Power Book 3 cast: Who will play young Tommy Egan in Raising Kanan?
Power Book II: Ghost: A look at the dramatic finale
Power Book III: Raising Kanan is going to be the second spin-off show to be released, following Power Book II: Ghost’s premiere last year. Unlike the other planned series to come from the original Starz drama, Raising Kanan will be a prequel. This means fans will get to learn more about the origins of Kanan Stark (played by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) and some of the other main characters from the drama.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from the Power franchise.
Kanan was one of James “Ghost” St Patrick’s (Omari Hardwick) most dangerous enemies in the Power series as the pair had known one another since their school days.
This meant not only did they know each other inside out, they knew each other’s secrets which they could reveal at any moment.
Kanan may have been killed off in series five but there is still plenty to find out about the violent drug dealer as Power Book III: Raising Kanan will go back to the 1990s.
While Raising Kanan is primarily about the titular character, fans are going to also learn a lot more about Ghost and Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) and how they got involved in the drug underworld.

A teaser clip was shown following the end of Power Book II which transported fans to 1996.

This short clip has got fans wondering who are the actors behind the Power star’s younger counterparts.
So who is the actor portraying Tommy Egan before he became a thug of the streets in New York?
