Over the years, Netflix, through its multitude of movies and TV shows, has given up-and-coming actors a platform to showcase their talent to global audiences.
This is best exemplified in shows such as the young adult comedy-drama Ginny & Georgia, as many of its cast members are young actors just getting their start in the industry.
A notable star in Ginny & Georgia was Rebecca Ablack who takes on the role of Padma, but what do we know about the actress – from her age and social media presence to her previous roles?

Padma is in Ginny and Georgia
Padma was introduced in the first episode of Ginny & Georgia as a classmate at Wellbury High and Marcus Baker’s “occasional” girlfriend, which was an uncomfortable fact for Ginny as she and Marcus recently met.
As Season 1 continued, it became clear that Marcus did not consider the relationship serious and by Episode 8 the couple officially broke up.
Due to their shared feelings for Marcus, Ginny and Padma had often been at odds with each other, which made early episodes of Season 2 quite awkward for the couple as Padma had been hired as Ginny’s replacement at the Joe’s Blue Farm cafe after Ginny leaves. city to stay with his father Sion.
However, Joe allowed Ginny to return to her old job as Padma needed help showing her the ropes.
She and Ginny began to bond over the course of the season and even arranged for the cafe to host its first ever open mic night where Padma performed the lovely and soulful song, The Comedown.
