He will be serving as a creative producer for Lionsgate adaptation of The KingKiller Chronicle and is producing 11 songs for upcoming Sony Pictures Animation Vivo. He is expected to voice Fenton Crackshell/Gizmoduck in the 2017 reboot DuckTales and may be producing a live action remake of The Little Mermaid! So basically, our original Alexander Hamilton has been going non-stop.
Leslie Odom Jr - Aaron Burr Last show: July 9, 2016 Odom Jr, our favourite theatre villain, has recently filmed Murder On The Orient Express by director Kenneth Branagh alongside an impressive cast. The film is scheduled for release on November 10, 2017, and is notable for being Odom Jr's second feature film. He released new album Simply Christmas which made it to the top 50 of Billboard's 200. And, perhaps most impressively, has recently welcomed new baby daughter Lucy into the world. So cute!

Phillipa Soo - Eliza Schuyler Hamilton Last show: July 9, 2016 Phillipa Soo broke hearts as Eliza and since departing has gone on to star in Broadway show Amélie from March 2017 - May 2017. The new musical was based on 2001 rom-com film of the same name and opened to mixed reviews. Alongside this Soo also sang for Disney's Moana alongside old co-star Lin-Manuel. Unfortunately, the song ultimately didn't make it into the movie but it does remain on the soundtrack. Great to see the cast remain friends!
Renee Elise Goldsberry - Angelica Schuyler Last show: September 3, 2016 Our favourite sassy sister has been making waves in TV world since departing the Richard Rogers theatre. She guest-starred in The Get Down in 2017 and is set to star in upcoming series Altered Carbon based on 2002 novel of the same name for Netflix. Goldsberry played the titular role in the television film The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks that aired on HBO in April. And was also joined by fellow Hamilton actress' Phillipa Soo and Jasmine Cephas-Jones in singing America the Beautiful at the 2017 Superbowl. Girl power.

Christopher Jackson - George Washington Last show: November 13, 2016 Christopher Jackson taught us how to say goodbye when he said an emotional farewell, but it wasn't for long. Almost immediately upon leaving, we were able to catch his beautiful harmonies when Moana was released. He is the third Hamilton cast member who was involved in the project! Jackson is also currently starring in TV series Bull as fashion stylist Chuck Palmer. A second season is set to premiere in September this year on CBS so it isn't long till we can start getting our fix of him once more!
Okieriete Onaodowan - Hercules Mulligan/James Madison Last show: December 24, 2016 He needs no introduction. He played the one and only Hercules Mulligan and, of course, James Madison. He was the last of the original cast to leave the show because he was just so damn good in it. Since leaving Onaodowan has had a role in Girls and is the third cast member to have starred in The Get Down. Okieriete Onaodowan has also very recently returned to Broadway, taking on the role of Pierre in musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 and setting the theatre world on fire.

Jasmine Cephas-Jones - Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds Last show: December 8, 2016 Famed for her starring moment during hit song The Schuyler Sisters the "and, Peggy" actress has been making waves since taking her leave. She has worked with co-star Daveed Diggs' theatre in verse workshop, taken part in multiple storytelling workshops and spoken openly about female empowerment with the Powerful Foundation. She has kept up her singing and, as mentioned above, sang at the 2017 Superbowl to massive crowds. Also, adorably, Cephas-Jones is dating co-star Anthony Ramos, making for one super cute couple.
#ShakeAndBake It's time. This is me as Pierre (Don't judge the face, it was an impulsive photo) Tonight I join a remarkable group (@greatcometbway) of people and try and put my stank on the damn thing. I have been getting blessing from #TheHomies, my Familia, fans and strangers alike. I thank you for your words and have read them all. (yes, all of them ) I will do my best, I will carry love in my heart, and I pray people are moved, motivated, and marinate in the magical moments me and this capricious cast carefully have crafted for you to sloppily savor. My name is Oak, empathy is everything, I'm starting as Pierre tonight. Not tomorrow, not yesterday, tonight. #MyNameIsOak #KatyPerry #PierreAndProsper #BackOnBroadway #BlackOnBroadway

Perhaps most excitingly he will have a starring role in Netflix's upcoming series Mindhunter playing FBI agent Holden Ford, tracking down rapists and murderers. Real gritty stuff.
