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.
