Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.
Another Life was just released worldwide on Netflix! I play the role of Dr. Nani Singh who is an extremely intelligent physicist. It’s a great show with a great cast, and you must watch!
With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?
I like to hit the gym daily and get some hard workouts in. I train in kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu as well. I love hiking with my dog Beast, and of course I enjoy having some wine with my friends!
When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?
Wow, that is a loaded question for someone who loves all food! Seafood in Vancouver is amazing, and Coast is one of my favorite seafood restaurants. Maguro (in Ladner, BC) is the best for sushi. I love Italian and Thai, but I can’t choose a particular restaurant because there are too many good ones. And pizza and wine is a must—Novo is great for that.
What types of dishes do you usually order?
I guess that depends on the restaurant, but I usually don’t hold back when I eat out, and will order anything I’m craving. Recently, I had the best clam chowder I’ve ever had in San Francisco—still thinking about it!
Do you cook?
Yes. I usually cook healthier meals at home so that I can indulge when I eat out—lots of protein and greens. I also love to BBQ! I can make some pretty yummy ribs
What types of drinks do you order when out?
Usually red wine—a Californian Cabernet Sauvignon usually. My favorite cocktail is a Vodka Martini or something not too sweet.
Do you prepare drinks at home?
Yes, when I host, I like to have a signature cocktail or drink for the evening. The most recent one was a Moscow Mule type of drink. I love to make festive drinks near Christmas time as well, usually something that includes peppermint.
Do you own a home bar?
I absolutely do!
What is it stocked with?
My home bar is stocked with red wine, single malt scotch and vodka!
What is your favorite drink/cocktail?
Cabernet Sauvignon! I love wine and recently went to Napa where I tried my favorites thus far.
Have you ever been a bartender?
No, I have not, but when we have people over, I love to take over the bar and make fun drinks and shots for everyone.
