Atlanta – At the dear ‘old’ age of eight, little actor Trayce Malachi is already a profoundly wise Hollywood star. His character range in just the short span of a couple of years rivals the roles of veterans far past his age. Television fans anxiously anticipate his return as Jayden, the son of transgender character Cotton, played by Amiyah Scott, the grandson of Carlotta, played by Queen Latifah, and the nephew of Aunt Cassie, played by Brandy, on season three of Fox’s top-rated series, STAR. However, in addition to STAR, the young actor has been busy racking up credits like candy! As the third child of three amazing thespian siblings, collectively known as #THR33T (3T), Trayce is making his mark in the industry and it’s already legendary.
Trayce Malachi is the young brother of the acting twin duo, Talia Symone and Tari Ayana(Fox’s Sleepy Hollow). The eleven-year-old fraternal sisters initiated their journey as professional kid actors at the age of seven with their very first audition for roles on Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong. Their influence on their baby brother Trayce is obvious, as he caught the acting bug early on at age six. Born on December 28, the same birthdate as Denzel Washington, it’s almost as if acting was predestined for him. Managed by their single parenting mother, Ty Baker, and represented by BYSB Talent Agency, the young trio, based in Atlanta, has quickly established their presence in Hollywood.
In addition to breaking ground as the first young African American actor to play the child of a transgender person on television, Trayce’s film and television credits scale the breadth of roles as diverse as a preacher’s son to the son of an escaped slave. Trayce will make an appearance on CBS’s MacGyver, in the fifth episode of the upcoming third season, playing Calvin, who pretends to be the son of Wilt Bozer, portrayed by series regular Justin Hires. He made his major feature film debut this past April portraying Julian Pearson, son of Bishop Carlton Pearson, in the autobiographical Netflix original film, Come Sunday. Tag, the no-holds-barred comedy which hit theaters this past June, saw Trayce deliver a featured memorable moment in a crazy mall scene opposite film star, Jeremy Renner (The Avengers).
