Retrieved on 2020-01-18. “I’m a Toronto-based actor and the show shoots in Toronto, so I went through Canadian casting. It was like other auditions, where you hope your tape will be seen and the right people come across it. It was quite a few months after I auditioned that I heard I got the role. It’s because the show’s start date was delayed.”

When Jonathan Frakes was directing he was like “Ah, this reminds me of the good old days, back on the bridge shenanigans.” And that is kind of like what it is. You get so deliriously tired that eventually you start singing. Saru gets his long legs up there on the captain’s chair and it is a good old time.
