You probably know Tia and Tamera Mowry, the Olsen twins (Ashley and Mary-Kate), Jon and Dan Heder and Dylan and Cole Sprouse, who together became famous as siblings in Hollywood. But did you know that there are several other prominent twins in the US film industry whose counterparts live very far from the limelight? Rami Malek, the twin brother of Sami Malek, is one of these stars.
For so many years Rami has been in the spotlight because of the way he works. As he is a very talented actor, his performance on screen has not only earned him a large fan base on social media platforms, but also a broad media echo and an international audience. Sami on the other hand is not the type of man who likes the camera. He is known for two things – he is Rami’s twin and a school teacher.
The Malek brothers are identical twins. Even though Rami enjoys most of the media and public attention, his brother is an impressive guy. Sami works as a teacher at the Joseph Le Conte Middle School, which is located in Los Angeles.
Sami Malek’s Bio
Sami Malek was born on May 12, 1981, together with his twin brother from his parents on May 12, 1981. He has American citizenship and Egyptian roots. As far as his academic achievements are concerned, Sami still has to tell us which schools he has attended and when he actually graduated. As described in detail in his online profile, his twin brother studied at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, and later at the University of Evansville in Indiana. He graduated in 2003 with a degree in fine arts. It is not known whether Sami attended the same educational institutions as his famous brother.
If there is one thing that is obvious about Sami’s brother, it is that he loves his teaching and enjoys every moment of it. Even though people may think that the actor influences life more than his twin, the fact remains that both are relevant in their respective professions and we are happy for them.
Family – Parents and Sister
Sami’s family consists of his parents, his twin brother, and his older sister. The names of his parents are Nelly Abdelmalek (mother) and Said Malek (father). Both are of Egyptian origin and also of Coptic Orthodox faith. They emigrated to the United States of America many years ago. Said Malek served as a tour guide in Cairo, after which he switched to the insurance industry. He was born in 1942 and died in 2006. His wife, Nelly, is a renowned accountant.
The teacher at Joseph Le Conte Middle School has an older sister named Yasmine Malek. The doctor Yasmine Malek is not known as her brother, the actor. She keeps out of the limelight but is very supportive of her younger brothers’ careers. The last member of Sami’s family is Rami, the ever-impressive Hollywood star who has won about three prestigious awards for herself, including the Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding leading actors in a drama series (at the age of 18) and the Critics’ Choice Award.
Relationship With Rami Malek
Sami and Rami Malek are not only brothers, they are twins, although the latter is four minutes older than the former. Even though the Malek brothers pursue two different career paths, they support their respective professions. Despite their demanding profession, the brothers are often seen together at public events – they obviously stand up for each other.
Rami stormed the film industry in 2004, a year after he graduated from the University of Evansville, Indiana. He made his first appearance on the big screen in 2004 in the television series Gilmore Girls, where he appeared as Andy. To date, he has directed more than 17 movies and ten television series, with Mr. Robot being the most notable of them.
In addition to his critical acclaim and the Primetime Emmy Awards, Rami has received nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Award, the TCA Award, and the Golden Globe Award. His greatest role in Hollywood is played by the fictional character Freddie Mercury, the iconic lead singer of the music band Queen, in the drama/biography film Bohemian Rhapsody (2018). Freddie died in 1991 at the age of 45 of bronchopneumonia due to AIDS.
In addition to his projects in the film industry, Sami Malek’s twin brother Rami is involved in the gaming community. His video game lectures include Until the Dawn (2015), The Legend of Korra (2014), and Halo 2 (2004).
