Anthony Ramos auditioned for the Broadway show “In The Heights” back when he was 19 and didn’t get the part. Now, he is the star of the highly anticipated musical film adaptation. “I was hurt, man, when I didn’t get the part,” he told Access Hollywood at the film’s New York City premiere on Wednesday. “But look 10 years later I’m here talking to you on the red carpet of the premiere of the movie. I think it’s a testament like don’t give up on your dream.” Anthony says he is taking his newfound fame “a moment at a time” and reminisced on how his life has changed since his role in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway show “Hamilton.” The actor, who is engaged to fellow Broadway star Jasmine Cephas Jones, says they are working on their wedding plans! “In The Heights” is in theaters and Streaming on HBO Max now.
