Darren Barnet is one of the main actors of Never Have I Ever, the relatively new Netflix romantic comedy. Today the third season premiered, where we will be able to see how the story between Devi and Paxton continues.

Barnet has gained a huge fan base thanks to her role in the series that debuted in 2020. Since that time he has been a favorite among young audiences for his humor and talent. Undoubtedly, the actor brings us a character with a Zac Efron vibe that has the audience going crazy.
How old and tall is Darren Barnet?
Darren is 31 years old and stands 5' 10" (1.78cm) tall. He didn't require much physical training for his role as Paxton, but he did tell of being asked to do something specific for the scene where he has to take off his shirt, in the first season of Never Have I Ever.
"Originally they told me they wanted me to take it off in the back, with one hand, and I almost choked. I thought 'this isn't going to work, it's staying around my neck,' so I managed to do it with the other arm and it worked. I just had to do it as fast as I could so I rehearsed a lot at home and it became a muscle memory", he said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Who is Darren Barnet's girlfriend?
As far as is known, the actor had a brief relationship with Mikaela Hoover, his Love Hard co-star. It is not known exactly how they started dating, but there are sources that claim that their relationship began in April 2021 and ended in November of the same year.
