With the closure of the cinemas, all films to be released this year were postponed. Moreover, some of these films began to be postponed to the first or second half of 2021.
The last movie of the James Bond series, No Time To Die, was affected by this situation like all films and could not be released due to the pandemic.
The film’s release date had to be postponed five times, and Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek made new statements about his character, Safin, and shared his feelings about him.
The final release date was set as April 2021 and in this film, we will see Daniel Craig as James Bond for the last time. Also, the fact that a successful actor like Rami Malek is playing the villain character of the film raises expectations.
Rami Malek explained that Safin was a psychologically difficult role to play. The actor who described Safin as a frightening character also added that he had an unnerving and unsettling side. Expressing that he is a character who makes you ask what evil really means, the actor explained that the ruthless side of the character may be due to an incident that happened to him.
Here’s what he said:
“When I think about Safin I think about someone who is meticulous but measured, and there is something about that that is really unnerving and unsettling. He’s someone that at times I feel gives you the sensation that you’re being watched and that again is quite unsettling.
He asks you to question what you think is right, what you think is wrong and is your interpretation of those two things as accurate as it seems to be. I think you start asking questions about what evil is.
And with this character especially I find him fascinating because he can detach from empathy in order to meticulously carry out his will and I start to wrap myself up in who that person is psychologically. He’s ruthless and that might be – I’m in danger of giving too much away here – a result of something that’s happened to him. but even acknowledging that taps into the analytical side of him as well.
I think the fact that he can still find a way to appreciate his own evil is something that is quite petrifying and psychologically something that was not easy for me to tap into.”
