Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is getting candid about the fear she felt before filming “Never Have I Ever” season 2.
The first season of the hit Netflix show was streamed in 40 million households within its first 28 days of release.
“I actually thought season 1 was a fluke and that I am now a terrible actress and I’m going to let my cast down,” admitted the Mississauga native to ET Canada.
“I’m gonna let Mindy (Kaling) and Lang (Fisher) down and they’re all gonna hate me. My career is over. I’m blacklisted from Hollywood and it’s done.”
However, co-creators Kaling and Fisher convinced the young star otherwise.
“They were like, ‘You’re meant for this role,'” she recalled. “This is where you’re meant to be. You’re a good actress and we would tell you if you suck. So after all that anxiety, we were having fun. Then we were like, ‘Yeah, let’s play!'”
“Never Have I Ever” is streaming now on Netflix.
