Dear Evan Hansen's Ben Platt Once Stole a 'Harry Potter' Book

Ben Platt sits on stage alongside co-star Laura Dreyfuss during SiriusXM’s Town Hall with the original Broadway cast of Dear Evan Hansen on Friday (April 14) in New York City.

They were joined by the rest of the cast – Rachel Bay Jones, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Michael Park, Mike Faist, Kristolyn Lloyd, and Will Roland – as well as the creative team, including Oscar-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

In a new interview with Teen Vogue, Ben was asked to reveal the biggest lie he’s ever told as the Broadway musical is based on a lie that his character tells.

Ben opened up about being at sleep-away camp when the fifth Harry Potter book came out. All the kids’ parents sent them copies of the book, except his didn’t.

“In the middle of the night, I took another kid’s copy from my bunk and wrote my name in it, and put it on my bunk bed,” Ben said. “And then in the morning he just assumed that he lost his and assumed that mine had come in the mail and I completely got away with it. It certainly ate away at me – enough that I can still remember it, but I have never come clean. I don’t even remember his full name. I know it’s also Ben, which is why I thought to take his. So if he’s reading this, I’m really sorry and I hope you got to read the fifth Harry Potter.”
