Joseph Sikora has thrived as Tommy Egan since the pilot episode of Power debuted in 2014. Quick-tempered and menacing, Tommy embraced the chaos and violence of his work while his best friend James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) tried to run from it.

Since then, Sikora hasn’t been seen as anyone other than Power. However, the actor says he loves being known for the character and he wouldn’t want it any other way.

“I take the role of Tommy and being always recognized as Tommy in some ways as a badge of honor,” he told XXL Magazine. “I think that the Black community specifically, calls out bullsh*t pretty quickly and if I didn’t have my “T’s” crossed and my “I’s” dotted and I didn’t bring truth to that character then the character would not have been accepted.
