Never Have I Ever's Maitreyi Ramakrishnan Is Starring In A Cheeky Pride And Prejudice Remake

Between Bridgerton on Netflix and Sanditon on PBS, the regency period has become hot material for adaptation. Netflix is currently doubling down on the era. It’s already got Persuasion, a period piece film doing a direct retelling of the Jane Austen novel. But its newest adaptation is going the Clueless route, rewriting Pride and Prejudice for the modern era in The Netherfield Girls.

Netflix Star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan Will Never Say Never

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan was a 12th grader starring in a teen production of Chicago when Mindy Kaling began searching for a young South Asian woman to lead her precocious Netflix dramedy, Never Have I Ever. Her winning audition beat the 15,000 others who tried out for Devi—a part that earned Ramakrishnan a spot on A.O. Scott’s list of 2020’s best performances and a Time 100 anointment. Now the 19-year-old is bracing for season two—and trying to maintain perspective: “I kept putting the pressure on myself to represent brown girls everywhere. And I was like, hold on. If I’m not going to put that pressure on a fictional character, why the hell would I do that to myself?”
