NOC Interview: Lisa Ambalavanar Talks All Things ‘The A List’

Lisa Ambalavanar stars as Mia in The A List. The show first premiered in 2018 on BBC and was then picked up by Netflix. The second season just hit the streaming platform on June 25, 2021 and continued the mystery that left fans on the edge of their seat in season 1. The A List is definitely the addictive supernatural teen drama you’ve been searching for.


Romance, rivalry and radical mystery collide as a group of teens attend a remote island sleepaway camp in this suspenseful, supernatural drama.

Aside from her role as Mia, the actress is best known for portraying Alia in Doctors and starring in The Stuff of Legend.


Ambalavanar and I discussed the importance of playing characters that aren’t based on stereotypes, what she learned from portraying Mia, the friendship between Mia and Alex, if she’s team Luka or Dev, what her dream storyline for a season 3 would be, memorable moments from filming, and so much more.
