2. Jamael Westman
Play • 58 min

What's his name, man? In this episode, host Giles Terera is joined by Alexander Hamilton himself: Jamael Westman, who played Hamilton opposite Giles' Aaron Burr in the original London cast. Tune in to hear about how Jam's lifelong love of rap gave him his way into the show, important things to think about when auditioning, and confirmation that Jam is totally, 100% fine that Giles won the Olivier Award instead of him (honest).

Hamilton and Me: An Actor's Journal by Giles Terera – his account of researching, rehearsing and performing as Aaron Burr in the original London production of smash-hit musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda – is published on 1 July by Nick Hern Books.
