The Youngest Lyon Gets An Ad Campaign
From playing Hakeem Lyon on the hit show “Empire,” to touring the country, Bryshere “Yazz” Grey is killing it in 2016. So along with the title of musician and actor, he can now add model and brand ambassador to his resume. Check out Yazz as the new brand ambassador for True Religion’s “This Is True Campaign.” Grey told BET that he was very excited to be representing the company.
“True Religion was the perfect brand for me to collaborate with. Not only do I like their clothes, I also like their message of having a positive attitude, focusing on your dreams and being yourself,” Yazz also told BET. This is a new for Grey, as this is the first time he’s done something like this. Grey is sharing the campaign with Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook and Ireland Baldwin.
Grey also spoke of the rest of his career, as in working on Empire and how it is working with the cast. Being that this was his first real acting job, and the show was automatically a hit, who could complain? Grey states “this was my first acting gig and it’s been really amazing working with [Taraji and Terrence] and the other actors and directors. We work really long hours and it’s taught me to be a professional, grow as an artist and be a better listener. Listening to the people around you is so important as an actor.”
We’re definitely proud of Bryshere and can’t wait to see what else comes for him, especially in the new year. Don’t forget to catch Empire Wednesday’s on Fox and his new film on BET, The New Edition Story in January!
