The media pointed out that Barnet and Ramakrishnan were almost 11 years apart in age, with Barnet being 29 at the start of the show.

“Darren was so good at the swoony stuff—being an aloof, cool guy—but he was very good at the comedy stuff in his audition,” co-creator Lang Fisher said of Barnet and the audition process. “You can’t ask someone how old they are at an audition,” she went on. All you have to do is presume that they are of a suitable age. We didn’t find out how old he was until much later in the season, at which point we were like, “Oh, right.” I figured he must be in his 20s. Additionally, I should mention that a real 15-year-old boy is not going to be a hottie. They look like a tiny baby.” Positive reviews were given to both Barnet’s performance and Never Have I Ever. Netflix reported that 40 million households worldwide had watched the series since its premiere.
