Trai Byers Empire
Byers portrays Andre Lyon on Fox’s television series, Empire. Andre Martin Lyon is a main character in the Empire television series. He is the eldest son of Lucious and Cookie Lyon and the president of Empire Entertainment’s spin-off subsidiary label Gutter Life Records. Andre, a Wharton Business School graduate, is in charge of Empire’s finances, working alongside his father to ensure the company’s financial stability.
Trai Byers plays him, and he first appeared in the film “Pilot.” Andre, the eldest and most educated of the three Lyon sons, is the oldest and most educated. From a young age, he displayed advanced intelligence and cunning. He was a child when the police raided their house, and he was playing with a pile of Lego while singing along with his father. When Andre noticed his father’s panicked placement of his gun in an obvious hiding place, he quickly took the gun and hid it under his Lego pile to avoid suspicion before the police arrived and were unaware of this act.
After the cops had gone, Andre told his father about the incident, and the latter embraced him as a thank you for his assistance and safety. He graduated from the Wharton Business School many years later. He met and eventually dated Rhonda Lyon, who would later become his wife, while a student. In “The Outspoken King,” it is revealed that he suffers from bipolar disorder but is more concerned with gaining control of the Empire and thus disregards his mental health.
He is envious of his younger brothers’ talent and attention, despite the fact that he gets Empire through a lot of things. He believes that if it hadn’t been for him, there would have been no IPO and Empire would not have done so well. Andre has accomplished much for Empire, but his lack of musical talent, as well as Rhonda’s presence, have strained his relationship with his father.
Trai Byers 90210
Byers had a recurring character, Alec Martin, in Season 5 of 90210. Alec is Max’s business partner and an Ivy League-educated “tech” guy. Alec, despite his charm and attractiveness, has no time for Naomi. Alec is envious of Max Miller’s marriage to Naomi Clark after spending the first few years of his college career with him as his best friend/roommate/business partner. He promises Naomi that he intends to ruin Naomi and Max’s relationship, but when Naomi tells Max that his friend is out to get her, Max is skeptical.
Alec surprises Naomi with a kiss when Naomi takes him out for a fun day so they can try to be friends. Naomi has no idea that Alec photographed their kiss in order to show Max and persuade him to want a divorce from Naomi. When Naomi discovers that Alec has sent e-mails to Max’s ex-fiancee, Madison Stewart, suggesting that she hire Naomi as the wedding planner, it becomes clear that Alec was also attempting to ruin Max and Madison’s relationship.
Naomi, fed up with Alec’s meddling in their marriage, asks Max to choose between the two of them. Max decides to stay with Naomi, and Alec decides to leave the company. Alec then secretly prepares his ex-girlfriend, Bryce Woodbridge, for a job interview with Max. Bryce is successful, and Max hires her only to discover that she is only there to get him fired as CEO of his and (formerly) Alec’s company. Later, Naomi and Alec have a huge argument about Max, which leads her to realize that Alec is in love with Max. Alec asks Naomi if she will promise not to tell Max about his secret feelings, and she agrees.
