    Британский актёр и музыкант. Наибольшую известность приобрёл ролями в фильмах: «Дорога на Гуантанамо», «Четыре льва», «Стрингер», "Изгой-один. Звёздные войны: Истории", а также в телесериале «Однажды ночью». Неоднократно выдвигался на премию Британского независимого кино. Записал два альбома. Ахмед начал свою актерскую деятельность с фильма Майкла Уинтерботтома «Дорога на Гуантанамо», где он исполнил роль Шафика Расула — члена т.н. Типтонской Тройки. Лента получила приз «Серебряный медведь» на Берлинском кинофестивале[8]. После этого Ахмед снялся в нескольких телевизионных ролях: в 2007-м году в драме «Бритц», в 2008-м в триллере «Тупик» и финансовой драме «Wired». В 2009 году принял участие в телефильме «Свободное падение», где его партнерами были Доминик Купер и Сара Хардинг. В том же году снялся в главной роли в независимой ленте «Shifty» режиссёра Эран Криви — Ахмед исполнил роль харизматичного торговца наркотиками. За эту работу он был номинирован на премию Британского независимого кино, наряду с Колином Фарреллом и Бренданом Глисоном. В 2009 году снялся в фильме Салли Поттер «Ярость». В следующем году Ахмед исполнил главную роль в сатирической комедии Криса Моррис «Четыре льва», за которую он получил свою вторую номинацию на премию Британского независимого кино за лучшую мужскую роль. Так же Ахмед исполнил роль второго плана в историческом триллере Нила Маршалла «Центурион». В 2012 году он снялся в одной из главных ролей в фильме «Неблагоприятные кварталы», за эту работу был выдвинут на соискание премии Британского независимого кино в третий раз. В том же году отметился ролью в фильме «Фундаменталист поневоле» — киноадаптации одного из самых успешных романов Мохсима Хамида, где его коллегами были Кейт Хадсон, Кифер Сазерленд и Лев Шрайбер. В 2014 году Ахмед принял участие в съёмках фильма «Стрингер», где он играл роль Рика, напарника актёра Джейка Джилленхола. Эта работа была очень тепло встречена критиками, актер получил множество номинаций на различные профильные награды. В 2016 году Ахмед исполнил роль Насир «Наза» Хана в минисериале HBO «Однажды ночью», вновь получив множество одобрений кинокритиков. В том же году Ахмед снялся в фильме «Изгой-один. Звёздные войны: Истории» — новой антологии в киновселенной Star Wars.
