Riz hailed as unlikely guru
He’s up for Best Actor for his portrayal of a drummer going deaf in Sound of Metal.
And in the times of Covid, 38-year-old Riz Ahmed has unwittingly found himself being hailed as a Hollywood truth-telling guru. Here are some of his best aphorisms:
■ If we want to break through to new plains in our lives, we’re going to find ourselves in places we feel uncomfortable. If I’m out of my comfort zone, then I’m in the right place.
■ Bandwagons roll through our lives. It’s up to you whether you jump on unquestionably or jump on to overturn them and subvert them.
■ The most liberating thing you can do is feel free.
PROFOUND Riz Ahmed
