Brit actor Riz Ahmed on his Oscar and Bafta nominated role


Riz Ahmed made his name in independent cinema before hitting the big time and a certain Star Wars franchise. Now with several Hollywood blockbusters and an Emmy under his belt, the Wembley-born actor is making a return to a smaller project which has won him high praise.

Ahmed’s role in Sound Of Metal as a drummer who is going deaf has won rave reviews and also a Bafta and Oscar nomination for best actor.
