Rami Malek, an Egyptian-American, was born and raised in Los Angeles. He studied theater at the University of Evansville in Indiana. Rami made his low-key debut in 2004 with the comedy drama show, ‘The Gilmore Girls’, but he had started showing great promise quite early, attending musical theatre classes and performing plays at schools and graduation. His first real impact on the audience came with the prominent role of Kenny on the Fox comedy series, ‘The War at Home’, which earned him accolades from GLAAD.
There was no looking back for Rami after his 2006 feature film debut, ‘Night at the Museum’, and its 2009 sequel ‘Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian’. Awards and critical acclaim followed Rami wherever he went – the next one for his role of Corporal Merriell “Snafu” Shelton in the mini-series, ‘The Pacific’, which earned him the Emmy Award and also caught the attention of Hollywood heavyweight Tom Hanks, who cast him in his feature film ‘Larry Crowne’ in 2010. 2010 proved to be a major turning point in Rami Malek’s career, as the announcement of him playing the character of Benjamin, the Egyptian coven vampire in ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’, came during that year. The real breakthrough moment for him was when he was cast in the 2015 series, ‘Mr. Robot’, for which he deservedly won an Emmy.
In 2018, Rami portrayed the legendary rock musician Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, which won him the much deserved Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. To play the role of the iconic singer, Rami shifted to London and took the help of professional coaches to learn the flamboyant vocalist’s dialect, movements and gestures. He also took singing and piano lessons and watched Freddie’s videos on You Tube for hours every day. No wonder the movie was a colossal box office hit, earning over $800 million worldwide.
