Priyanka Chopra’s list of fans — especially in Hollywood — is growing by the day. And American actor Blair Underwood, who is her co-star in the second season of American TV series Quantico, is the latest addition to that list. Underwood says the 34-year-old actor is the best he has worked with.
“Priyanka is amazing and so easy to work with. She has a great sense of humour. She has her good time on the sets and off it. Priyanka puts her heart and soul into the show, that’s one of the main reasons behind its global success,” he says.
Underwood, who played the protagonist in the American legal drama L.A. Law, thinks Priyanka has a big responsibility. “When you are a lead of the show, you are the first on the call sheet. It’s a big responsibility. Part of the responsibility is doing the job, which she does so well. Another part is to create a tone on the set, where others can give their best too. She is like this ultimate hostess,” he says.
The actor also defends PeeCee, who was recently labelled arrogant for refusing a film because she didn’t “like the lead actor”. “Priyanka isn’t afraid of hard work. I think it has taken her 14-15 years to reach where she is. The other day, I joked with her that I want to give her a statue with two letters on it — N and O, because she needs to learn to say no.”
