Daveed Diggs originated the roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the Tony, Grammy and Pulitzer-winning play “Hamilton.” And while the “Snowpiercer” star hasn’t played the roles since 2016, Diggs says fans still share their love for the production with him.
“There’s something fundamental about the story and the way of telling the story that, for a lot of people, allows them, gives them some sort of foundational level of courage or willingness to try something. And that’s cool. That doesn’t happen very often,” Diggs says on the “Variety After-Show.”
“Hamilton” will hit Disney Plus on July 3.
