Friday Morning Man: Conrad Ricamora!
I fell in love with How To Get Away With Murder during its first season and the biggest reason is Oliver Hampton who is played by the adorable Conrad Ricamora.
From the first scene he was in with Jack Falahee (Connor) on the first episode of season one, I wanted to basically date Oliver, become engaged, get married and live happily ever after.
Conrad, 38, is openly gay in real life and HTGAWM is his first TV role. He has just one film credit (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby in 2006) as he has appeared mostly on stage.
He performed the role of Ninoy Aquino in the 2013 Off-Broadway musical, Here Lies Love and for his efforts won a Theatre World Award and was nominated for Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical.
This year, he has been on Broadway as Lun Tha, one of the pair of secret lovers in Lincoln Center Theater’s 2015 revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I.
