Ahmed Malek to Star in New Canadian Film

Published

on

Seems like Ahmad Malek’s acting career is booming at the moment, and we couldn’t have been happier for him. The young actor just signed for the lead role in Canadian director Patricia Chica’s (also known as Chicatronica) next film Montreal Girls.

At only 22, the actor is receiving international recognition, partly due to his role in Amr Salama’s most recent film Al Sheikh Jackson and his role in Mohamad Diab’s Eshtebak in 2016. It’s definitely hard to dismiss a talent so striking like that of Malek’s.

According to Screen Daily, Malek “will play an Egyptian student who heads to Montreal on a medical school scholarship. Once there, he hooks up with a wild cousin who introduces him to the Canadian city’s vibrant underground subcultures and thrilling nightlife. This exciting new world inspires Basil’s innate desire to become a poet and hurls him into a tumultuous relationship with three young women who shatter his perceptions and reveal to him his destiny.” We know we can’t wait! 

Director Patricia Chica herself revealed that she spent a whole year doing nothing but searching for the perfect actor for the role until she found Malek, and lucky for us, we couldn’t be more certain that he would succeed at pulling this off. 

Montreal Girls will be Chica’s first feature film after apparently, more than 20 triumphant shorts, including The Morning After (2017) & Ceramic Tango (2013).

Rami Malek’s nomination for a Golden Globe, leaves us once again feeling proud! 

Rami Malek got nominated for a Golden Globe award as Best Actor in a Motion picture- Drama, for his role in this year’s hit, Bohemian Rhaosody, as Freddie Mercury. The movie is also nominated for the Best Motion Picture, but we all know who we will be rooting for during the awards, Rami Malek! The Egyptian heritage, who got to perform such an iconic role in a movie recommended by the whole world. 

Malek explained during an interview that in order for him to nail such a role, he actually watched Mercury’s original 1985 Live Aid performance more than 1.500 times! Talk about persistence ladies and gentlemen, can we be more any proud? 

He also added: “That’s something we tried to get move for move, even just gesture for gesture perfectly.

“It felt like I had it in my bones and I didn’t want to keep going back to it. It felt like sometimes you would lose a little bit of the authenticity if you tried to nail it so perfectly.” Rami Malek is nominated along with other outstanding celebrities, Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, Willem Dafoe in At Eternity’s Gate, Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased and John David Washington in BlacKkKlansman. But we hope to celebrate his win nonetheless, and soon!

Heartthrob! Rami Malek Is Charming Us With His Broken Arabic

Published

on

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate Egyptian-American superstar/heartthrob, Rami Malek, who seems like he’s going to keep charming us with his broken Arabic every once in a while.

Last year, a BBC Arabic interview by Husam Sam Asi with Malek went viral as the Mr. Robot lead actor spoke in his parents’ mother tongue. It was the first time for us, Egyptian fans, to hear him casually utter words like shukran, masr, and Alhamdulillah; Arabic for thank you, Egypt, and, thank God consecutively. We were all surprised with our jaws dropping.

Now, after finally getting used to the actor’s accent, he is no longer hesitant to throw in an Arabic word here and there during his interviews with the Arab media. Lately, two more interviews began circulating on social media; one with Patrick Abboud and another one with Husam Sam Asi. He mainly talked about his new lead role in the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, portraying none other than Queen’s legendary Freddie Mercury! Add to that some extra juice on Malek’s ethnic background, his expectations, and even things you probably never knew about Mercury!

He confessed that he thought he’d never make it in Hollywood as an Arab

Bearing Malek’s Egyptian roots in mind, the actor probably never thought he’d go beyond roles like King Tut’s for instance. He didn’t have high expectations for himself in the industry as it was not that easy for an Arab to make it big in a place like Hollywood.

Rami told Abboud, “For a long time I thought, ‘I’m not gonna get this. There’s no way I’m going to play the lead of a television series!” He then added, “I did not think that, that would be the case. It was not dominated by actors who look like me or you or had names like us.”

Today, Malek is proudly a Primetime Emmy Award winner, he also has earned himself the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. And now, his role in Bohemian Rhapsody might be Malek’s gate to even more nominations and who knows, he might land himself an Oscar!

Malek and Mercury actually have things in common

Turns out that Freddie Mercury is nothing but a stage name for Farrokh Bulsara. He was originally born in Zanzibar to Parsis parents and lived in both India and London. Later on, when he formed Queen, he legally changed his name to Mercury. Hence, they’re both immigrants who made it to the big-time when they thought they couldn’t!

Rami finally assured our speculations made about the lyric “Bismillah” in Bohemian Rhapsody

If you’re a hardcore Queen fan, Bohemian Rhapsody must be your favorite song! Out of all the lyrics, one word, in particular, caught the attention of every single Arab out there. We were all probably like, “did he just say bismilliah?” You probably had your doubts as well and speculated for years, but Rami Malek just put your doubts to an end. Yes, Freddie Mercury did mean to say bismillah, Arabic for “in the name of God.”
