Rishan Dhamija is an actor/writer based in New York. Rishan’s parents were hyped to hear that after graduating from acting school (UNC, M.F.A. ‘19), he’d get to play doctors and IT guys on TV. Something they couldn’t get him to do in real life. He wasn’t going to give them the satisfaction. And so, he got his second M.F.A. in dramatic writing (NYU-Tisch ‘21) so that he could create authentic South Asian content for himself and his friends. Rishan recently appeared on TV shows like Apple TV’s Little Voice and NBC’s New Amsterdam and will be seen next in Apple TV’s limited series WeCrashed.
