Adeel Ahmed (Ghafur, the youngest son)

Adeel Ahmed has trained at TVI Actor's Studio and extensively with coaches. His first work included roles on television shows Law and Order: Criminal Intent, the pilot of Cashmere Mafia with Lucy Lui, and the Cherry Lane Theater production of The Woodpecker, starring Academy Award nominee Charles Fuller. After receiving rave reviews in Voices From Guantanamo, a play where he portrayed an innocent and amputated detainee, and in Off Madison, awarded "Best Comedy" at the Access TV Festival, he continued to gain attention for his work with acclaimed director Mehreen Jabbar, in the hit Pakistani television series Malaal, and his multiple roles in the Off-Broadway production 167 Tongues, which was featured in the NY Times. Ahmed's work was screened at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival through Golden Globe nominated actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's production company. He serves as Associate Artistic Director of the first major Pakistani-American Theater Company, Parwaz Playhouse, subject of a recent BBC feature, and will perform in their adaptation of O'Neill's Beyond The Horizon, opening in January. Recently, Ahmed is featured in 30 Rock star, Judah Friedlander's book, How To Beat Up Anybody and has signed on to two major films which are set to shoot next year. After first performing The Domestic Crusaders in its 5-week Off-Broadway run, he is excited to continue to be a part of this collaboration. He sends much love to family and friends!
