Bella Hadid to Make Her Acting Debut in Hulu’s Ramy Season 3

According to Variety, supermodel Bella Hadid has officially signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming third season of Hulu’s acclaimed comedy series Ramy. This marks Hadid’s acting debut after only appearing in reality shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured her mother Yolanda Hadid for four seasons.

Ramy is written, directed, and executive produced by Ramy Yousself, who is also a co-creator with Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch. It follows a first-generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood.

“It continues to bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists,” reads the synopsis. “In the third season, his family is forced to confront having lived a life dedicated to worldly concerns — and in some cases, lies — while Ramy all but abandons his spiritual journey, instead dedicating himself to him and his uncle’s diamond business.”

Joining Youssef in the series are Mohammed Amer (Crashing), Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049), Amr Waked (Lucy), May Calamawy (The Long Road Home), Dave Merheje (We Are Disorderly), Laith Nakli (24: Legacy) and Steve Way. Season 2 also featured Oscar winner Mahershala Ali in a guest-starring role as Sheikh Ali.

Ramy‘ Seasons 1 & 2 are now available for streaming on Hulu. The first one had earned Youssef a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
