On the Empire episode “Be True,” while Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray) finds himself falling for Marisol, the lead singer of his girl group, his big brother Andre (Trai Byers) attempts to “rid his soul of past sins.” Andre can’t do it on his own so he turns to Reverend LC Price who baptizes Andre in church. The whole Lyon family comes to witness the rite.
Rev. LC Price is portrayed by Charles Malik Whitfield. The Bronx native is best known for his roles on Tyler Perry’s nighttime soap opera If Loving You Is Wrong (Lushion), The Guardian (James Mooney), and Supernatural (FBI Agent Victor Henriksen). But Whitfield’s proudest professional moment was being nominated for an NAACP Image Award for his portrayal of Otis Williams in the Emmy-winning TV mini-series The Temptations. Empire airs Wednesdays at 9pm on FOX.
