Trai Byers

Before Trai Byers became a memorable character on the hit FOX show “Empire,” he was dreaming about acting at Bible camp.

In an interview with Bleu magazine, the 32-year-old actor recalled the Christian camp being the origin of where his acting dreams were birthed.

“I’m told that as a kid at vacation Bible camp, [the church] asked me what I wanted to be and I said a movie star,” Byers recalled. “The first performance I remember seeing and thinking, wow, this is somebody who is actually doing this for living. I’m not watching this in real life.”
