Patrick’s screen credits include plum roles on Homeland, The Art of More, Beyond, Godzilla, and The Flash, where he’s played Captain Singh, the first openly gay character in the DC Universe, since season one. In 2018, Patrick was nominated for a Leo Award for his work in Drone, in which he played a Pakistani father whose family is killed in a hellfire missile attack.
