Sendhil Ramamurthy

Biography: Since his mother, father and sister were all doctors, it's no wonder Ramamurthy initially followed in their footsteps. However, while pursuing pre-med at Tufts University, he changed his focus after taking a drama class in order to satisfy his arts requirement. After graduation, he studied at London's Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and left with a comprehensive knowledge of the classics and his future wife — fellow thespian Olga Sosnovska — in tow. Due to his ethnicity, Ramamurthy was often invited to audition for what he deemed "stereotypical brown skin" roles: convenience-store employees and terrorists. But he refused to take these parts, opting instead to build his résumé slowly with meatier roles both on stage and in TV guest spots.

In his spare time, Ramamurthy is an avid tennis fan. Expand
