7 Facts About Janina Gavankar From The Woman in the House

Whether you know her from "The Morning Show," are a big fan of her character Ren Bhullar on ABC's thriller series "Big Sky," or have been following her since her days as Luna Garza on "True Blood," you know how seriously talented she is. And thanks to the powers that be — aka Netflix — the actress has returned to our screens in Netflix's new dark comedy series "The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window."

For those unfamiliar (you're seriously missing out, just saying), Gavankar has been acting for nearly the last two decades; Papi in "The L Word" was her first big recurring role. But Gavankar is way cooler and more talented than her acting credits let on. Like, did you know she's a classically trained percussionist and vocalist? Or that she was among the first people — and believed to be the first actress — to join Twitter? She's also one of Meghan Markle's really close friends.
