Never Have I Ever Darren Barnet and Jaren Lewison Interview

"Never Have I Ever" Stars Darren Barnet and Jaren Lewison on Cringey Secrets

"Never Have I Ever" is absolutely one of Netflix's breakout hits. The teen comedy-drama just released its third season, and POPSUGAR had the chance to speak to stars and internet heartthrobs Darren Barnet and Jaren Lewison. These two, beyond adorably teasing one another for copying each other's answers to our questions, had so much to reveal about their costar Maitreyi Ramakrishnan.

First of all, you have to see the secret handshakes each actor has with Ramakrishnan. It's beyond endearing, and when Lewison describes their handshake as "a little more emotions," that comment seems to carry the weight of both their offscreen and onscreen relationships. Plus, they dish on what makes Ramakrishnan such an incredibly generous costar and how the show and their characters have developed over three seasons.

Not to mention, each actor shares his cringey high-school memories and explains how to retroactively forgive yourself. See this incredibly wide-ranging interview in the video above, and be sure to check out "Never Have I Ever," all three seasons of which are streaming now on Netflix!
