I wanted to start a new thing on my blog. I used to do the favourite of the month with bands and artists, but I haven’t discovered any new ones lately or shared any I hadn’t shared yet. And since I’m a massive film lover and know lots of actors I love. It doesn’t matter what kind of film they play in, I’ll go watch it. Okay, that’s not entirely true, but you get what I mean. Anyway, without further ado: let’s get started!
This month: Rami Malek
Rami Said Malek, born May 12, 1981 is an American actor and producer. He is best known for portraying computer hacker Elliot Alderson in the television series Mr. Robot (2015-2019) for which he received awards such as the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series back in 2016. And, of course, most people know him as singer Freddie Mercury in the film Bohemian Rhapsody (2018). For this one, he received awards such as the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and British Academy Film Award for Best Actor. He’s the first actor of Egyptian heritage to win the Academy Award for Best Actor.
I honestly discovered him in Night at the Museum as Ahkmenrah. I just thought he was really attractive. But of course, that’s not the only thing. His acting was so good in the short scenes he had. His second NATM film didn’t show many scenes either, but the third. That’s what really made me love his acting. After that, I kept following him, moreover in Mr. Robot and saw other films he starred in. And as soon as they announced Bohemian Rhapsody, I was sold. Him being Freddie Mercury was like a dream to me. And he nailed it. I honestly think no one else could’ve portrayed Freddie like he did.
And, I (excuse my French) fucking loved him as Josh in Until Dawn. Yes, he did a voice actor role in a video game. The second I knew he was, I went straight to the gaming shop I always buy my games at and bought it instantly. He sadly doesn’t have many scenes, but the ones he has: he did such an amazing job.
My top 5 films/series he starred in:
- Bohemian Rhapsody
2. Mr. Robot
4. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
5. Need for Speed
If you know this actor, how did you get to know him? What did you watch of him?
Love, Deem ❤
