Masterclass with actress Sarayu Blue

Sarayu Blue has been a pioneer in the film and television industry, breaking barriers in a field in which, as a South Asian, was often limiting. In 2018, Blue made television history as the second Indian-American woman to top-line a network comedy when she starred as Emet in the Amy Poehler-produced, NBC series, I Feel Bad. After receiving her M.F.A., Blue went on to play Varya in The Cherry Orchard at Yale Repertory Theatre. She then moved to Los Angeles where she began to accumulate multiple guest star credits. In 2013, Blue garnered attention with her portrayal of Dr. Sydney Napur in the David E. Kelley medical drama, Monday Mornings, and then as Kareema on The CW's No Tomorrow. Blue also starred as Trina in the Netflix film series based on the Jenny Han book trilogy, To All the Boys I've Loved Before. Other credits include, Happiest Season, The Unicorn, Medical Police, Blockers, Station 19, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, and VEEP. Theater credits include, Livia in, The Tamer Tamed, at Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Belle in, A Christmas Carol, at the American Conservatory Theater, and Babbo in, The Death of Doctor Browne, at Iowa Summer Rep. Blue received her B.A. in Theater Arts from the University of Iowa, and her M.F.A. from the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.
