“Never Have I Ever” is one of the most popular series on Netflix. The show is an honest “dramedy”, which revolves around Devi Vishwakumar, who tries to absorb her grief after the sudden death of her father. And what is the best way to do it? By getting a boyfriend as quickly as possible and being invited to parties. The show recently went into season two, and we asked ourselves: How old are the actors?
After all, they all play high school students. Riverdale star Cole Sprouse will be 30 next year but what about the “Never Have I Ever” actors?
How Old Are The Girls?
Let’s start with the leading lady: Maitreyi Ramakrishnan plays Devi Vishwakumar on the Netflix show and is 15 years old. How old is your actress? Not that much older. Ramakrishnan was born on December 28, 2001, so she is currently 19 years old. Absolutely within the framework, we would say.
Also quite close to her character’s age is Lee Rodriguez, who plays Fabiola “Fab” Torres in “Never Have I Ever”. She’s also around 15 on the show and 21 in real life (born November 28, 1999).
Ramona Young, who plays Eleanor Wong in the series, is the oldest of the three: She is eight years older than her character because she was born on May 23, 1998.
How Old Are The Boys?
Benjamin Norris comes closest to the age of his series character: the actor is one of the few teenagers who take part in the show. It is known that he was born in 2003, but which day is a secret. So he’s either 17 or 18 years old, two or three years older than his character Trent Harrison!
Benjamin “Ben” Gross not only has a somewhat unfavourable surname but is also an actor who is reasonably appropriate in terms of age: Jaren Lewison was born on December 9, 2000, and therefore currently 20 years old. There are five years between him and his character in the series.
An actor holds the record. Darren Barnet plays Paxton Hall-Yoshida in the Netflix series, a 16-year-old student Devi is more than a little into. That would be a bit “big” in real life because actor Barnet is already 30 years old. That makes an age difference of 14 years; wow.
He was born on April 27, 1991. Some fans have already got excited about it and believe that an actor could have been found for Paxton, who is not that “old”. By the way: The other actor is Dino Petrera, who plays Jonah Sharpe on the show. He is also at least 30, maybe even 31 – it is only known that he was born in 1991.
