Being South Asian in the U.K. is like being Latino in the U.S., I would guess. It’s a bit more hood. You see things; things happen. I was bouncing between worlds. You’re acting from a very early age, when you have to code-switch like that. I’m a hybrid, a mongrel. I think many people live that life.Riz Ahmed
The music I make and the process of acting, for me, are both about trying to understand people and get inside what makes us tick. That’s the main thing that excites me. Our sense of who we really are and what drives us.Riz Ahmed
I don’t feel that any kind of narrow stereotypes are representative of the work I’ve done, nor the range of the audience that work has found. I’ve played lots of different roles, and they’ve connected with lots of different people.Riz Ahmed
I think that in an Internet age, content is content. As long as you can stand up on the merits of what you’re doing right at that moment and aren’t just relying on your success in doing something else, it’s all good; people will respect you.Riz Ahmed
Trajectories aren’t linear. Life’s just a roller coaster. If you’re getting a chance to do cool stuff, and it’s varied stuff, just enjoy it. I guess I’m a believer in the randomness of life rather than it being a linear trajectory or an arc, a consistent smooth arc, towards anything.Riz Ahmed
