Julian Walker is in a delightful mood today. Fresh off the season four premiere of BET’s Being Mary Jane, Walker, who plays Ty in the network’s signature drama, is beaming with positivity and concentrated ambition that’s nothing short of contagious. For Walker, these are the days of harvest.

“Everything’s going really good,” Walker says amid chit-chat about his third high-profile appearance on screen. “I’m definitely blessed.”

Blessings seem to be a recurring affair in Walker’s career having worked with some of the industry’s most talented in such a short period of time. This go-round Walker finds himself posing as hairstylist to none other than the series’ title character, Mary Jane, played by Gabrielle Union.

“From the outside looking in, Ty is a young, successful black man,” he says. “He’s in New York doing what he loves, and telling everybody’s business.”

Walker says working with Union was a blast. In between takes the seasoned actress asked him to sing for the cast and crew and graciously offered a few pointers that have made quite the impression.

“She gave me some great advice,” he says. “She told me to always be ready, and that when I walk into a room I should own it.”

Those nuggets of wisdom are carrying Walker forward as he continues to pursue his passion of acting.

“I’m excited about this year,” he says. “I’m really building myself and making sure I’m prepared mentally. You have to believe in yourself, speak words of affirmation, and know that you can make all your dreams a reality. That’s what I’m doing.”

Catch an all-new episode of Being Mary Jane tonight at 10/9c!
