Rami Malek is a famous USA's hacker. Just Joking! Malek is a hacker, going by the name Elliot Alderson in the award-winning drama series, Mr. Robot. He is a versatile actor who has also appeared as Benjamin in Breaking Dawn- Part 2.

The Emmy award-winning actor is actually born in an Egyptian family which makes sense if you have watched the movie Night at the Museum. How much do you know about him? Let's spy on his career as well as personal life, shall we?

Rami Malek's Career Journey to Stardom

Rami Malek made his film debut in Night at the Museum in 2006He portrayed the character 'Pharaoh Ahkmenrah' in that movie. Earlier he had appeared in few TV shows including Gilmore Girls and Medium. Rami also got casting role as a suicide bomber in the series 24. But these roles were different from the past roles as these roles were 'fit for him'. Talk about American 'stereotypes'!

Rami did not have any other option, as he was in the early stage of his career. Having been born into a middle-class family, he knew the road to his successful career was long and not an easy one. He had to struggle hard in his early career life. Malek told that he had to literally take three buses to work. Imagine that!

Malik has a twin brother and a sister. Luckily, the Robot star got a role in the HBO's World War II drama The Pacific in 2010. This helped him get noticed by the audience and got an appraisal for his role. But he was not anywhere near getting success with only supporting roles in several movies.

Malek was patiently waiting for the big opportunity. Finally, Rami Malek got his big break by playing as Elliot, the hacker thanks to the popular series, Mr. Robot. He should really thank the person who selected him for the role.

This ultimate role not only earned him several awards including a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice Award, and a SAG Award. In addition, Malek also played as Finn in the action-packed movie, Need for Speed in 2014.
