Aubrey Omari Joseph (born November 26, 1997)[1][2] is an American rapper and actor best known for his portrayal as Tyrone Johnson / Cloak in Freeform's Cloak & Dagger.

Career[edit]

Aubrey started acting on the stage, portraying Simba in the Broadway musical The Lion King, a role he alternated with Judah Bellamy.[3] Aubrey has his first major, starring role after being cast in January 2017 as Tyrone Johnson / Cloak, one of the lead characters, in the Marvel's Cloak & Dagger television series. The show, set within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, is broadcast on Freeform network, and is jointly produced by Freeform, ABC Studios, and Marvel Television and is based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name.[4][5] Aubrey felt his casting was coincidental. "At the time that I got the audition, I was in the middle of trying to watch season one of Luke Cage, so it was crazy just how ironic everything was at that moment."[6]

Aubrey Joseph is the middle child of three boys.[6]
