Tony Nominated Actress & Singer Known for "Hamilton"

Phillipa Soo is best known for originating the role of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton in Broadway’s critically acclaimed show “Hamilton,” which she joined shortly after its inception. The role garnered her the Lucille Lortel Award in 2015 for Lead Actress in a Musical during the show's off-broadway, sold-out run at The Public Theater as well as earning her a 2016 Tony Award nomination. In 2021, she received a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie nomination for her performance in the Disney+ live stage recording of "Hamilton" which was released in 2020.

Soo made her feature film debut in Fabien Constant’s HERE AND NOW, opposite Sarah Jessica Parker and will next be seen in the Selena Gomez-produced BROKEN HEART GALLERY opposite Geraldine Viswanathan. She also voiced the lead roles in two upcoming animated features, Netflix's "Over the Moon" and Disney’s “The One and Only Ivan.”

On the small screen, she recently wrapped a series regular role in Conan O’Brien’s pilot GUMSHOE for HBO Max. She was previously a series regular on the CBS show, THE CODE. Other TV credits include NBC’s SMASH.

In 2018, she co-starred on Broadway opposite Uma Thurman in the play “The Parisian Woman,” and in 2017, Soo played the title role in the Broadway musical “Amelie,” based on the Academy Award-winning 2001 French film, Amelie.

Soo also originated the role of ‘Natasha Rostova’ in the 2012 Ars Nova production of Dave Malloy's “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.”

She is a graduate of the Juilliard School Drama Division (Group 41).
