Is Micaela Diamond Married To Ben Platt In Real Life?

Micaela Diamond got her break-out role as “Lucille” in the stunning Broadway revival of Parade. Her character was married to Leo Frank (played by Ben Platt), a Jewish man in 1913 Atlanta who was accused of murdering a 13-year-old girl who worked at a factory he managed. Their portrayal of husband/wife seemed so comfortable and realistic that many began wondering if the actors were married in real life too.

But are they married IRL? Keep reading to find out.

Is Micaela Diamond Married To Ben Platt In Real Life?

No, Micaela Diamond isn’t married to Ben Platt in real life. The two were only on-screen husband/wife and one of the bests ones at that.

Micaela’s character on Parade was adapted from a real person named Lucille Selig (a daughter of the city’s close-knit, well-off German Jewish community). She got married to Leo Frank (Ben Platt) a Cornell-​educated Brooklyn Jew who moved to Atlanta and became superintendent of the National Pencil Company factory.

Unfortunately, in 1913, a 13-year-old factory worker named Mary Phagan was found dead, and the suspicion of the white girl’s murder fell on Leo. So, after overweening political ambitions, and sensationalized reports in the local press send the public into a vicious prejudicial frenzy, the court sentenced Leo to death by hanging.

But his wife Lucille wasn’t giving up. As the fiercest advocate, she seeks justice for her husband amid a barrage of antisemitism. Finally, two years later, Georgia governor John Slaton commuted Frank’s sentence to life in prison. Sadly, some “upstanding citizens” in Phagan’s hometown of Marietta, Georgia, abducted Frank from his jail cell and lynched him!

Looking back, Ben said that Micaela had been “wonderful in this.” She not only helped him bring out his role as a martyr but also as a Jew in the early 90s. “It doesn’t take you long to feel that she’s on the path to something really big. She has this special energy that people want to be around. It’s also very meaningful to me that we are both just about the ages that Lucille and Leo were at that time, and that we were both raised Jewish,” he explained.

Well, Micaela (though a newcomer) certainly did an amazing matching Ben step by step and note for note.

Ben Platt is dating Noah Galvin as of 2023.

Thereafter, the duo went quiet for two years before they were spotted again at a performance of Wicked. Later, in Oct 2019, they again made an appearance with coordinated Wizard of Oz Halloween costumes at Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween party alongside their friends Beanie Feldstein and Molly Gordon. So, by this time they were already an item.

Since then, the lovebirds have been open about their relationship over interviews and social media. “We’ve been together a year-and-a-half now.

We kind of skated around it for a long time,” Ben said during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Fast forward to November 2022, the couple got engaged! And this Jan 12, 2023, the actors recently celebrated their third anniversary.

Also, this Feb 2, the duo spoke about the night they got engaged during an appearance on PBS NewsHour. “I did pretty good, I think,” Ben said before Gavin gushed that the proposal venue “looked like the set of The Bachelor.”
