the Fox music drama series Empire than hostility, competition and crisis. Love has bloomed on set, and one couple has sealed the deal.
Trai Byers, 32, who plays Andre Lyon, and Grace Gealey, 31, who plays Anika, aka Boo Boo Kitty, have confirmed reports that they are married. His character is Cookie’s (Taraji P. Henson’s) eldest son, and her business executive character has been one of Cookie’s major rivals on the show.
But in real life, they are now Mr. & Mrs. Byers. That’s how they signed the same message that they posted on social media Sunday afternoon: “We’re married! God is so good. To all who have extended congrats and well wishes, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
