Joseph Sikora is one of those actors who had to grind for a long time before making it to the top. Sikora made his acting debut in 1990 in the television series The New Adam – 12. In the 1990s, he appeared in shows and films such as Early Edition, Rudy, and My Best Friend’s wedding.
After the turn of the century, he appeared in shows such as ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Without a Trace, CSI: Miami, and Prison Break. He gained global recognition when he landed the role of Tommy Egan in the series, Power, alongside stars such as Omari Hardwick and 50 Cent.
He reportedly got married to his former make-up artist in secret in 2014
Reports suggest that Joseph got married secretly in 2014. He reportedly got married to a make-up artist that he had dated for a few years. Joseph and this lady met on the set of the crime-drama Boardwalk empires.
The reports also say that Sikora lives with his wife in Manhattan. Joseph confirmed that he is married via a Twitter photo posted On 23rd August 2018 alongside the following caption;
“So, me and the wife took the 7 bus from Florence to Fiesole, just outside the city to the church of San Francesco and this nice fella, @imoles hook me up with some nice grappa and where to go in Firenze (Florence). Thanks man.
At the beginning of the tweet, he mentioned that he was traveling with ‘the wife’. Incredibly, he has never been spotted together with his wife for over six years of marriage.
Joseph stated that his relationship with his wife helped him deal with his anger issues
Joseph Sikora almost never got the role of Tommy in Power as he missed the first round of auditions to attend his wedding. Sikora’s decision showed how much he values his wife and her impact on his life.
Sikora told Big Boy TV that his wife almost left him due to his anger management issues. Thanks to his wife, Joseph attended therapy and got better at managing his anger. Joseph explained:
“She was like, ‘Alright, if you go to therapy, I’ll stay with you.’ [Therapy] worked for me. I was blaming a lot of stuff on people rather than taking responsibility for myself and my life. It also proved somebody cared enough about me to offer this way out and it worked.”
Joseph’s wife transformed Sikora’s personal and professional life. The relationship made him realize that there was something more important than acting. “Then, when I found my wife, I finally found for the first time something I loved more than acting and then all of these jobs came,” he said. “She was a blessing, she’s a good person.”
He was rumored to be in a relationship with Lala Anthony
Joseph and Lala play each other’s love interest on the hit show, Power. They have a complicated relationship on the show, and it has led some fans to speculate that the couple is in a relationship in real life. Joseph and Lala make a cute couple, but they are only friends.
Sikora clarified in an interview with Page Six; “I think that we have mutual admiration for each other. We built up a friendly relationship, so then you are put into a mock sexual relationship. Obviously, no private parts are being put near each other. But we really are kissing and touching so it’s a luxury to do it with somebody you like and respect.”
He was rumored to be dating Kendra G
Joseph was at some point rumored to be dating Radio Host, Kendra G. The rumors started when Joseph posted an Instagram photo of the couple with the caption; “Me and my girl @kendragmedia here in Atlanta for Ludafest weekend! @ludacris @lala Kendra is my girl, my friend and every now and again my “wife!” She’s got my back. Let turn this up tonight!!”
The post led to speculation that Kendra was the wife that Joseph tries so hard to hide from the public. However, it later turned out that it was just a friendly post from Joseph.
Joseph was also involved in gay rumors.
Such rumors should be enough to show you how well Joseph has guarded his private life. The rumors came from the fact that Joseph hasn’t been linked with a woman throughout his professional career.
Fans also suggested that his mode of dressing pointed to him being gay. They said that his portrayal of his role in Power seemed gay. Joseph didn’t respond to these rumors, and it left some fans uncertain about his sexual orientation.
Sikora has previously stated that he wouldn’t shy away from playing a gay role in film or series.
