Riz Ahmed, our TV Actor of the Year and our all-round fave guy (maybe only equal to Stormzy, please don't make us choose), recently told the world how he was very close to royally effing up his role in Star Wars: Rogue One.

That's right, Riz, somehow not confident in getting his role in the blockbuster, sent fourteen, FOURTEEN different audition videos to the director.

We thought we could only dream of the day we would be able to see those videos in the flesh, but our dream has come true.

Entertainment Tonight released this behind-the-scenes video, where we get to see Riz trying his character out in a bunch of different ways.

He seems to also feel a need to change accessories for his different characters, with glasses and a tie wrapped round his head on different shots. This is something we can definitely get behind and maybe makes us love him more. (Is it possible?)

Riz wear many metaphorical hats too, since he is an activist, MC and our future husband.

He spoke to us about at the ELLE Style Awards earlier this year about his passion for helping refugees.

The idea of leaving one place to try to survive and flee suffering is a very basic human kind of behaviour we can all relate to. We've all done that on some point in our lives.Anything we can do to highlight the plight of others less fortunate than us is very important in these troubled times

And he took his whole family to the House of Commons for his ground-breaking speech on the importance of representation.

We love a keen family man, and that's what Riz is.
