Any guesses any guesses? Okay fine, I’ll tell you! It’s Sid Mallya! Yep, Sid auditioned for the role of Priyanka Chopra‘s love interest but sadly didn’t get the role.
Sid was quoted as saying:
Priyanka’s character is called Alex and I had read up for the part of her lover. I guess I didn’t get the part because they wouldn’t want two Indians opposite each other. But I have to tell you it was the best pilot script that I had read. I did a talent show with ABC, which is why I got to read for a lot of parts for their shows. Quantico was by far their best!
I think Sid’s rave reviews about the pilot has definitely added to the excitement of Quantico‘s premiere. Not only this show, he also auditioned for critically acclaimed and extremely twisted (hence one of my favourites) True Detective. On that he had to say:
I had read for a Mexican’s part in HBO’s True Detective. They loved my audition, but I didn’t look like a gangster from any angle! A lot of people have said that I look ethnically ambiguous so that works in my favour. I could play Mexican, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, probably the last thing I could play is Indian.
Which show would you want to see Sid in? Tell us in the comments below!
