In an Instagram post, actor-singer Ben Platt shared how boyfriend Noah Galvin made 2021 "mostly wonderful."
Platt originated the title role in The Broadway
coming-of-age musical Dear Evan Hansen
. He reprised the role for the film adaptation of the musical, which opened in September.
Following Platt's departure from the play, Galvin, who starred in the ABC sitcom The Real O'Neals
, assumed the lead of Evan Hansen.
"2021 often deeply sucked and yet he somehow made it mostly wonderful," Platt captioned a photo of himself kissing his boyfriend on the cheek.
During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show
, Platt, 28, explained that he and Galvin, 27, were friends for about five years before they started dating.
"We've been together a year-and-a-half now," he said in June. "We were friends for five years and right before the pandemic, we finally decided to really give it a shot. We kind of skated around it for a long time."
Platt played a bisexual student in Netflix's The Politician
and will play a queer role in the upcoming film The People We Hate at the Wedding
