New York Post interviews Sendhil about Reverie
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.
