‘Covert Affairs’ Hunk Sendhil Ramamurthy to Recur on ‘Beauty And the Beast’

Covert Affairs Hang on to Yourself Season 3 Episode 1 (4)

Actor Sendhil Ramamurthy burst onto the scene courtesy of the once great drama ‘Heroes’ and followed that up with a role on the popular USA Network spy drama ‘Covert Affairs’. Now, the hunky actor will be creating some trouble on the new CW series Beauty And the Beast, coming between its two leads: NYPD detective Catherine Chandler (Kristin Kreuk) and man(beast)-in-hiding Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan).

According to a report at Zap2It, Ramamurthy will play Assistant District Attorney Gabriel Lowen, who first meets Catherine in – off all places – the womens’ locker room. He will first appear in episode 15 and will recur for the rest of the season. His character will be “deeply suspicious of some of the goings-on in the police department, particularly a death that just doesn’t add up; he will be pretty relentless in his investigations”. It would seem that “Lowen leads the search for the vigilante, finding his focus drawn to Catherine”.

Among Ramamurthy’s other TV credits are guest roles in episodes of ‘Psych’, ‘The Office’, ‘CSI: Miami’, ‘Numb3rs’, ‘Guiding Light’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.

‘Beauty And the Beast’ will be back with new episodes of its debut season on The CW starting on January 24 at 9/8c.
