Janina Gavankar facts

  • Janina Gavankar is an Indian-American actress most famous for her roles in True Blood and The L Word.

  • As she plays a shapeshifter in True Blood, she prepares for her role by researching the animals she's going to turn into and talking to experts who've handled them in the past. Thorough!

  • She is, by her own admission, a big geek and a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy. You could probably woo her with a list of your top five elves. Deffo worth a shot.


Why we love Janina Gavankar

You might have seen Janina Gavankar play promiscuous lady-botherer Papi on lesbi-drama The L Word, or the shapeshifting school-teacher Luna on vampire suck-fest True Blood – those are the two roles she's most famous for, anyway. She's also cropped up in Stargate: Atlantis (as Sgt. “Dusty” Mehra, which is a rubbish nickname to have), NCIS, Grey's Anatomy and on something called Epileptic Gaming, which sounds like a thoroughly dangerous and short-lived premise for a show.

What you may not know, however, is that super-hot Janina is also a dab-hand at sing-songing, having previously been a part of R’n’B group Endera, and released a number of nifty ditties as a solo artist, including a killer cover of Kanye West’s Love Lockdown. She’s fit, she can sing, and she can shape-shift into any animal you like – what more could you possibly want from a woman?
