The Gifted Adds Grace Byers for Season 2 Role

Actress Grace Byers may no longer be on Empire, but she’s staying in the Fox family with a new role on The Gifted.

She joins The Gifted cast for Season 2, as the series makes the switch to Tuesday nights this fall. Byers will be a series regular and play the character of Reeva.  Reeva is described as ” 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.”

The Gifted is one of the few new shows that I stuck with last year. It does a good job in depicting how hard it would be to exist as a mutant in the real world, creates a real sense of danger, and makes good use of mutant abilities. One of my favorite aspects was how the mutants would often use their abilities together in creative ways.

I enjoyed Byers as Anika on Empire and look forward to seeing what she brings to The Gifted in season 2.
