Award-winning actor Rami Malek talks to AwardsDaily TV about his sudden rise to fame on the unexpected critical and popular drama series Mr. Robot.
Rami Malek is on cloud nine.
He’s in Los Angeles and, prior to our interview, he’s just been speaking to Robert Downey Jr. for the August issue of Interview Magazine. It’s a special moment for him. It also caps off a year where he’s received awards attention for his star-making role in USA Network’s breakout hit, Mr. Robot. Critics and guild members alike have praised his performance, nominating Malek for the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Critics’ Choice Television Award as Best Actor, winning for the latter.
But, rest assured, Rami Malek is far from his TV persona, Elliot, the cyber security worker and vigilante. On a break from a shoot, Malek is in town for press, and AwardsDaily TV’s Jazz Tangcay sat down to talk about Elliot, paranoia, and how best to watch Mr. Robot.
