Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is the breakout star of Netflix’s new comedy Never Have I Ever, which premieres this Monday, April 27th and was created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher! We caught up with the leading lady, who plays a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl named Devi. Throughout the binge-worthy 10 episodes, we see Devi as an overachieving high school sophomore who has a short fuse that gets herself into hilariously difficult situations. The series is even narrated by tennis legend John McEnroe (you’ll have to watch to find out why).
