Ahmed Best (born August 19, 1973) is a voice actor who portrayed Jar Jar Binks in all three films of the Prequel trilogy. Best also appeared as extra in the role of Outlander Club patron Achk Med-Beq in Attack of the Clones. He has had voice roles in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and various Star Wars video games.

Best addressed the mixed and sometimes hostile fan reaction to Jar Jar Binks when interviewed in Star Wars Insider 56.

In 2018, because Jar Jar was so disliked, Best announced that he had considered suicide. This provoked an outpouring of support from fans, some of whom even started to appreciate the character of Jar Jar.
