Interview: Daveed Diggs on his Emmy nomination for ‘Hamilton’ and juggling multiple projects at the same time [VIDEO]
Could Daveed Diggs be working on any more TV shows at the moment? He earned his first Emmy nomination for the filmed version of the stage musical of Hamilton that already earned him a Tony Award. He also starred in Showtime’s limited series The Good Lord Bird, in TNT’s sci-fi blockbuster Snowpiercer, and he lends his voice to Apple TV+’s Central Park. On top of that, he served as the co-creator of Starz’s recently-wrapped Blindspotting.
We had the chance to catch up with Diggs on the many different projects that have attracted him and his enthusiasm for each, including Amazon Prime Video’s mesmerizing animated series Undone and the music video Puppy for Hanukkah. We also discussed what he’s been watching when he’s not the one in front of the camera.
Daveed Diggs is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for Hamilton, which is available to stream on Disney+.
