How can I inflate a static array resource in Android the Scala way?

I wonder what's the scala way to access an array as a TypedResources...

I tried the following:

class PersonActivity extends AppCompatActivity with TypedFindView {

  implicit val context = this

  lazy val persons = TR.array.persons
  // lazy val persons = TR.array.persons.value
  lazy val personSearchEngine = new PersonSearchEngine(persons) // expects a Seq[String]
  // lazy val personSearchEngine = new PersonSearchEngine(getResources.getStringArray(TR.array.persons.resid)

The last line that is uncommented forces me to implement findViewById[V <: View](id: Int). What's the scala way to do it?
