Rogue One’s Riz Ahmed wins 1st Emmy Award for The Night Of

Riz Ahmed, who played an Imperial pilot defecting to the Rebel Alliance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, won his first Emmy Award Sunday night for his role as lead actor in a limited series for movie for HBO’s The Night Of.

Buzzfeed notes Ahmed is the first male actor of Asian ancestry to win an acting Emmy, and the second of any gender to do so. (Archie Panjabi was named outstanding supporting actress in 2010 for The Good Wife.)

Ahmed, a British-Pakistani actor, plays a Pakistani college student wrapped up in an American murder investigation in The Night Of.

In Rogue One, his conscientious and reluctant Rebel, Bodhi Rook, is responsible for choosing the titular call sign that becomes immortalized after the Battle of Scarif.
