“You get an opportunity to do this job, as an actor, and you never know if it’s going to work or not.”

At 37 years old, Rami Malek just became Hollywood’s breakout star. Though Rami had picked up award trophies for his work on the celebrated cerebral drama “Mr. Robot”, it wasn’t until he stepped behind the mic to portray Queen’s iconic frontman Freddie Mercury in 2018’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that the Egyptian-American actor officially made the transition from acclaimed actor to unabashed movie star.

Rami Malek made his film debut in “Night at the Museum” in 2006. He portrayed the character ‘Pharaoh Ahkmenrah’ in that movie. Earlier he had appeared in few TV shows including “Gilmore Girls” and “Medium”. Rami also got casting role as a suicide bomber in the series “24”. But these roles were different from the past roles as these roles were ‘fit for him’. Talk about American ‘stereotypes’!
