Mindy Kaling’s Netflix production, Never Have I Ever boasts a talented trove of young actors. The dramedy follows Devi and her friends while they navigate typical teenage crises, including her relationships with two heartthrobs, Paxton and Ben. Jaren Lewison’s Ben character is the rival of Darren Barnett’s Paxton. And we honestly don’t know who to root for! Lewison is an experienced young actor, but this is his biggest role to date. Our Jaren Lewison wiki is the perfect primer on this up-and-coming actor.
Jaren Lewison Is from Texas
Jaren Lewison was born in 2000 in Dallas, Texas. He is the younger of two children born to Jason Lewison and Lauren Bernstein Lewison.

Lewison Was a Regular in Barney
After graduating high school, Lewison moved to California, where he’s currently enrolled at the University of Southern California. At the same time, he’s making strides in his acting career with his first major role in Never Have I Ever.
But Jaren Lewison is no newbie who went from his high school theater group to this new Netflix series. In fact, he got his start as a child actor.
