The Egyptian actor, Rami Malek , has entered the history of his widest section, from being the first Arab to win the Oscar best actor.

On Sunday, Malek won the award at the 90th Oscar awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, United States, for his embodiment of the role of the main singer in the musical “Queen ” ensemble, the late Freddie Mercury, in the film “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

“I am the son of Egyptian immigrants, part of my biography now, and I am grateful to all the attendees here, and to everyone who believed in me, for the moment that I will be proud of my entire life,” Rami Malek said while delivering the acceptance letter, and in front of millions of followers around the world, to his Egyptian roots.

The owner also sent a letter to his mother expressing his love for her.

This is not the first time Rami Malek mentioned his Egyptian origins, and in an interview with him in 2017 by the BBC, “BBC “, Malek said in the Egyptian dialect: “My mother from Cairo and my parents from Upper Egypt emigrated to America, and they wanted their son to become a doctor or a lawyer, but The representation for them was not the greatest area I could go from their point of view, but after some successes, they became happy. “

As for his relationship with his roots and family in Egypt, Malek explained during the meeting: “I became a little famous, something proud of him, and my family in Egypt very happy with my success and try to communicate with me all the time in different forms, which is a distinctive feeling for me.”

Rami Malek ‘s artistic career began more than a decade ago, when he was an ambitious actor in his early twenties, working part-time on pizza delivery and making falafel sandwiches in Hollywood restaurants.

“I dreamed of working in Hollywood studios and not in their restaurants,” Malek told the Egyptian newspaper “Egypt independent ” In an interview in 2015, which was translated into English.

After graduating at the University of Evansville in Indiana in 2003, Malek returned to his hometown in Los Angeles and tried for about a year and a half to meet with Hollywood directors, although there was no agent to represent him, but he failed in his endeavors.

“There were times when I was depressed and I started to lose confidence, especially when I did not receive any responses to my CV, which sent a lot of copies to the directors of output and production, and working in a falafel shop with a university degree is not easy,” Malek said in a 2015 interview.

Rami Malek ‘s fortune remained stalled, until he finally got his first television role in 2004, in the series “Gilmore Guerles “.

The owner of the magazine “Glamour ” disclosed in 2018, that he was paying money for appearing in his first session in the “Gilmour gerles “, because he had to pay a fine of approximately $2,000 to appear in the series, because he did not get membership of the Union of Representatives. He says: “You have asked me to pay this price forever.”

In 2015, Rami Malek ‘s artistic breakthrough came from his heroism of “Mister Robot “, which deals with “hackers “, and was nominated for his role as the best television actor in the “Golden Globe ” ceremony twice in 2016 and 2017.

The owner of the first cheque in his life was charged for his participation in “Mr. Robot “, through which he repaid his loans as a student, re-emerging hope in the representative, and renewed with hopes to become a famous star.

After winning the Academy Award for his role in the film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Rami Malek Murad, who made an extraordinary effort to impersonate the gay singer, Freddie Mercury, achieved a high praise from critics and the public.
