Fans of the television show "The Good Wife" may be excited to hear that Archie Panjabi, the Emmy award-winning actress for her role as private investigator Kalinda Sharma in the television show, is staying at Harvard as a Visiting Artist in Residence this Thursday and Friday. 

You may also recognize Panjabi's name from her role in the 2002 film "Bend it Like Beckham" and later from her character in the 2005 film "The Constant Gardener."

Students will have the opportunity to hear Panjabi speak this Thursday at the New College Theatre Rehearsal Studio at 4 p.m as part of the Office for the Arts' Learning From Performers program, which promotes interaction between students and professional artists through workshops, classes, and discussions.

Panjabi will be interviewed in front of the audience by a panel of two Harvard students, and a reception at 5:30 p.m. will follow the discussion. The event is free to all students.

Sonia S. Dara '13, one of the moderators, says she is most excited to learn about Panjabi's acting career.

"I'm definitely looking forward to asking about how she got into acting—if that was one of her passions—and what her path to success has been," Dara said. "It would be really interesting to see how she went about doing that. And I'd want to know her future goals."
