Personal life

Ramamurthy was born in Chicago to Tamil Indian parents, both of whom are physicians. His parents immigrated to the US from Bangalore, Karnataka, India.[1] 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; they have one daughter, Halina.[1]

Ramamurthy attended Tufts University initially as a pre-med major to follow in his parents' footsteps.[1] He was also a member of the Kappa Charge of Theta Delta Chi. He then 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, from which he graduated in 1999.[1] ,[2]

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 Thanks to Gravity, Orient Express, Blind Dating, and Little India. In addition, he has appeared on several TV shows, including Ellen, Casualty, Guiding Light, Grey's Anatomy, and Numb3rs.[3] Ramamurthy enjoys playing football. Ramamurthy made a conscious decision to not audition for stereotypical Indian roles, although he has been offered such parts.[1] Ramamurthy's current role on Heroes is his biggest role yet. 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.[4]

Ramamurthy guest starred on Psych the season four episode "Bollywood Homicide", directed by his cousin Jay Chandrasekhar.[5]
