I enjoy watching Navi Rawat on Numb3rs. What is her nationality and does she understand the math on the TV series?
—Jessica Lang, Belmont Shores, Calif.
Rawat, 32, was born in Malibu, Calif., but her father is from India and her mother is of German descent. "I am totally devoid of the math gene," she says. "I double majored in college in American literature and theater, so I am more of a right-brain person." Co-star David Krumholtz, on the other hand, "has the math gene. Sometimes he will even correct the math professors who do the show. I can barely talk and write the equations at the same time."
