|Young Lucious Lyon Jeremy Carver|
Jeremy Carver plays young Lucious Lyon on Empire's third season. Triston Gandy played the character when he was 13-years-old and Carver will pick up where he left off. Carver will show fans of the series how Dwight Walker used his amazing voice and bad boy swag to steal young Loretha Lyon's heart.
Young Cookie will be played by actress, Ajiona Alexus. Unlike Carver, Alexus has years of acting experience. Empire is Jeremy's first major role. You have to love Lee Daniels for creating opportunities for young entertainers. Bryshere Y. Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon, is another actor who lacked experience.
|Who Plays Young Lucious On Empire? Jeremy Carver|
Many directors refuse to give new talent an opportunity because of the extra time that is required. That's not the case with Lee Daniels. The award-winning producer creates some of his best work with unknown actors. Bryshere isn't the only cast member who lacked acting experience. Trai Byers, Grace Gealey and Kaitlin Doubleday were also unknown actors who wouldn't have landed their roles if it wasn't for Daniels.
While Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson were award-winning actors before the show, Empire took their careers to another level. We can't wait to see how the series impact Jeremy's career!
