Back To One

Actor, rapper, writer, producer, Daveed Diggs loves wearing many hats, often at the same time. “Hamilton” made him a star. He won a Tony for it. Now he’s nominated for an Emmy for his incredible work in the filmed version of the musical. In this episode, he talks about his need to find the character somewhere in his body, and why attending editing sessions for his new show “Blindspotting” on breaks from acting in the television series “Snowpiercer” was the opposite of overwhelming. He paints us a picture of his creative life in the lead-up to the life-changing experience of “Hamilton,” and the times, toward the end of his run, where it was hard to find the required energy. Plus I ask him about the time I watched him make a whole quiche from scratch, and MUCH more! Follow BACK TO ONE on Instagram

In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast

Daveed Diggs is best known for his Tony Award–winning portrayals of Marquis de Lafayette and President Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” released last year as a TV film on Disney+ and garnering Daveed a SAG Award nomination. Here, the singer-rapper-songwriter and actor-writer-producer reveals much of his creative philosophy to Backstage—a publication he used to read in the early, blissfully uncertain days of his career. His advice: “Be fully creative and really experiment with things, and then learn what your process is.”Born in Oakland, California, and studying theater at Brown University, Daveed joined early versions of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” after scraping by with regional stage gigs and Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s choreopoem “Word Becomes Flesh.” He’s collaborated with an eclectic array of musicians, including his experimental hip-hop group Clipping, and writer-performer Rafael Casal, with whom he wrote, produced, and co-starred in the award-winning 2018 film “Blindspotting.” Daveed also leads TNT’s dystopian drama “Snowpiercer” and this year starred as Frederick Douglass on Showtime’s miniseries “The Good Lord Bird” and in Disney’s “Soul.” He’s appeared on ABC’s “Black-ish,” Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and AppleTV+’s animated “Central Park,” and will next be seen in the live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid.” Check out Daveed answering our Backstage 5 actor questionniare here: https://bit.ly/3r0oeuCAlso joining Jack on this episode is Elyse Roth, Backstage’s senior editor, to discuss the takeaways from the 2021 Oscar nominations: https://bit.ly/2P26GB5---Backstage has been the #1 resource for actors and talent-seekers for 60 years.
