Platt, who won a Tony for playing the title role in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, and Galvin, who succeeded him in the part, revealed their relationship in May 2020. And in a June 2021 appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Platt said he’d been dating Galvin for a year and a half. “We were friends for five years and right before the pandemic, we finally decided to really give it a shot,” he said at the time, per People. “We kind of skated around it for a long time.”
And in a New York Times interview this October, Platt confirmed that he had known Galvin for “three or four years” before his now-fiancé took over as Evan Hansen. “There’s this lore that [Dear Evan Hansen is] how we met, but it’s not,” he explained. “But it’s nice to have that detail of him understanding deeply what that experience was. And I feel very lucky to be with him — he’s changed my perspective, and made things, in a very positive way, feel a bit smaller and more manageable.”
Platt, meanwhile, starred in the Netflix comedy-drama The Politician and appeared in Will & Grace and The Premise. Along with Kristen Bell, Allison Janney, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson, he stars in the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, which started streaming on Prime Video on November 18.
