Naren Weiss is Capturing Hearts From Tambaram to NYC


“When you put a strikingly good-looking actor in a classroom full of girls, you’ve got to be prepared for some crazy fangirl moments. But 26-year-old actor-cum-teacher, Naren Weiss, is probably used to it by now. Standing tall at 6’3, this Chennai boy has already captured the hearts of thousands across the globe. His latest stint is an action serial called The Brave, which will soon be telecast in India on AXN. And when this star is not busy conquering New York City, where he currently lives, he spends his time teaching children.

Most actors think of Hollywood and American TV as a distant dream. Naren is currently living that dream, having done spots in shows like Elementary, Blacklisted and Law and Order: SVU. Top that! “

Weiss’s Strong & Fascinating Performance in “Over Here”

Naren over here

“Langsner’s strongest moments are between Issam and Gilad. Gautam and Weiss successfully navigate a contentious but brotherly relationship that is the true heart of this play. In the program note, Langsner calls for peace in the most topical of ways. He wonders if this play will ever feel like a thing of the past. Through the impassioned, vulnerable eyes of these boys we see the possibilities for that.”– Keith Paul Medelis, Theatre is Easy

 

Weiss,…wields a darker, more mysterious quality that hints Gilad is never entirely on the level, and that adds some fascinating layers of possibility to a man who outwardly seems little more than afraid.– Matthew Murray, Talkin’ Broadway

 

Over Here features strong performances by (all, with) Naren Weiss as Gilad.”– Martin Denton, NY Theater Now
