“Empire” star Trai Byers got quizzed in a new edition of “Wrapid Fire” during an episode of “Drinking With the Stars.” Among the answers in the lighting round of TheWrap’s quiz, the actor picked his favorite line from onscreen mother Cookie played by Taraji P. Henson.
Like many viewers of the mega-hit Fox show, Byers said that Cookie Lyon is his favorite character. He also said that Cookie would beat ex-husband Lucious Lyon in a fight. And after seeing Cookie’s catfight with Anika at the end of season one, most would agree.
Byers also unveiled a love for all things Sam Cooke, as his favorite karaoke song is “Nothing Can Change the Love I Have for You” by the late soul singer and his favorite book is “Dream Boogie,” a biography of Cooke by Peter Guralnick.
When Byers was asked what was the most minor crime he ever committed, he guiltily said, “I stole some candy as a kid.” And with an answer that will no doubt make female fans swoon, when asked about the worst crime he ever committed, Byers said simply, “Love.”
