Sendhil Ramamurthy talks life after Heroes
Story by Jack Foley
HEROES star Sendhil Ramamurthy – aka Mohinder Suresh – has been talking about life now that he’s left the show.
The Chicago-born actor, recently in the UK to promote his new movie It’s A Wonderful Life, is heading back to the small screen for his next assignment, the CIA thriller series Covert Affairs.
Speaking at the UK press junket for It’s A Wonderful Afterlife, Sendhil told IndieLondon: “It’s about the CIA and I play an American CIA agent. It’s being executive produced by Doug Liman who did the Bourne movies and Mr & Mrs Smith and Swingers.
“I’m really excited to start. It’s a very different role to what I do on Heroes… it’s kind of a kick-ass spy. You get to run around, shoot guns and jump around a bit. So, it should be a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Speaking of his time on Heroes with admiration, however, Sendhil went on to say that he was very grateful for the opportunities it has afforded him.
“Obviously, the profile from Heroes is what got me It’s A Wonderful Afterlife in the first place. It’s why Gurinder approached me. So, it’s been a real blessing.
“It’s opened up so many doors and I’m moving onto other things now. I’m just really excited and grateful for the opportunities that Heroes has given me…”
