In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last time they were starstruck to the last song they listened to. This week, Jaren Lewison take our call.
Never Have I Ever fans have been in fierce debate over whether Devi should pick Paxton or Ben since season one first dropped in April 2020, and it seems like the cast have just as strong feelings. Ahead of the season two premiere on July 15, POPSUGAR chatted with Jaren Lewison, and he gave his two cents about the love triangle. As the actor behind Ben, obviously he’s a little biased, but he certainly makes some good points for why everyone else should be Team Ben. “Him and Devi has such a strong connection,” he noted. “Their banter is something that is really great for a foundation of a relationship because it’s such a unique friendship. I think that they genuinely really do care for each other.” That being said, he did admit that Paxton is a “formidable opponent.” “He offers a lot for Devi, too. It’s a different kind of status, and I think that he is this exciting, popular, really attractive dude that offers a different world for her as well. So it will be interesting to see how Devi goes about that in season three, if we do get that chance.”
If Netflix does renew the series for another season, one thing Jaren would really love to see is more incredible cameos. While the first season features appearances from tennis star John McEnroe and The Office actress Angela Kinsey, season two is really stacked with guest stars like Common, Billy Crystal, and a voice narration from Gigi Hadid. As for a third season, both Jaren and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (who plays Devi) are hoping for another The Office alum. “Maitreyi and I always talk about if Steve Carell ever pops in, we’ll die,” he said. “I selfishly, in Ben’s world, if Adam Sandler pops in, I think I’d lose my mind. There’s so many opportunities for such cool cameos, you never know. Every time you read a script, it’s a possibility that somebody special could walk in.” With the new season of Never Have I Ever streaming on Netflix, see what else Jaren had to say in our Last Call interview.
