Rami Malek is one of the stars of the long-awaited Bond film, No time to die, which is released this week on September 30 2021.
He will co-star with Daniel Craig, an award winning actor. This is Malek’s fifth and final appearance in Bond’s long anticipated film.
Malek began his acting career as a high-school student in California. There, he learned alongside some of the most famous Hollywood actors.
Rami Malek, a Los Angeles native, was born May 12, 1981. His father, a Cairo tour guide, was his father before he started in insurance. His mother, an accountant, is his mother.
At school, Malek was already working alongside Hollywood A-Listers including actress Rachel Bilson, who was in his year.
Malek also took a musical theatre class alongside Kirsten Dunst who was his year below.
Malek was first seen as Andy on Gilmore Girls in 2004. In the same year, he also got his first major screen role as Ahkmenrah, in the Ben Stiller film Night at the Museum. This role he re-enacted in two sequels.
He is well known for his role as Elliot Anderson in the sci-fi television series Mr.Robot from 2015-2019. His role in the series earned him the Outstanding Lead actor in Drama Series Award at the Primetime Emmy Awards 2016
He also starred in Hollywood films including Battleship in 2012 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in the same year, and his current estimated net worth is £5 million.
He is most well-known for his role as Freddie Mercury, in Queen Biopic Bohemian Rhapsody 2019.
Malek won the Oscars for Best Performance by an Actor In a Leading Role and the BAFTA Award for Best Leading Actor.
In an interview with The Guardian in 2018, Malek said that he had dinner with Brian May and The Kinks frontman Ray Davies, who shared their memories of Freddie Mercury with him and “the impression Freddie had on people.”
“How he could be alone at home and be quiet and reserved and, as he sometimes referred to himself, quite boring,” said Malek, “and then exist in such a powerful way on stage.
“The one thing that kept coming up was how generous he was. How he could make you feel you were the most important person in the room.”
In Bohemian Rhapsody, he starred opposite actress Lucy Boynton, who played Freddie Mercury’s girlfriend Mary in the film.
They became a couple after their film.
The Mirror reported recently that Malek had moved in with Boynton in Malek’s Los Angeles home of $2 million.
Malek will next be onscreen in the latest Bond instalment, No Time to Die, as villain Lyutsifer Safin.
Talking to Digital Spy about the new film, he said that it “promised a gut punch every second.”
“I think when you get out of that theatre, you will be moved, you will be entertained, you’ll get everything you want from a Bond film, essentially.”
