Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti on “iZombie”
Rahul Kohli plays Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Liv’s (Rose McIver) boss in the Seattle coroner’s office, on The CW’s hit drama “iZombie.”
Kohli was born in London, England, and began acting in school plays at an early age, but it wasn't until he was 17 that drama became his main focus. After studying film in college, Kohli applied for drama schools and began to learn his trade on stage, performing in various theater productions, from William Shakespeare’s “Henry V” to Eduardo De Filippo’s “Sabato, domenica e lunedi.” After leaving the theater and acquiring an agent, Kohli also worked on British television, performing in well-known dramas such as “Eastenders” and “Holby City,” as well as working on worldwide advertising campaigns for Heineken and Sony.
While screen acting has always been his primary focus, Kohli still enjoys being on stage, including in a recent stint at The National Theatre, working with acclaimed director Howard Davies.
