For a good number of popular and celebrated individuals out there, attaining the celebrity status was quite instantaneous. It just happened and at times, when it was least expected. But for famous people like Joseph Sikora, it has been a gradual but steady progress. Identifying his liking for everything entertainment, Joseph came to terms with the decision to be part of the world of entertainment during the early days. His chosen profession was going to revolve around the industry, thus he started working towards that as early as he could.
Over the years, he has done well for himself as he has been able to gather a decent fan base and critical acclaim. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be out of place for one to assert that his best is yet to come. Here’s a profile of the American actor. It covers the basic facts of his biography and answers controversial questions about his personal life, including whether or not he is married to a wife or is gay.
Who is Joseph Sikora and Where is He From?
You probably know Joseph Sikora as Tommy Egan on Starz crime drama series, Power. What you may not know is that the man has come a long way. Before Power, he got notable attention for being Wayne Applewood in the 2003 HBO Films’ Normal. As the film bagged several awards and nominations, including 3 Golden Globe Awards, it pushed Sikora more into the limelight.
Sikora’s acting career can be traced to when he was still a kid. His earliest pronounced gig as an actor was presumably when he appeared with Michael Jordan on a TV commercial as a kid. Joseph made his professional acting debut in 1990; his Broadway debut came in 2006 and he has since portrayed several characters in films and more on television.
In order to thrive in his chosen profession, Joseph gained knowledge about acting from Illinois’ Piven Theater Workshop located in Evanston. To buttress this knowledge, he became a student of Chicago’s Columbia College. It was from this institution that he earned his degree in Theater.
The actor who is now a member of Shattered Globe Theatre was born on 27th June 1976 in Chicago, Illinois. Although we are yet to gather abundant details about Joseph Sikora’s family background, it has been ascertained that he is of Polish descent. It is also believed that he is of Dutch a Slovenian heritage. The American actor has two male siblings – Albin and Christopher. The picture posts that include himself with the two clearly shows he shares a strong bond with his brothers. As a matter of fact, Albin is most often mistaken as Joseph’s twin but the young actor has severally countered the wide assumption as he always clearly mention him as his younger brother.
Joseph Sikora’s Sexuality: Is The Actor Gay?
While many people can’t tell if the actor is married or not, it has been suggested among those who believe that Mr Sikora is indeed married and to a woman, that he is gay. As Joseph can’t be romantically linked to any partner of his gender, it was pretty difficult for us to figure out why it has been suspected and assumed that the man is sexually attracted to men.
Eventually, we got to uncover that the source of the suspicion has been his Tommy Egan role in the crime drama series, Power. Apparently, the makeup he wears for the role and his deportment while portraying the “Tommy” character is somewhat gayish for some viewers of the series. Having said that, there is no concrete evidence which can be used to substantiate the speculations about the actor being gay.
His Past Relationships Explored
You may come across Mr. Sikora disclosing that he has received an Ovation award for theatre in Los Angeles and a Joseph Jefferson award but it is highly unlikely to hear him talking about his love life, thanks to his decision to maintain a very low profile. Just as it is not known who his girlfriend was, it is difficult for one to authenticate if the man is married and who his wife is.
Joseph Sikora has been rumored to be involved in a number of relationships. Nonetheless, it is widely believed that the man got married in 2014. As the story goes, he married a makeup artist he met on set in 2010 while he was working on Terence Winter’s crime drama TV series, Boardwalk Empire. Nothing is known about the woman, not even her name, but his August 2018 Twitter post seems to confirm the claim of him being married.

Anyway, reports also have it that the 9 inches tall actor lives in Manhattan with his dog Ruby and that his mom, Barbara once expressed that the woman the actor made his life partner is a perfect fit for him. Assuming he is truly married as claimed, it is still unknown if the marriage has been blessed with kids.
The Sikora – Lala Anthony Relationship Rumor
Additionally, it is rumored that the American actor is in a relationship with Lala Anthony, a popular TV personality, actress, businesswoman, producer, and author best known for her role in the highly-rated show, Power which Sikora is also part of. The speculation was sparked off by the close ties the two appear to share in the drama series. However, while Sikora has confirmed being quite close with the female actress, he further explained that they only share a friendly relationship and nothing else.
While Anthony is yet to speak on the matter, her relationship update has it that she was married to Carmelo Anthony, a basketball player and together they have a son named Kiyan Carmelo Anthony. However, in April 2017, she filed for divorce from Carmelo but as of 2019, the actress revealed she is still together with her husband.
What About Kendra G?
Joseph must have been quite used to a growing rumor connecting him with various TV personalities. Aside from his rumored mutual ties with Lala Anthony, the actor was also reported to have a romantic relationship with radio host Kendra G. She was even rumored to be the actor’s wife and that he is trying to keep away from the public eye.
The speculation was, of course, sparked off by the actor’s Instagram post where he captioned Kendra as “My girl”.
