Anthony Ramos      

Actor, Best Known for Role in "Hamilton"

Anthony Ramos is an American actor. In 2015, Ramos originated the roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton, Alexander Hamilton's eldest son, in the Broadway musical Hamilton. He also played the part of Justin in the short musical 21 Chump Street.

Starting in 2011, Ramos earned roles in a variety of regional and touring musical productions, including Sonny de la Vega in a 2012 production of In the Heights.

In 2014, Ramos performed in Heart and Lights at Radio City Music Hall, a dance show with the Rockettes which was canceled during previews. During rehearsals for Heart and Lights, Ramos auditioned for the off-Broadway production of Hamilton at The Public Theater.

After being cast in Hamilton, Ramos played Justin Laboy in Lin-Manuel Miranda's short musical 21 Chump Street, a one-time performance on June 7, 2014 that was recorded for NPR's This American Life.

Hamilton opened off-Broadway in early 2015, with Ramos originating the dual roles of John Laurens and Alexander Hamilton's eldest son Philip Hamilton. The musical moved to Broadway on July 13, 2015 in previews, and opened on August 6, 2015. Ramos left the production on November 20, 2016.

In September 2016, it was announced that Ramos had been cast in director Spike Lee's Netflix comedy-drama series She's Gotta Have It, in the role of Mars Blackmon.

Ramos appeared on the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton in 2015, in the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton.

He reunited with Lin-Manuel Miranda in October 2017 as one of the vocalists on Miranda's song "Almost Like Praying", a release to benefit Hurricane Maria victims.

On November 8, 2017, Ramos released two tracks, "Freedom" and "Common Ground", from his first solo EP, titled The Freedom EP. The release was produced by Will Wells, who had previously worked with Logic and Pentatonix. Inspired by the 2016 election, The Freedom EP was released on the first anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration, January 20, 2018. In addition to the previously released singles "Freedom", "Common Ground", and "Alright", the EP included two new songs, "When The Bell Tolls" and "PRayer".
