Meet Aml Ameen:
Aml burst onto UK cinema screens with his standout performance as Trife in the cult classic, feature indie film, Kidulthood. His performance earned him a nomination for Best Newcomer 2006 Screen Nation Awards, as well as a spot in The London Times list of Best New Actors of the Year.
Off the success of Kidulthood, Ameen landed a series regular role on the BAFTA Award winnning TV series, The Bill. His portrayal of Officer Lewis Hardy earned him the Screen Nation Award for Best Actor in 2007.
His continued success in the UK, along with landing a role in George Lucas’ Red Tails, ignited Aml’s career in Hollywood. He was cast in his first American indie film, Evidence, starring opposite Radha Mitchell and Stephen Moyer. David E. Kelley took notice of his talent and offered him the first role of his cast for Harry's Law at NBC, playing young lawyer Malcom Davies. The show also starred Kathy Bates.
In 2013, Screen International named Ameen as one of their Brits to Watch. He then landed the role of Cecil Gaines (young Forrest Whitaker) in Lee Daniel’s critically acclaimed and award winning feature film, The Butler.
This past year, Aml has appeared in the feature film, Beyond the Lights and was a lead in Fox’s blockbuster hit, The Mazerunner. He also co-stars with Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis in the feature film, Lila & Eve.
Ameen currently stars in the critically acclaimed Wachowski’s Netflix series, Sense 8 and will next be seen as the lead in the independent films, Soy Negro and Dara Ju.
