Sendhil Ramamurthy most recently appeared as Governor Julian in Stan Lee’s UK series Lucky Man, and American audiences can expect to see Lucky Man in late 2016 or early 2017. His next project is slated as the lead in the television adaptation of Adi Tantimedh’s Ravi P.I., in which he’ll play Ravi Chandra Singh, a destructive private investigator. Sendhil’s roles span not only television but theater and film as well.
Most recognizable from NBC’s Heroes as geneticist Mohinder Suresh and from USA Network’s Covert Affairs as Jai Wilcox, Sendhil has parlayed his exposure with a leading role in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.’s Shor in the City. He also had a supporting role in Gurinder Chadha’s It’s a Wonderful Afterlife, as well as an appearance in 2012 as Raj, the boyfriend of Mindy Kaling’s Kelly Kapoor on NBC’s The Office. From 2013 to 2014, Sendhil took on the role of Assistant District Attorney Gabe Lowen the CW’s Beauty and the Beast.
Born into a family of distinguished doctors, Sendhil originally attended Tufts University as a pre-med student, but after being cast in Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good during his junior year, his career path took an abrupt turn from medicine to acting.
He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in history and then attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Sendhil remained in London and appeared in stage productions including A Servant of Two Masters, and on ITV’s Ultimate Force and BBC’s Casualty before moving to New York City. There, he appeared in several stage productions including Indian Ink and East is East. Sendhil also appeared on the American soap opera Guiding Light as Lloyd, the faithful butler of Alexandra Spaulding.
His other television work includes roles in the Grey’s Anatomy pilot where he memorably played “Intern #2”, CSI: Miami, NBC miniseries In the Beginning, Psych and Numb3rs.
Sendhil’s other film work includes Love and Debate co-starring Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin, Blind Dating with Star Trek’s Chris Pine, and cult favorite The Slammin’ Salmon with the Broken Lizard Troupe. (A bit of trivia; Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar is Sendhil’s cousin.) Sendhil has also appeared in two short films directed by Mahesh Pailoor, 2001’s Little India, and 2007’s A Temporary Matter — a film based on Jhumpa Lahiri’s extraordinary short story. In 2012, Sendhil reunited with Pailoor to produce and star in Brahmin Bulls, Mahesh Pailoor’s full length directorial debut. 2013 brought Sendhil to your movie screens again with Liz Garcia’s film The Lifeguard where he co-stared with Kristen Bell, Martin Starr, Amy Madigan, and Mamie Gummer.
In addition to his varied work in the entertainment industry, Sendhil has been active in numerous philanthropic organizations such as The Asia Society, the Nanubhai Education Foundation, the VJ Amritraj Foundation, Characters Unite, Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome International Network, and the American India Foundation.
