Following the death of her character Anika, Grace Byers will no longer be part of the “Empire” cast.
She will, however, be on a FOX drama next season.
In a Tuesday afternoon announcement, the network revealed that Grace Byers will be joining “The Gifted.”
The actress will play Reeva, “a smart, charming, authoritative, elegant, beautiful woman who is ruthless in her efforts to fight for her people. She leads an elite band of followers and has a soft spot for her new recruits, but is still capable of extreme violence in defense of her vision.”
Per the announcement, Reeva will be part of the Inner Circle with Polaris, Andy and The Frost Sisters.
“The Gifted” moves to Tuesdays this fall.
