The pair have been dating since January 2016.
Rapp created the role of Mark in Broadway’s Rent, a part he reprised in the 2005 film adaptation and has often revisited for touring productions and concert engagements. Prior to his rise to fame in that role, Rapp had been a child actor on Broadway, making his debut in The Little Prince and the Aviator in 1982. He then played Freddy in Broadway’s Precious Sons in 1986, for which he earned a Drama Desk nomination. He was a member of the original cast of John Guare’s Six Degrees of Separation.
Since Rent, Rapp originated the role of Charlie Brown in the 1999 revival of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and created the role of Lucas in If/Then, opposite his Rent co-star Idina Menzel. Rapp now stars on the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery as Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets.
