Who is Anirudh Pisharody from Never Have I Ever?

Anirudh Pisharody is an Indian-born actor, raised in Austin, Texas.

The 28-year-old has been featured in TV series including Fox’s hit drama,  9-1-1 (2018) and Big Sky (2020).

Pisharody has been acting since elementary school and always had a passion for creative arts – although he never imagined it could become a “full-time career” – according to an interview with PEOPLE.

“When I turned 18, my parents, who are immigrants from India, were like, ‘Maybe do something that’s a bit more stable,’ ” he explains.

“Even as a kid, I never seriously took acting as something that I could do for a living. It was always kind of a hobby to me, even though I enjoyed it a crazy amount.”

As a result, Pisharody earned a degree in public health at the University of Texas in Austin but quickly realized, after job experience, that the medical track was not for him.

“I told my parents, ‘Look, I think this is really what I want to do. I don’t think medicine is really for me. I just don’t have the passion there. I’d love to play a doctor on TV, but I’m not doing this,’” he told the outlet.

“And then they were like, ‘All right. Just don’t half-ass it. Go full send.’”

Pisharody told PEOPLE that he loves getting to work on a show that offers so much representation on screen.

“Oftentimes when you’re an actor, especially a South Asian actor, most sets you’re on you never get to see that many people who look like you on both the cast and crew side, so coming to work every day was just awesome.

“These opportunities are very few and far between,” he continued.

“I’m really happy that this is [show] for kids who are growing up now. It’ll give that next generation just a level of, ‘OK, I can do this if I want to.’ “
