If you turned on the television or went to the movies in 2016, there's a solid chance you witnessed a dramatic performance by British star Riz Ahmed.

In addition to roles in "Jason Bourne," "Una" and the new Netflix sci-fi drama "The OA," Ahmed also took command of the screen in both HBO's hit crime drama "The Night Of" and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."

"I just love learning and being pushed out of my comfort zone," he said. "So going from small dramas to massive sci-fi action was definitely a plunge in the deep end, but I really relished it."

In addition to his acting career, Ahmed is also hoping you'll hear his voice. The actor is a rising presence on the British hip-hop scene, performing under the alias Riz MC. In April, he dropped the nine-track mixtape "Englistan" to rave reviews.
