The movie saw him going up against James Bond, as the scarred villain Lyustier Safin. Malek patiently waited for two-and-a-half hours a day, as makeup artists recreated the scarring that was just as intimidating as his character in the film. Malek’s dedication and acting chops are remarkable, as is obvious in the way he slides in and out of character in all his films, be it playing Freddie Mercury in 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody to a rookie cop in 2021’s The Little Things. The fact that he was one of the presenters at the Oscars in March represents his growing influence as a Hollywood star.
