Today we want to tell you a little more about her, and we have some curious facts that might wanna know about this fantastic comedian.

Let's see them

1978's show Mork and Mindy

1. Her first name is Vera.

The actress decided to use the stage name Mindy Kaling, but her mother originally called her Vera after a Hindu Goddess.

The middle name Mindy was chosen because while her mother was pregnant and living in Nigeria with The Office actress' father the only American show they could see was Robin Williams' Mork and Mindy.

It's funny because Kaling run into the late actor and told him the story, and he didn't believe her!

Mindy was a guest on Conan O'Brien show but she used to be his intern

2. The talented 41-year-old actress started out in the entertainment industry as Conan O' Brien's intern.

She claimed to be the worst intern ever! Just because she wanted to be around O'Brien all the time instead of doing her job.
