Back in April we all lost the loved and celebrated Charlie Murphy. Before his shocking passing; Charlie was staying busy and found himself in season 4 of ‘Power’ on Starz. As the upcoming season gets closer to it’s premiere; show lead Omari Harwick spoke with TheBoomBox about working with Charlie. While sharing that he didn’t realize how sick Charlie was; he went on to mention that he learned more on humility while working with him.
Thankful for the opportunity to work with the Brooklyn-born actor, Hardwick went on to share what he learned from Murphy – and empathized with Murphy working to get from under the shadow of his superstar little brother, legendary actor Eddie Murphy. “I don’t think I’m a stranger to being a grounded human being, but he was one that had been through so much,” he said. “I was never one to be walking down the street and be called Jamil or Malik’s brother – Malik and Jamil go through [life] being called Omari’s brother. Charlie’s gone through being called Eddie’s brother. So when he’s away from the producers and the other actors – where his propensity to poke out his chest is a little more prevalent – I think with me, he went through [a], ‘Man, I’ve [always] been the other guy. My brother’s Eddie.’ So he shared so much of that and how tough that was – with people going, ‘Oh, you’re just on because you’re Eddie’s brother’ – [from] that I think I took away [to] remain as humble as you possibly can because as much as someone’s hot in this industry is as quick as they can be not. So, I think he just showed a level of humility I just thought was incredible.”“It’s pretty amazing that I got to work with him.”
