For a good number of the 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 process.
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 of his life. 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, his personal life and other facts about him.
Joseph Sikora Bio, Age and Ethnicity
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.
We traced Sikora’s acting career 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 in television.
In order to thrive in his chosen profession, Joseph gathered 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 company member with 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 an Slovenian heritage.
Wife or Girlfriend, Is He Married?
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 encounter him talking about his love life. 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.
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 the actor is said to be married to, not even her name.
Anyway, reports have it that the couple lives together in Manhattan with their dog Ruby and, that Joseph’s 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. Joseph is super-serious about keeping one’s private life private.
Is Mr. Sikora 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 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.
Joseph Sikora’s Height
If you have been wondering how tall the actor is, you don’t have to make guesses about that anymore, here’s the fact – Joseph Sikora is nine (9) inches taller than five (5) feet. Yeah, he is 1.8 meters tall.
