Biography

Known to fans as Oliver on the wildly popular series "How to Get Away with Murder" (ABC, 2014-), Conrad Ricamora was born in Santa Maria, California in 1979. He took an interest in singing and dance as a child, but had a difficult time pursuing his interests as he grew into his teen years, with very few male role models for him to follow. It wasn't until his junior year at Queens University of Charlotte that Ricamora took an acting class on a whim and was instantly taken with the craft. He began his career on screen shortly after earning an MFA from the University of Tennessee, starring in the low-budget horror film "Nightmare at the Fear Factory" (2005). He scored a small role as a DMV officer in Will Ferrell's smash hit comedy "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" (2006) the following year, but continued to act on stage, appearing in plays like "Sleeping Beauty" with the Storybook Musical Theatre company. He would later earn particular acclaim for his performance in a renowned off-Broadway production of "Here Lies Love" in 2013 before landing his role on "How to Get Away with Murder." In 2015, Ricamora made his Broadway debut, playing Lun Tha in a revival of "The King and I."
