Never Have I Ever Wiki

Eleanor Wong is one of the main characters in Never Have I Ever. She is a member of the Wong family and one of Devi's best friends alongside Fabiola at Sherman Oaks High. She has aspired to be an actress since she was younger, and also wishes to be a director of her own film projects. She is portrayed by Ramona Young.

Physical Appearance[]

Eleanor Wong is a sixteen-year-old Chinese-American girl. She has a wavy black bob haircut with bangs and brown eyes. Since Eleanor has a passion for theater, she often wears bold and bright clothes and accessories such as colorful scarves, capes, berets, sweaters, dresses, and statement jewelry.

When performing, she always wears various wigs and expensive, extravagant costumes as the characters she portrays. They help her get more in touch with the characters she portrays.


Eleanor is kind, sweet, supportive, and the most dramatic person at Sherman Oaks High School, due to her love of acting her mother, Joyce Wong, brought up upon her as a child. Eleanor is a great friend and genuinely looks out for her friends and their wellbeing. Eleanor is also great at acting and her world practically revolves around it. She is very supportive such as when Fabiola came out to her, and when Devi lost her father.

However, Eleanor can easily be manipulated by people she is infatuated by or people she looks up to, like when Malcolm tricked her and gaslighted her into thinking her friends were toxic and damaged people even when they were looking out for her and her wellbeing, and when Joyce Wong made Eleanor think she was actually going to stay with her but abandoned her once again.

Sharon, her stepmother, taught her that she should be with people who wouldn’t abandon her like her ex and her mother. Eleanor also has family problems and has made some questionable decisions like dumping Oliver Martinez for Malcom, hating her father and stepmother, getting mad at her friends who were looking out for her, and quitting acting because she associated acting with her mother.



Eleanor's mother, Joyce Wong, left her when she was little to "follow her dreams." They later reunited, but it wouldn't be long until her mother left again.
