Ali Ahn And William Jackson Harper’s Relationship
According to our reports, Ali Ahn and William Jackson Harper first met and started dating sometime in 2016. The first picture of the two of them together on social media was in November 2016. And they had appeared on William’s Instagram.
Since then, William and Ali have appeared on each other’s social media way too often. And sometimes they appear with their dog. The two of them always have kind words to say to each other.
For example on William’s birthday on 8 February 2020, Ali posted a photo of William with their dog accompanied by the following captions: “Another sentimental birthday post. To the funniest, kindest dude I know other than Chico. Happy birthday, @williamjacksonharper. May this next decade be as delicious as the moment in this photo.”
The latest photo of the couple on Ali’s Instagram dates to 22 January 2021.
Other than the Instagram posts and the not-so-personal kind words, William has never been too eager to share his personal life with the public. William rarely ever speaks about his girlfriend in interviews.
In 2020, William and Ali starred in a live reading of The Burdens by Matt Schatz. The live stream started on 21 November 2020 at 7 PM ET. The program was available on zoom for pay-per-view viewers.
How Old Is Ali Ahn?
We do not know exactly. In 2015, when Ali Ahn was playing in Wendy Wasserstein’s production of The Heidi Chronicles, Broadway Buzz reported that Ali’s age was “Barely legal”. The words were between two quotes. So, they probably do not mean her actual age.
Anyway, Ali celebrates her birthday every year on 24 July. Thus, her zodiac sign was Leo.
Ali Ahn Nationality And Ethnicity
Ali Ahn’s nationality is American and her ethnicity is Korean. It was her grandparents’ generation who moved to the US and turned the family into Korean-American.
Ali Ahn Career
Like her boyfriend, Ali Ahn was also an actor but unlike William, she was more of a theatre actress than a screen actress.
Although, Ali has 39 credits as a screen actor. Among them, a few of them were for important roles. For example, she appeared as Tinker on Black Box (2014), as Josie Cho on The Breaks (2017), as Nicole on The Path (2016-2018). And recently, she appeared as Suzanne Wu on Raising Dion (2019-2021).
We have mentioned Ali’s work in the 2015 revival of Wendy Wasserstein’s The Heidi Chronicles. That was her Broadway debut.
The Heidi Chronicles won the 1989 Pulitzer prize for drama. And Elizabeth Moss, who played the lead role in the 2015 revival, was nominated for Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play.
However, even when she was working on Broadway, Ali still had a day job of teaching.
Previous to that, Ali had appeared on the off-Broadway productions of Sugar House, Twelfth Night, etc. Her most recent theatre work was in a Rajiv Joseph play called Letters of Suresh.
The story goes that when casting for the play was announced, Ali messaged “every Asian American actor friend she knew working in New York City” because it was “very rare to have a story that centers around an Asian American character’s growth”.
Ali plays the character of Melody in the play. Ali has described her character as a female character with creative angst. “And to see a woman doing that — and not in the context of motherhood, and also that she’s Asian American — is different.”
Ali also talked about returning to the theatre after the COVID pandemic and the complete shutdown of the theatre. “Definitely the first few shows, it didn’t feel like it was happening. It feels like a weird time warp. It just feels like everyone who’s in the audience really wants to be there. That’s really nice. It’s nice to perform to people who are so appreciative of the luxury that it is to be in a group and enjoying a story,” she shared.
For her education, Ali went to Yale and the California Institute of Arts. She joined Yale only for its history and because she wanted to “be able to do as much theater” as she wanted.
Before starting college, she had learned piano for 11 years. She was also really into gymnastics.
