“Empire’s” Grace Byers is headed to “The
Gifted.”

Grace is set to play a new character called Reeva, described
as a “smart, charming, authoritative, elegant, beautiful woman who is
ruthless in her efforts to fight for her people,” according to Fox.

“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,” read a character description from the network.
