Have I Ever?
By MATT STORC
Teen dramedy "Never Have I Ever" recently debuted its third season on Netflix, and throughout the series, Devi Vishwakumar has navigated a tumultuous and chaotic relationship with her longtime crush, Paxton Hall-Yoshida. Several of the episodes featured Paxton’s mom, June Hall-Yoshida, played by famous soap opera star Kelly Sullivan.
Sullivan's big-screen debut came as a Bavarian peasant in the 2005 film version of "The Producers," based on the Mel Brooks Broadway show. She would continue her working relationship with Brooks, starring as Inga, the lab assistant in the Hilton Theater's stage production of "Young Frankenstein" in 2008.
Soap opera fans may know Sullivan from "General Hospital," where she played Kate Howard from 2011 to 2014, and "The Young and the Restless," where she played Sage Warner from 2014 to 2016. Sullivan was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for both roles and continues to appear in several other TV shows as well.
