Daveed Diggs is an American actor, rapper and singer. He is the vocalist of the experimental hip-hop group ‘clipping.’, and in 2015 originated the roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the musical Hamilton, for which he won both a Grammy Award and Tony Award. Since leaving Hamilton in 2016, he has had a recurring role on the television series Black-ish and co-starred in the film Wonder.
Diggs performed in a lot of experimental theater early on, most notably when he was on the national tour for Marc Bamuthi Joseph's choreopoem, Word Becomes Flesh, about a nine-month pregnancy, through the eyes of a young, single father. Aside from his experimental work, he frequently performed in regional Shakespeare productions.
Lin-Manuel Miranda later invited Diggs to read and hear early versions of Hamilton. Diggs was impressed by Miranda's demos and obvious passion for the project and saw that the concept was a perceptive use of the rap-musical medium. He became part of the musical and played the roles of Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette off-Broadway in 2015, continuing with the roles when the show was moved to Broadway later in the year. For his performance, Diggs won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, as well as a 2016 Grammy Award for the cast album.
Diggs played his final performance in the show on July 15, 2016.
Daveed is also an accomplished hip-hop artist and musician. He is MC of the Los Angeles experimental hip-hop group ‘clipping.’ The group released their debut album on Sub Pop in 2014.
Diggs has also made appearances on multiple television shows including Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Law & Order: SVU, The Get Down and Black-ish. He is executive producer for a new ABC show called The Mayor.
