47. Riz Ahmed
This has become the year that everyone has fallen in love with Riz Ahmed. From Rogue One to The Night Of and so much more, Riz is taking our hearts. Why? Because he’s so charming that we can’t help but love him.
You may remember him from his role in Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal that truly put him on the map. But Riz is also an accomplished rap artist as well as an actor! Basically, he’s just an amazingly talented guy who is on the rise. But lucky for us, he’s also fun to watch.
When it comes to Riz, he makes you love every character he’s playing because he’s so charming and he just brings you into everything he does. Which says a lot about Riz and his talent. Even the weirdest role has us in love with him and it is completely because of Riz.
Just look at Bodhi Rook! The character was great but also became everything he was because of how Riz took him on. It could have been the pilot that helped the resistance and we wouldn’t have known or cared who was playing him but Riz brought Bodhi to the forefront of our minds and we were in love!
