Janina Gavankar? (ft. Janina Gavankar)
Wednesday, 6 June
Today's episode is longer than usual, but for good reason: we spoke with Janina Gavankar. You might remember her as the friend to Duchess Meghan who tried to high five a palace guard at the Royal Wedding. Or maybe you remember her as Papi from The L Word! Or from her work in video games like Far Cry 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront! Or The freaking Mysteries of freaking Laura! But after this interview you'll probably remember her best as an iconic Who? Weekly guest.
Janina graciously shared stories about the road to the Royal Wedding, the importance of being in the ~~database~~ before a big event, and how the tabloids treated Meghan's friends after the engagement was announced. But beyond last month's soirée, she shares her contentment with being a Who, her involvement in the tech industry (did you know she was the first actor to join Twitter?!), her dream of joining the Blue Man Group (not to mention the EXTREMELY rude rule that is preventing her from applying), and gets real about why her beloved character may or may not be part of The L Word reboot.
So take a listen. She's not just a Who, she's a Wholigan.
