Sophie Cannon from the Boston Globe spoke to Sendhil this week.

If you could relive your favorite memory, would you? On NBC’s “Reverie,” actor Sendhil Ramamurthy’s character can make that happen — at a price, of course. Ramamurthy, who’s a Tufts grad, plays the chief oneirologist — oneirology is the study of dreams — at a virtual reality company. In reality, we spoke to Ramamurthy as he was headed to Logan to catch a flight.

With many people in the real world already embracing virtual reality, “Reverie” star Sendhil Ramamurthy said his new series, which shines a light on the pitfalls of VR, may not be so far-fetched. “What exists in “Reverie” doesn’t exist now but it’s not too far out. In 10, 15 years max it’s totally in the realm of possibility,” he told The Post. Ramamurthy, 44, plays Paul Hammond, a dreams specialist and the caretaker of Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi), a former hostage negotiator who’s trying to rescue people who’ve overstayed their welcome in the pleasurable virtual world of the show’s title. Her mission each week is to reunite comatose players with their families and friends.

Ramamurthy — best known for playing scientist Mohinder Suresh on the 2006-10 NBC drama “Heroes” and its 2015-16 sequel, “Heroes Reborn” — spoke by phone from Manhattan, where he lives with his wife, actress Olga Sosnovska, and their two children, Halina, 13, and Alec, 10.

Saloni Gajjar at The Teal Mango spoke with Sendhil about Reverie and what it’s like being a “torch bearer” for South Asians on television.

Sendhil Ramamurthy’s foray into our collective television screens began with singular episodes on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Numb3rs,” and “Ultimate Force.” It wasn’t until 2006, when NBC’s sci-fi drama “Heroes” premiered, that he became a household name thanks to his character Mohinder Suresh.

Since then, he hasn’t really slowed down. His credits include “Covert Affairs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Office,” and “CSI: Miami.” With this impressive roster and years of experience, Ramamurthy also carries the torch of being one of the first South Asians who represented the diaspora on-screen and continues to do so with his return to NBC in his new show “Reverie”, which premiered on May 30.

In this thrilling virtual reality drama, he plays Paul Hammond, the designer of a program known as Reverie. It allows user’s minds to step into a simulated reality made up of their memories and desires. Reverie is so great, though, that their minds are stuck in the program and the users go into a coma. Ex-hostage negotiator Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi) is brought in to help, to go into their simulated reality and bring them out, while she deals with her own traumatic past.

We spoke to Ramamurthy about playing non-archetype, three-dimensional characters, how “Reverie” displays the pros and cons of modern technology, working with Shahi and the rest of a very talented, very diverse cast, and the rise of South Asian representation in the media.
