'No Time to Die': Rami Malek introduces his 'unsettling' villain in new teaser
UPI News Service, 09/14/2020
No Time to Die star Rami Malek is introducing the "unsettling" villain he plays in the new movie.
The 39-year-old actor shared details about his character, Safin, in a preview for the James Bond film released Monday.
The teaser features a clip from No Time to Die that shows Safin (Malek) presenting Dr. Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux) with a broken mask. Swann tells Bond (Daniel Craig) that Safin is seeking "revenge."
"What I really wanted from Safin was to make him unsettling," Malek said in the preview. "Thinking of himself as being heroic."
"What he wants, and what he's willing to do, makes him a very frightening character, both personally to Bond but also on a global level," director Cary Joji Fukunaga added.
In another scene from the film, Safin compares himself to Bond.
"We both eradicate people to make the world a better place. I just want to be a little tidier," the character says.
Malek said Safin will prove "a formidable adversary" to Bond, who must adapt to the villain.
