Biography

One of prime time television's few actors of Indian descent, Sendhil Ramamurthy built his career on defying stereotypes. A so-called "accidental actor," Ramamurthy got bitten by the bug fairly late in life at the ripe old age of 22. A conscious vow never to audition for stereotypical Indian roles limited Ramamurthy's employment opportunities early on, but his integrity paid off within a few years. After a string of notable television guest starring roles on such high-profile hits as "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ) and the British actioner, "Ultimate Force" (ITV-1, 2002-06), Ramamurthy finally got his big break in 2006 when he landed the coveted role of Dr. Mohinder Suresh, one of the principle characters on the high-flying hit adventure serial, "Her s" (NBC, 2006- ).
