Behind The Cover: Omari Hardwick Knows His Power and Owns It

Omari Hardwick explains how he and his Power character, Ghost, are similar and different at the same time.

There’s something about Omari Hardwick’s power–from his killer good looks and captivating smile to his mesmerizing, yet often conflicted character on summer hit series Power on STARZ–he’s a man on a mission.

While the actor knows his series persona is drastically different in some ways than his own, he’s aware of that they are more alike than it would seem.

“I think the similarities between Omari and Ghost would be that of passion and underneath that would be ambitious and very goal-oriented and both from humble beginnings,” he told ESSENCE. “I try to wake up every day and play him with a clean heart. I think that Ghost and Omari at times are both very misunderstood individuals.”
