Rami Malek on Reinventing the Bond Villain in ‘No Time to Die’

No Time to Die is finally here! All week long we’ve been counting down to the release of the movie with interviews with the cast and director, so thank you folks for sticking with us! We’ve been fortunate enough to be graced by the presences of Cary Fukunaga, Jeffrey Wright and Billy Magnussen, Lea Seydoux, and Lashana Lynch! But, as is the case with all Bond villains, we’ve saved the most devious reveal for last! We had a chance to talk to Safin himself – the incredible Oscar and Emmy winning actor, Rami Malek!

As someone who loved Mr. Robot, Malek has been one of my favorite actors, and one of the best working today. So transparently, I saved this one for today because of how much it meant to me! While I noted in my review that I wish they did more with his character, I still think Malek was able to bring a semblance of humanity to Safin – a role that could have been an archetype of other Bond villains. And I am super grateful to have gotten the opportunity to speak with him about this. Have a look at what he had to say regarding that here:

Thank you all for checking out all of our reviews with this fantastic cast! We hope you enjoyed this series, and hope you get to enjoy No Time to Die, in theaters now!
