Sendhil Ramamurthy stars as Mohinder Suresh, the sometimes-good-guy-sometimes-bad-guy geneticist. While he started out as just another ho-hum human trying to complete his murdered father's work, he now has powers thanks to a faulty science experiment on himself. (Apparently The Fly isn't a popular film in Mohinder's native India.)
While Sendhil's family (and his character Mohinder) are from India, Sendhil himself was born in Chicago. He is now married with one child.
