played by Omari Hardwick
Character Bio Actor Bio

The brilliant and debonair owner of Truth nightclub, Ghost is also one of the largest drug distributors in New York City. Along with his best friend Tommy, he created his drug empire from nothing, and while the club is a front to wash money, it’s also much more to Ghost: it’s his way out of the drug game and into a legitimate business. Truth holds the key to the life he desires and the status he believes he deserves. Ghost gets what he wants, but is a legit life the one thing out of his reach?

Omari Hardwick has made a name for himself in the entertainment industry with his passion, dedication, and undeniable, natural talent. Hardwick's TV credits include “Verses and Flow” as well as BET’s award-winning series “Being Mary Jane.” His film credits include Kick-Ass, The Guardian, Beauty Shop, Gridiron and The A-Team. Most recently, Omari can be seen as the lead of the new Starz series “Power.”

Born Omari Latif Hardwick, Omari grew up in Decatur, Georgia. By the age of 14, Hardwick was writing poetry on a regular basis, a passion he would carry with him into adulthood. In high school, he excelled at basketball, baseball, and football, and went on to play football at the University of Georgia. Although a star on the field, Hardwick never gave up his passion for acting, and minored in theatre in college. After graduation, Hardwick relocated to San Diego for a spot on the San Diego Chargers (NFL) however a knee injury cut his football career short. He then decided to revisit his original passion for acting, and moved to New York to study his craft more extensively. He moved to Los Angeles in 2000, and had his first big break in 2003, when he was cast in his first major role as a series regular in Spike Lee's “Sucker Free City.”

In addition to acting, Hardwick is a founding member of Plan B Inc. Theater Group, and a co-founder of Los Angeles Actor's Lounge. He has big plans for his production company, Bravelife, in 2010 as well, and plans on expanding the company. Hardwick also continues to work on his poetry, and has written over 4,000 poems.

Character Bio Actor Bio

Mercurial, extreme, wounded, and loyal to a fault, Tommy and Ghost grew up together like brothers. They began the drug business together, but for Tommy, it’s not a means to an end – it is the end itself. The money, power, control, and achievement are addictive, as is the bond he has with Ghost and Ghost’s family – a surrogate for the love Tommy never had growing up. Ghost and the business mean everything to Tommy, and he won’t let anything come between him and them.

Joseph Sikora has been establishing himself as an actor who tackles the complexities of both the internal and external life of a character through his ability to speak with any accent and morph into different lives.

Ever-ambitious, Holly is a waitress at Truth, the club Ghost and Tommy own. As she and Tommy develop a charged relationship, she encourages him to seek the kind of power and control she wants as well - priming them both for ascension.

Lucy Walters grew up in Texas, where she trained as a classical violinist from the age of 4. After a taste of the stage singing in the children’s chorus with the Houston Grand Opera, she became interested in musical theater and then straight theater. Lucy attended the University of Texas at Austin, where she double majored in Theater and Dance and a Liberal Arts Honors degree called Plan II with a focus on Economics. She graduated summa cum laude and was awarded the Marcia Gay Harden Theater scholarship.

Lucy Walters then moved to NYC and gained notoriety as the Woman on the Subway in Steve McQueen's film Shame (with Michael Fassbender).

Lucy has appeared on “Bones,” “The Good Wife,” “666 Park Avenue,” “Do No Harm,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” “Smash,” “White Collar,” “Army Wives,” “Blue Bloods,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Lipstick Jungle.”

When not acting or hustling for her next acting job, Lucy finds joy in making music with her friends, writing, and continually self-educating herself. She’s one of 4 siblings--a sister (a teacher) in Harlem, and two brothers still in school in Texas.

Josh Kantos

Character Bio Actor Bio

An experienced nightclub manager with all the right lists, contacts, and know-how, he also comes with a sordid history. He was persona non-grata in the club world until Ghost found him and brought him into Truth.

After graduating with a BA in Drama from Binghamton University in NY, studying under Julliard professor Gene Lesser, Adam moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career doing what he loves most: acting in film and television. Before landing the dynamic role of Joshua Kantos on the STARZ show “Power,” which ironically brought him back to his place of origin, NY, Adam guest starred on shows such as “CSI: NY”, "Ironside," “NCIS”, “NCIS: LA”, to name a few. He also can be seen in the independent films Is It Just Me?, Resurrection County, and Wannabe. He recently associate produced and was the star of the feature film Find Me, which debuted at the Hollywood Film Festival. He completed filming on the musical comedy Waiting in the Wings and the action thriller Misirlou in early 2013. He is also a big fan of the theater, and credits his time on stage in well received plays such as the musical “Just In Love” and the Theatricum Botanicum’s production of “Measure of Measure” and the drama “The Women of Lockerbie,” as the reasons for staying sharp and prepared as an actor. In addition to acting, Adam has previously volunteered at Cedars-Sinai Medical center in the children's cancer ward.

About

Power

A STARZ Original Series

From Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh ("The Good Wife") comes "Power", a visionary crime drama set in two different worlds – the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade.

James “Ghost” St. Patrick has it all: a beautiful wife, a gorgeous Manhattan penthouse, and the hottest, up-and-coming new nightclub in New York. His club, Truth, caters to the elite: the famous and infamous boldface names that run the city that never sleeps. As its success grows, so do Ghost’s plans to build an empire. However, Truth hides an ugly reality. It’s a front for Ghost’s criminal underworld; a lucrative drug network, serving only the wealthy and powerful.

As Ghost is seduced by the prospect of a legitimate life, everything precious to him becomes unknowingly threatened. Once you’re in, can you ever get out?
