Every Bond film since the franchise began in 1962, starring Sean Connery as 007, has featured Bond’s memorable lead actress and villain.
In the latest episode, No Time To Die, Oscar-winning actor Rami acts as Bond’s new adversary and plays Lyutsifer Safin, a terrorist leader on a revenge mission.

In No Time To Die, Malek seems to have stepped seamlessly into the role of the villain as Safin, a mysterious figure linked to the past of Lea Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann, who really takes on the role of Bond.
While trying to find the inner core of his character, his humanity, Malek pondered how there could be a resemblance between Bond and his opponent.
“With Safin, I thought, ‘Okay, I’ll find a way to really sympathize and empathize with this man and maybe make the public fall in love with him because they can empathize with his pain,'” he revealed. during an interview with rich.
“But there’s something so dark, evil, and sinister about him that I just had to remove myself from him and say, ‘Thankfully, this isn’t part of my DNA, and I can just turn into someone I don’t have to take anything from. and just make something exciting to bring to Daniel and 007.”
