A post shared by JOHNNY SIBILLY (@johnnysibilly)Though Johnny Sibilly has been acting for a while now, the last year has seen him achieve new heights of success, finally giving the Cuban and Dominican actor the spotlight he has long deserved.His most recent role in Peacock’s Queer As Folk reboot has him playing Noah, a lawyer and former meth addict who struggles to find connection after losing a loved one in a mass shooting.The role could’ve easily devolved into trauma-drama and self-pity, but Sibilly renders Noah as a flawed but earnest man one who retains his sense of humor and sex appeal, even in the face of grief.

A post shared by JOHNNY SIBILLY (@johnnysibilly)Sibilly grants similar humanity to Wilson in the HBO Max dramedy series Hacks, which entered its second season in May and received 15 Emmy nominations last July.Wilson is a gay water inspector who falls in love with Marcus, the workaholic personal assistant of an aging comedienne staging a comeback.

When he encourages Marcus to break out of his shell and try activities like rock climbing, it’s not because he wants a fun boyfriend, it’s because he knows that the man he cares for has never really put himself first.Of course, it’s hardly surprising to see Sibilly portraying characters with such humanity.
