Debutante actor Shaz Khan is playing the lead role of ‘Ehsaan’ in Pakistani movie ‘Moor’. A Pakistani-American actor and filmmaker, Shaz started his career in New York acting in independent movies and plays and getting his MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio Drama School.
Regularly compared to a young Sean Penn for his ability to take bold risks and exhibit emotions far beyond his years, his versatility and ethnically ambiguous looks help him successfully portray diverse roles including a Frat Brother, Cancer Patient, Texan Gambler, Irish Cripple boy, A Boxer, Pathan from Balochistan, Linguist, and a young Oscar Wilde.
His ethnically ambiguous look has had him cast in a wide range of ethnicity and roles where he is able to showcase an emotional capacity well beyond his years.
