Amer­i­can star praises Cho­pra

Fiji Sun - - Showbiz -

Mum­bai: Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion actor Blaire Un­der­wood has praised her Quan­tico co-star and ac­tress Priyanka Cho­pra and says it is fas­ci­nat­ing to work with her. “I have had a num­ber of con­ver­sa­tions with Priyanka Cho­pra about be­ing num­ber one on the call sheet be­ing the star of the show. She down­plays that, but she is the main pro­tag­o­nist, we watch the show through her eyes and her per­spec­tive, so she is very much the star of the show and she car­ries it with a plum,” Mr Un­der­wood said.

“She is very gra­cious, she is very hum­ble, she is al­ways pre­pared, she is pro­fes­sional she is about her busi­ness,” Mr Un­der­wood added. The actor says he told Priyanka that she is “emo­tion­ally full”.

“It’s al­ways fas­ci­nat­ing to work with her, be­cause she trusts her emo­tions and if you look in her eyes there is al­ways an emo­tion in her eyes with­out try­ing to do too much,” he said. Mr Un­der­wood, who is seen play­ing the role of CIA of­fi­cer in the show, which airs on Star World, says “what makes this show re­ally work is that you re­ally get into the char­ac­ters”. “And she sets the tone in terms of the stan­dard of the work we are doing, the depth of the work we’re doing,” he added.
