Tonight Syfy premieres an all new episode of its series The Magicians
, based on the book series by Lev Grossman. The story follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) who discovers that magic is real and becomes a student at Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy.
The students all have a special discipline, including Quentin's classmate, Penny, played by Arjun Gupta, who can "travel."
Recently Gupta sat down with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview to talk about his work on the series.
The actor first talked about how he got the role of Penny, and why he took it on. "I got an appointment to audition for the script. It was in August when I was working on How to Get Away with Murder
, and I skimmed it, and I saw Sera Gamble's name on it. I had worked with Sera a couple years before on a pilot, and so I was excited to go in for her, to talk with her, and just work with her on her projects.
