Jaime Cepero -Afro Latinx actor, writer, and activist - swiftly became a fan favorite for his portrayal of love-to-hate character Ellis Boyd on the NBC musical series "Smash" from executive producer Steven Spielberg. His musical Francois and the Rebels - a punk rock re-telling of the 1791 Haitan Slave Revolution - was recently produced through MTF Musicals at Joe's Pub to glowing reviews. As a guest singer Jaime has performed in jazz rooms the likes of The Metropolitan Room and Birdland, as well as to charity audiences on several different Broadway stages. His other film and television credits include MESS (Freddy) HereTV/Amazon, Indie features I Am Michael (Kidd) starring James Franco, Dating My Mother (Will), Daddy (Tee), and Disney's The Game Plan. He is an active voice for political activism, and recently received critical acclaim for his performance as Claude in the 50th Anniversary revival rock musical Hair at the Tony award winning Dallas Theater Center in TX.
