USP Profile

Mayank Amin
2009 Pharmacy, PharmD

Mayank Amin (shown on left) entered USciences as a student of Pharmacy but graduated a movie star. While preparing for graduation, Amin received the call that a local casting director wanted to interview him. With the perfect look, Amin was immediately chosen to join the cast of M. Night Shymalan’s The Last Airbender as a member of the 'Fire Nation.' At rehearsals, Amin became a standout to the famous director. His dance experience with USciences' South Asian dance team, DhamaaL, allowed him to quickly memorize the choreographed martial arts routines. He soon became a featured extra, was chosen as a stand-in for star Dev Patel (right), and modeled for the 3-D filming and action figures. When asked whether a career in Hollywood is in his future, Amin admits, “I would welcome more show business opportunities, but I’d definitely like to keep my day job as a pharmacist.”
