Riz Ahmed Will Appear in Season 6 of 'Girls'
Published Jan 13, 2017When he's not enjoying a rap career, Riz Ahmed has been seriously busy on the acting side of things. Along with his appearance in Rogue One, the performer fronted one of 2016's best shows, The Night Of, and even managed a sneaky appearance in The OA. Further proving our theory that Riz Ahmed is omnipresent, he's now popped up in Girls.
As EW reports, Ahmed will play a chilled-out surf instructor who offers Lena Dunham's Hannah Horvath some life advice in the show's final season.
Speaking of the cameo, showrunner Jenni Konner said, "Riz is incredible.... He's obviously playing a very different kind of character than The Night Of or Rogue One — a full-on surfer dude who pontificates about the water! He dips in and out of Hannah's life in an important way."
The final season of Girls hits HBO on February 12.
