"Truth is: I was hesitant to say yes to this show initially."
Could you imagine tuning into Power on Sunday nights and seeing a face other than Omari Hardwick's portraying lead character Ghost? This was almost a reality, but thankfully the actor's wife, Jae Hardwick, whom he married in 2012, prayed for her husband's direction to pursue the role and it lead him to it.
On Instagram, Hardwick revealed his own truth about the life-changing role.
"Truth is: I was hesitant to say yes to this show initially," he wrote in a caption underneath a photo of himself outside the Starz hit show's fictional nightclub, Truth.
"Perhaps it truly was an example of what it looks like when we run from our call, in this case...mine-to be of high stature in this business. I was cool with the decade of work being 1 where my craft & presence played it's part. Between the 45 days of prayer from a one @mrsjaeh asking God to "help me embrace my Power & Dominion" (yes, that word: power), & sitting down even a month after THAT with a one @ckagbohofficial & then talking to a one @50cent .....God had answered that prayer & spoke to me."
