Grace Byers is opening up about working with husband Trai Byers.
Lady Grace spoke with Ebony about the pros of working with her Empire co-star husband.
What are some of the pros of working with your husband, Trai Byers (Andre Lyon)?
Believe it or not, getting to see him at work in itself is a pro. I love being able to work with him. Also, when we do have a scene together, it’s an honor for me. Relationship aside, I think he’s a phenomenal actor and a wonderful partner to play opposite of. I know every scene we’ve had so far has been very dramatic and kind of a downer, but I always have a ball.
I know this is going to sound crazy, but I’ve yet to think of a con, even I thought it would be overwhelming initially.
Yeah, I think the assumption is you guys work together all day, then go home and are together all night, which can seem like a lot.
I know, but it’s not overwhelming at all. I think the difference is that I don’t work every day with him. He works more often than I do, and sometimes we’re working in two totally different areas on set, so we may not see each other for hours. I think if we were working a 9- to-5 and literally saw each other all day, every day, it would be different.
But there really isn’t a con, at least not yet [laughs]!
