Introducing The Cover Star of Teen Vogue's April Issue - Charithra Chandran
Charithra Chandran was born in Scotland, an only child and the daughter of Indian immigrants, both doctors. She moved around a bit before settling in Oxford City, England, with her mother. She gravitated toward acting as a young child, training with the National Youth Theatre — whose alumni include Helen Mirren, Ben Kingsley, David Oyelowo, and more — learning Bollywood dance, and traveling to India frequently, spending four months of the year with family there. She considers both the UK and India her home.
“For me, colorism in some ways is more painful because it feels like a betrayal of your own. If someone’s racist to you, you have your community to lean back on. But if someone’s attacking you from inside your own family, or trying to oppress you, or create a hierarchy within your own family, that is in some ways, so much harder to deal with.”
