Lightroom CC: Option to reveal in finder?

If we have enabled the local storage of originals, can we easily ask Lightroom CC for desktop to show us the original of one picture in the finder? 

And, if we want to edit a RAW in another app than Photoshop (like Affinity or Luminar), is there a way to do that directly from Lightroom, without exporting the original first?

Thanks :)

They haven't made it too easy because they don't really want you rummaging around the local storage because it can cause issues (e.g. you might edit a rendered original or delete a raw file before it's uploaded to the cloud, etc.). If you set your photos to store on another drive, they're just in a dated folder structure, so you could find it that way. That said, I'd be inclined to save as original to somewhere temporary like the desktop instead.
