Riz Ahmed is one of those actors who would definitely find a place in the list of ‘the best young actors working today’. Starting out from a bunch of independent films that tested his talents, Ahmed has graduated to bigger and better films. From his breakout role in ‘Nightcrawler’ to being a part of the ‘Star Wars’ universe, and now ready to play the antagonist in (what hopefully will be a part of the MCU) ‘Venom’, things are only getting better for him. The ‘proving his mettle’ part is over for Ahmed because of the wide of range of characters he has portrayed and the load of critical acclaim that he has amassed with every single one of them.
A thing about Hollywood is that the roles for people of Asian ethnicity are limited. A similar thing has happened with Ahmed, as he has majorly been a part of the movies/TV shows with the themes surrounding terrorism. However, with a variety emerging in his roles, hopefully, that part is over. Here is the list of top movies and TV shows of Riz Ahmed:
10. Girls (2012-2017)
In the final season of HBO’s acclaimed comedy series, ‘Girls’, Riz Ahmed played the part of Paul-Louis, a surfing instructor who becomes the centre of attention for Hannah (Lena Dunham). Playing the cool, free-spirited man, Ahmed easily got into the skin of the character and it was actually refreshing to watch him play a laid-back character, especially after a bunch of intense roles.
