Hamilton is now streaming on Disney+ and there’s a super cute behind-the-scenes love story that you might not know about!
Anthony originated the dual roles of John Laurens / Philip Hamilton while Jasmine originated the dual roles of Peggy Schuyler / Maria Reynolds.
After the couple got engaged in January 2019, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted about the first day they met. He said that at the first table read for Hamilton‘s off-Broadway run in 2015, Anthony kept “sneaking glances at our newest cast member, Jasmine.”
While posting about their engagement last year, Jasmine wrote on Instagram, “I love you beyond words and am so excited to continue this awesome journey with you.” Anthony said, “Thank you for saying yes to writing stories together for the rest of our lives. I’m honored and Blessed to marry you. LEGOOO.”
Late last year, Anthony gave Vogue an update on the wedding planning, which was still in the early stage. “Jasmine and I both love music, so the DJ’s gotta be on point,” he said. “I want people sweating, suit jackets off, chancletas on.”
You might also recognize Anthony from his work in the movie A Star Is Born and he’s starring in the upcoming film adaptation of In The Heights. Jasmine has stared in the movie Blindspotting and the HBO series Mrs. Fletcher.
