  Summary  

Sendhil Ramamurthy is an American actor. He is best known for the role as geneticist Mohinder Suresh in the NBC drama Heroes.

  Biography  

 personal life
Ramamurthy was born in Chicago on May 17, 1974. His parents emigrated to the US from India. He has one sister who is a physician. He and his sister were raised in San Antonio. There, he went to Keystone School and graduated in 1991. He is the cousin of film director Jay Chandrasekhar. Ramamurthy is married to actress Olga Sosnovska and the couple have two children. Their daughter, Halina, is four years old, and son, Alex, is two years old.

Ramamurthy attended Tufts University initially as a pre-med major to follow in his parents' footsteps. He was also a member of the Kappa Charge of Theta Delta Chi. He became interested in acting when he took an "Intro to Acting" class during his junior year as part of his graduation requirement. After participating in several plays — including Our Country's Good, he chose to change career goals. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in history and then attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, from which he graduated in 1999.

 career
Ramamurthy has appeared in theatrical productions of A Servant of Two Masters in London's West End, Indian Ink at the Soho Repertory Theatre, and East Is East at the Manhattan Theatre Club. His film credits include Love & Debate , Orient Express, Blind Dating, Little India, Shor in the City and Gurinder Chadha's comedy film It's a Wonderful Afterlife. In addition, he has appeared on several TV shows, including Ellen, Casualty, Guiding Light, Grey's Anatomy, Ultimate Force, Heroes and Numb3rs.
Ramamurthy enjoys playing football. He made a conscious decision to not audition for stereotypical Indian roles, although he has been offered such parts. Ramamurthy's role on Heroes was his biggest role to date. Although the character of Mohinder Suresh was originally written for a 55-year old, his audition tape and screen test were convincing enough for writers to rewrite the part for Ramamurthy.

Ramamurthy guest starred in a season four episode of Psych titled "Bollywood Homicide", directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

It was announced in March 2010 that Ramamurthy had joined the cast of the new USA Network show Covert Affairs. Ramamurthy appears as Jai Wilcox from the second episode onward, replacing character Conrad Sheehan III, played by Eric Lively in the pilot. The show premiered in July 2010.
