RAMI MALEK

STAR TURN: The twitchy vigilante hacker Elliot on surprise hit Mr. Robot
AGE: 34
HOMETOWN: L.A.
WHERE WE FIRST SAW HIM: As a resurrected pharaoh in Night at the Museum
WHEN WE KNEW HE WAS GOOD: Five minutes into the show
WHEN HE KNEW HE WAS GOOD: When his portrayal of morphine withdrawal really upset his mother: “That must say something about my acting, if I'm convincing my mom that I'm actually sick.”
PRE-‘ROBOT’ REJECTION: “The rejection is something that takes a while to get used to. It does allow me to talk to any girl now without fear that she'll say no.”
