How tall is Power star Omari Hardwick?
Although he is most famous for his role as James “Ghost” St Patrick in Power, Hardwick was steadily building up his career prior to this.
He had roles in Kick-Ass, Sorry to Bother You and The Guardian as well as TV series Being Mary Jane, Dark Blue and Saved.
According to Celebrity Heights, actor Hardwick comes in at 5ft 8in or 174 cm.
Despite departing from Power, some fans have refused to accept his character Ghost is dead and gone with some believing the character has simply faked his own death and would show himself when the time was right.
Speaking to publication One in a recent interview, Hardwick reflected on playing Ghost, whom he said led audiences through the story of Power.
He described the show as a “slow burn” with the characters being developed over time and introduced gradually to viewers.
The star said: “At first, it’s about Ghost. That was very scary for me. That at first, it’s all about the character that everyone wanted me to play, that was just scary for me.
“It’s just something that I’m not used to. So, I wanted the other characters fleshed out.
“But in regards to being unapologetic, that was something that I really had to get over. Not in nature or in nurture, I wasn’t used to it being about me.
“That was the first job that I had that was asking me to be number one.”
Hardwick has some new projects lined up including Spell, Army of the Dead, D Is For Detroit and Die Enormous.
He is also a spoken word poet and recorded a piece for Power Book II: Ghost when the first spin-off series from the Starz franchise first premiered in September.
Power Book II may be subtitled with his name, but Ghost is only there in spirit with the show now following son Tariq St Patrick (played by Michael Rainey Jr).
Although Ghost isn’t physically there, he certainly casts a long shadow over the show with Tariq starting to unwittingly resemble his father more and more over time.
The star also describes himself as an artist and activist and when he’s not in front of the camera, Hardwick is hosting the Poetics Podcast.
Hardwick is married to Jennifer Pfautch with the pair tying the knot in 2012.
They have two children together and the former publicist has often been credited as helping Hardwick land his role in Power thanks to the strength of her prayers and faith.
She previously told Ebony in 2018: “I wouldn’t say I convinced him to take the role [in Power], per se.
“His soul knew it was time to embrace what God had for him career wise, and in order to do that, the role of Ghost was the next step in that process.
She added: “I honestly said very little; just enough to remind him of his call and his purpose.”
