Sendhil Ramamurthy is a directors actor, in that he chooses roles with equal measures of responsibility and pliability and an added dose of the unknown. His acting repertoire reveals fan-favourite roles: cult series Heroes, in which he portrayed genetics professor Mohinder Suresh; spy-drama Covert Affairs, as CIA agent and analyst Jai Wilcox; and The Flash, as DC villain Dr Ramsay Rosso or Bloodwork. Ramamurthy has also dabbled in voice-acting for animated projects, with roles in Overwatch: Alive, Lego Jurassic World and Family Man.
For the #LockdownWithWeekend live session with Ramamurthy, we will get chatting about his recent role in Never Have I Ever as Mohan Viswakumar, his pull towards espionage and science fiction, and memorable behind-the-scenes anecdotes.
