Here's Why Emmy Award–Winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Looks So Familiar
Yahya is taking over Hollywood one performance at a time.
The 34-year-old actor won his first Emmy — Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series — last night for his work in Watchmen, and he earned high praise for his acceptance speech.
This fall, you can find the New Orleans native and Yale graduate starring in Netflix's The Trial of the Chicago 7, playing the Black Panther Party cofounder Bobby Seale. He's also set to star in Candyman, a sequel to the 1992 horror classic, in 2021.
For those of you who may recognize the face but not yet the name, I'm here to help. Ahead are the most notable TV shows and movies Yahya's appeared in since 2016, which will remind you why he's already one to watch.
