Rami Malek sad­dened by Mr. Robot end­ing

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Rami Malek is “so sad”

Mr. Robot, the TV se­ries that made him fa­mous, is com­ing to an end. The show be­gan in 2015 and led to him land­ing his Os­car-win­ning role as Queen’s Fred­die Mer­cury in Bo­hemian

Rhap­sody, but now it’s com­ing to a close with the fourth and fi­nal sea­son launch­ing on Oct. 6.

and Malek isn’t ready to say farewell to his tech nerd al­ter ego. “he (el­liot alder­son) has been a char­ac­ter that has hit me in my heart and af­fected so many peo­ple over the years all over the world — a guy who’s alien­ated, os­tra­cized, suf­fer­ing with a lot of is­sues, and some­how found it in him to say, ‘I can change the world’, ” he told Live with Kelly and Ryan.

“so he has had a last­ing ef­fect on me and hope­fully the world at large.”

There are some things he won’t miss, though — like the out­fit he wore for al­most ev­ery episode. “I got to wear the same cos­tume ev­ery day on that show,” he laughed. “I packed up all my stuff (when film­ing ended) and sent ev­ery­thing to my mum’s house. she ... took out the hoodie from Mr. Robot.

It had a patina to it, holes, and wear and tear. and she goes, ‘here, honey, I’ve cleaned it up for you.’ and she had sewn ev­ery­thing ... adorable! I could only smile.”
