The function of the James Bond villain has taken a psychological toll very quickly to kill star Rami Malek

While fans wait for Daniel Craig’s latest James Bond film to be released, No time to dieFor a few more months, the team behind the film will continue to promote their project with new insights into Craig’s final adventure as Agent 007. In an interview with GQ, Rami Malek, who will play the main antagonist Safin, revealed why the director of The Film had his Character once described as a “hyper-intelligent and worthy opponent” who is “more dangerous than anyone” [Bond has] ever met “.

“When I think of Safin, I think of someone who is meticulous but measured, and there is something about that that is really disturbing and unsettling. He’s someone who I sometimes feel is being watched and that’s it again. ” quite unsettling. He asks you to ask what you think is right, what you think is wrong, and how you interpret these two things as precisely as it appears. ”

Rami Malek It’s no stranger to giving intricate performances on complex characters, from his breakout lead in Mr. Robot to his Oscar-winning performance as Freddie Mercury in the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. However, when it came to playing Safin, the actor revealed that the path to understanding the character’s thoughts was very stressful for him psychologically.

“I think you’re starting to ask questions about what evil is. And especially with this character, I find him fascinating because he can break away from empathy in order to meticulously carry out his will, and I start to get involved, who this person is psychic. He’s inconsiderate and that could be – I’m in danger of giving too much away here – a result of something that happened to him, but I even acknowledge that it affects the analytical side of him as well I think he can still find a way to appreciate his own evil is something quite petrifying and psychologically something I couldn’t easily figure out. ”

From the sound James Bond will have to contend with a villain who tests him not only physically but also mentally. Craig has promised that No Time to Die will be a fitting swan song for his final appearance as Bond, and it seems the film has nothing to fear when it comes to a convincing villain.

The big question now is how long will the audience have to wait to see Bond and Safin fight. There were rumors that MGM wanted to outsource No Time to Die to a streaming service. But that rumor was debunked by the studio. It remains to be seen whether the film can keep its new date for a theatrical release in April 2021.

Directed by Cary Fukunaga will star Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch and Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek. This news first appeared in GQ Magazine.
