Rami Malek was born on May 12th, 1981 in Los Angeles, California, U.S. Aside from having Egyptian descent, the actor also has some Greek heritage in his blood too. His father was a tour guide over in Cairo, Egypt while his mother worked as an Accountant. Not many people know this, but the actor has an identical twin brother by the name of Sami. He also has an older sister by the name of Yasmine who is a medical doctor.
While growing up, Rami Malek attended the Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California . He graduated in the same year as fellow actress Rachel Bilson. Rachel Bilson became famous for starring on The OC TV show, but it would take Malek many more years before he became a household name.
Malek’s acting career started off very small as he got a small rile in the TV show called Gilmore Girls. He then helped do some voice work in the popular Halo 2 video game, although his involvement in the game was sadly uncredited. His first big movie appearance was playing the role of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah in the Night at the Museum comedy trilogy starring alongside Ben Stiller. His first recurring TV role came in a TV show called The War at Home.
The actor did not gain mainstream success until much later in his career. I first saw him starring in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 movie in a role as a vampire called ‘Benjamin’ In that same year, he also got a small part in the movie Battleship about the American Navy having to fight off an alien invasion.
The latest video game Rami Malek appeared in was the PS4 exclusive called Until Dawn. He played a kind of psychotic character named Josh, although the outcome of that game changes depending on the choice of the main player playing the game.
Malek later gained superstar status when he was cast in the main role in Mr. Robot that started in 2015 and is still going on today. His role in the TV show helped him earn an Emmy Award as well as many other acting awards in North America. Arguably his biggest role to date is playing the late Freddie Mercury in the biopic called Bohemian Rhapsody. This role is a huge one and it could help him earn an Academy Award next year!
In all, we estimate Rami Malek net worth in 2018 at $8 million.
