Janina Gavankar talks games, acting, and that time Ben Affleck stole her gaming laptop

OK, maybe he just “borrowed” it

Did you know that we’ve been streaming again over on our Twitch channel? Just last week we hosted actress and musician Janina Gavankar!

We talked about her role in games like Afterparty and Star Wars Battlefront 2, what she’s been playing and watching during the past few months, and the classic games she’s been revisiting in her downtime. One of those games is The Turing Test, so naturally we made Pat play it for us.

We also touched on her love for tabletop games — she had a fantastic guest spot on Relics and Rarities, DMed by her True Blood co-star Deborah Ann Woll — and reminisced about that time Ben Affleck “borrowed” her laptop and forgot to return it.

If you’d like to follow our future livestreams, make sure you head on over to our Twitch channel and follow that thing right now! This was the first in a multi-part streaming series featuring the Polygon crew and gaming celebrities, powered by Alienware. Hope to see you on Twitch soon!
