Supermodel Bella Hadid has joined the cast of Hulu series Ramy as a recurring guest star in Season 3. Per Variety, details haven’t been revealed on Hadid’s character or her relationship to the show’s other characters just yet, but this marks the Palestinian and Dutch model’s first acting role. The news comes as production gets underway on the third season of Ramy, the Emmy-nominated Hulu comedy that has also earned a Golden Globe for star Ramy Youssef.
Sharing the news of her acting debut to her 50 million Instagram followers, Hadid, 25, wrote, “aka the local backgammon tournament. best cast , best crew, best show. honored & excited . yallaaaa Ramy. if you haven’t watched the first two seasons…. go. run. now. love you.”
Supermodel sister Gigi, 26, commented on the post, “Sooooo excited !!!!!!!!”
Justin Bieber shared his support by writing in the comments section, “ur gonna kill it,” with a bunch of praising hands emojis.
Ramy also stars Laith Nakli, Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Mohammed Amer and Steve Way. As Ramy returns, it continues the story of first-generation Egyptian American Ramy Hassan (Youssef) and his family. Per its logline, Ramy 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. 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.”
Ramy is written, directed, executive produced and created by Youssef and produced by A24.
