Amir El-Masry shoots the role of Bolts in Rude Boys, a new comedy pilot for BBC Three.

Jazzie and his mates Sanjeed, Webby and Bolts are trying to work out what to do with their lives, how to get girls and generally avoid being publicly humiliated. These lads are too soft to hang out with the local hard youths and too baffled to hang out with the newly-arrived Hipsters. The script is very funny and really works.

This comedy pilot will feature as part of BBC Three Comedy Feeds, a broadcasting initiative that showcases new emerging comedy talent and is available exclusively on BBC iPlayer.


Amir is a recent graduate from LAMDA. He has also had leading roles in feature films, El Talata Yeshtaghalonha and Ramadan Mabrouk Abu El Alamein Hamouda, the latter earning him an Egyptian Oscar for Best Young Actor and national acclaim.

He recently shot the role of Bolts in new BBC3 comedy pilot Rudeboys for director, Ben Gosling Fuller. He has also filmed the role of Alireza in Rosewater directed by US political satirist Jon Stewart. Other television credits include Casualty for BBC TV.

Amir shot in Morocco for season two of Transporter: The Series and also for season two of the FX production, Tyrant as Mousa. Most recently, Amir has been filming The Night Manager as semi-regular character Youssef.
