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
