The star of Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher’s Never Have I Ever takes her turn answering Queue’s Q’s.
Queue: Why did you decide to pursue acting?
Maitreyi Ramakrishnan: Definitely just after-school theater at my high school and being able to act with my friends. I never got sick of going to rehearsal. So I figured, why not pursue acting?
What was the audition process like for Never Have I Ever?
MR: My friend saw Mindy Kaling’s tweet to the world saying, “Hey, audition for my show.” She screenshotted it and sent it to me. I was lying on my couch ready to say, “Nah, I’m gonna take a nap right now.” But I didn’t, and we went to our library community center. We filmed a self-tape. We had to spend an hour figuring out how to make my mom’s camera work.
What is your pre-set routine?
MR: One thing I have to have before I go to set is my playlist with all these really hype songs. I gotta feel ready for the day.
