The American theater producer and actor Jason Ralph is a dominant face in many stage and TV projects, and is widely-known for his appearances in the show “The Magicians” and “Madam Secretary.”
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Jason Ralph hails from West Palm Beach, Florida, and was born under the Taurus zodiac sign on 26 April 1986, which makes him 36 years old as of 2022. He spent most of his childhood in McKinney, Texas, and was brought up by his parents Beth Ann and Noel Gonzales, the origin of his stage name is unknown. He developed a knack for acting at an early age and his parents were very supportive of his dreams. Ralph grew up an introvert, and believes that appearing on stage as a child built his confidence, gave him more freedom, and made him eager to learn more.
Ralph went to elementary school in McKinney and became very keen on acting – he appeared in a skit that was based on the short story “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. He attended McKinney High, and matriculated in 2004 to Collin College, situated in Plano, Texas. He continued practicing acting, and was cast in a number of plays, including “All’s Well that Ends Well,” and “Twelfth Night.” Jason later joined the State University of New York (SUNY) at Purchase, and appeared in a number of plays there, such as “Two Gentlemen of Verona” playing Valentine, “Lady Windermere’s Fan” as Darlington, and in “Book of Days” as James. He graduated with a Bachelor of fine arts degree in 2010.
Interests and Facts
Jason and his wife Brosnahan are avid canine lovers who have two pets, pit bulls named Nikki and Winston – they like taking adorable pictures of the dogs and posting them on Instagram, and they consider them ‘the love of their lives.’
“The Magician” star has a thing for shoes, and has hundreds of pairs in his collection. He usually buys a new pair whenever he goes shopping together with his wife, as sources have revealed.
Jason first appeared on screen in 2010 with a guest role in the episode “Breaking Fast” of the TV show “The Good Wife.” He subsequently featured in the shows “Gossip Girl” and “Unforgettable”, both in 2011, before making his film debut two years later with his role of Gary in the Jessica Szohr and Chris Lowell-starring drama “Brightest Star.”
In 2014, Ralph was seen in the comedy-drama movie “I’m Obsessed with You”, and then he appeared in the J.C. Chandor-written and directed action film “A Most Violent Year” alongside David Oyelowo, Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac.
Rise to Prominence
Jason appeared in the TV show “Madam Secretary” from 2015, and then played the recurring role of Quentin in the fantasy-drama series “The Magicians,” appeared in more than 50 episodes, leaving the show when its creators wanted to change its storyline, and eliminating the protagonist was a perfect way to do it. Concurrently, Ralph featured in “Aquarius”, and later appeared together with Hilary Duff and Sutton Foster in the comedy show “Younger.” He made recent appearances in the film “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” in 2021, and in several episodes of the well-received comedy-drama “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.”
After graduating from the SUNY, Ralph co-founded the Strangemen & Co. theater company, and initially served as its Artistic Director before he became its president in 2018, after making his stage debut portraying Jordy in the play “IN”. He continued appearing in other plays, such as “The Little Mermaid” and “The Woodsman” from 2012 to 2014, before he rose to stardom with his acclaimed role of Peter Pan in “Peter and the Starcatcher.” He has since appeared in a number of plays, including his project “On the Head of a Pin” in 2013, and 2018’s “Bernie and Mikey’s Trip To the Moon.” His most recent projects are “The Courtroom” and “The Great Filter” in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
Jason is a very secretive person and has kept most details of his personal life away from the media.
His fans found out that he’d married Rachel Brosnahan – an Emmy Award-winning actress famous for her role of Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel in Amazon Prime TV show “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel” – at the 2018 Emmy Awards ceremony, when the duo publicly appeared with identical wedding bands. Upon the revelation, the duo admitted that they had exchanged vows in December 2016. They had kept their dating life under the wraps, revealing later that they’d met during the filming of the now-canceled series “Manhattan” – which premiered in mid-2014 and ended in 2016.
The couple’s main relationship goal is to support each other’s career endeavors, which is one of the reasons why they have been private about their personal lives, as his wife revealed during an interview with People magazine.
In early 2017, Jason shared his wife’s photo on social media, and captioned it – ‘Zero bias alert: THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD AND YOU SHOULD WATCH IT. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon!! #themarvelousmrsmaisel’. On 2018’s Halloween day, Ralph honored his wife’s praised performance by dressing up as her Golden Globe award-winning character, Midge; while delivering an acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony in 2019, Brosnahan thanked Jason – ‘…I love you. I wouldn’t be here at all without you. Thank you.’
