From Shapeshifter to Far Cry 4:

Luna and Sam S4 Ep7Fans of HBO’s True Blood will remember Janina Gavankar as Sam Merlotte’s (Sam Trammell) shapeshifting girlfriend, Luna Garza. Since she left the show at the start of Season 6, she has appeared on TV shows such as The League and The Vampire Diaries. More recently she has taken on the role of Meredith Bose in the new series, The Mysteries of Laura.

Besides her passion for acting, Janina is an avid gamer. As a result, she is currently working on the video game, Far Cry 4. it is a game which she is very excited to be involved with:

I play Amita in the game and I cannot believe that this happened to me. It is an incredible video game; it’s badass. If you have a gamer friend on your Christmas list this is the game for him/her. I think I would say that even if I weren’t in the game.

And – because her life isn’t hectic enough as it is – she is also launching a new website for the older generation geeks. The website is called AltFound.com and Janina had this to say about it:

You can sign up now to be one of the first people to know about it. It is basically a website for grown geeks who are not childish or nostalgic, we all have grown and have diverse interests.

Recently Janina got to sit down with Chelsea Lewis from The Celebrity Cafe and chat about all things geeky in her life. If you want to find out more about what she had to say about Far Cry 4, AltFound.com and what it was like working on a show such as True Blood, then please click here.
