Aladdin star Mena Massoud reveals the struggle of actors of colour in Hollywood
The actor will next be seen in the series Reprisal, alongside Abigail Spencer
Egyptian-American actor Mena Massoud, who played the titular role in Disney's live-action Aladdin earlier this year, has revealed that he still has not auditioned for another film despite Aladdin becoming a blockbuster. In a press interaction, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the struggles faced by actors of colour in Hollywood.
Though he beat 2,000 others to land a role in the Disney film, Massoud said that he has not been offered any film after it. He also revealed that he is seen as a wild card in auditions, which are usually filled with Caucasians.
Massoud will next be seen in the series Reprisal, which will have him co-starring alongside Abigail Spencer. The series is expected to be released tomorrow in Hulu.
