Who is Anthony Ramos’ fiancée?
Anthony Ramos’ fiancée, Jasmine Cephas Jones, is also an actress and Grammy-winning singer like Ramos. She’s perhaps most known for originating the roles of Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds in Lin Manuel Miranda‘s Hamilton musical, but Cephas Jones also has a handful of screen credits under her belt. These include roles in Mistress America, Unforgettable, Dog Days, Blindspotting, Odd Mom Out, Fairfield, Blue Bloods, Titus, Midnight, Texas, and #FreeRayshawn, for which she won a Primetime Emmy award in 2020.
How did Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones meet?
Ramos and Cephas Jones met during rehearsals for the Off-Broadway production of Hamilton at The Public Theatre in 2014. Ramos played the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton, whereas Cephas Jones took on the aforementioned roles of Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds.
Show creator Lin Manuel Miranda noticed early on how Ramos kept “sneaking glances” at Cephas Jones during rehearsals, and well, the rest is history. It seems the pair made things official sometime around Valentines Day in 2015, as Ramos celebrated their 2-year anniversary on Feb. 15, 2017.
