THIS artist turns narrator for Darren Barnet's character Paxton Hall-Yoshida in the show.
Netflix original show Never Have I Ever season two dropped today (July 15, 2021). The whole series created by Mindy Kaling is narrated by former American tennis player John McEnroe who talks from Devi Vishwakumar's (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) perspective. However, in the first season, the makers roped in Andy Samberg to narrate Ben Gross' (Jaren Lewison) story in one episode. For the second season, the narrator is for Darren Barnet's character Paxton Hall-Yoshida.
And it's none other than supermodel Gigi Hadid! She starts the narration by saying, "This is Paxton Hall-Yoshida. He's a 16-year-old boy from Sherman Oaks, California. And I am model, designer, activist and a former 16-year-old from California, Gigi Hadid."
The supermodel shared the video on her Instagram page and wrote, "Had the BEST time getting to narrate a new episode of @neverhaveiever — I got your back, Pax! Check out Season 2, NOW on @netflix!!! Big love to @mindykaling & the whole NHIE team!"
Not just that, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy also makes a brief appearance in the episode to narrate what Ben feels when Devi and Paxton are cordial to each other in the school hallway.
Interestingly, it was Chrissy Teigen who was set to do the voiceover for Paxton's character. She was changed last minute after claims of the model and TV personality bullying online surfaced on the Internet.
Earlier, the spokesperson of Never Have I Ever released a statement regarding the replacement. As per reports in Entertainment Weekly, they said, "Chrissy Teigen has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever."
Gigi's narration was kept under wraps and now fans are delighted to hear her in one of the important episodes of the show.
