Bose started her acting career in the theater in Delhi before joining the cinema.

Now that storytellers in India are much more open to exploring a variety of ideas, the actress said she hopes to make the most of it. “I hope I can explore more in India. The OTT is really shining right now when a lot of interesting women and actors, I’ve never seen before, suddenly I’m paying attention. There is a great talent. The whole atmosphere in the writers’ room has changed because of Amazon, Netflix. I just hope the producers see this is a great opportunity to do more business with someone like me, ”Bose told PTI in a Zoom interview.
As an artist, she said her goal is to maintain a good balance between Indian and international projects.
“I want to do at least one project in India. It’s my house. This is where I come from. I’m a middle class girl, I have a different kind of desire, I also want to explore Indian stories, ” she added.
While trying to get the best of both worlds, Bose said she also wants to avoid being labeled. “In the West there is another type of stereotype, in India there is another type of stereotype. I would always persevere to be different in everything I do because I don’t think people come to see me, they come to see the character. of time. ”The show is based on Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy novel series, set in a world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to wield it.

Bose said she landed the role of Alanna Mosvani shortly after casting director Tess Joseph and showrunner Rafe Judkins saw her audition. The actor believes the series has taken him to uncharted territory as a performer. “I was at a very strange crossroads in my life, where nothing I got made sense because I had done these things before.

To prepare for her role, Bose said she relied completely on the script and didn’t read the series of books.
“The book series has great fandom. He has a great heritage so I didn’t want to be influenced by the book to create the character. So my discussion with Rafe Judkins was about the script and how I see Alanna.
