US actor, singer and songwriter Anthony Ramos is set to appear in The Bad Guys, an animated crime comedy directed by Pierre Perifel, in April.
A respected force in theatre, he received a 2021 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series or Movie in his performance in the 2020 Disney+ production of Hamilton. Last year, he also appeared in Jon M Chu’s critically acclaimed musical drama film In the Heights.
He is also a new ambassador for luxury luggage brand Tumi’s “Life in Forward Motion” campaign, joining South Korean footballer Son Heung-min, UK-based F1 driver Lando Norris and US singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams.
In an exclusive interview with Tatler, the actor tells us what we can look forward to from him this year.
What has kept you busy over the past year, and what can we look forward to you next?
[In 2021] I had In the Heights release, and my second album Love & Lies came out. I shot Transformers: Rise of the Beasts [to be released June 9, 2023].
[This year] I have been working on my new album and will start promoting the release of the upcoming animated Dreamworks film Bad Guys [to be released April 22, 2022] before I start working on Ironheart for Marvel.
Have you been able to travel?
I shot Transformers in Montreal and Peru, both locations that I loved. I have been recording in Miami, New York City and Los Angeles.
Every few weeks, I also make sure I get to Puerto Rico—my favourite spot of them all.
