I am chatting with Christian Slater and Rami Malek to talk all things ‘Mr. Robot’, my fave show on TV.
I think I have this covered, but if any of you have any great questions you want me to ask, please post them here and I will choose the really good ones 🙂November 23, 2015 at 7:55 pm #365653
What are they going to submit for the Emmys? What drew Slater to basic cable? What’s in store for next season!November 23, 2015 at 8:27 pm #365654
For Rami, was it difficult to shoot the scene in the finale in time square? It is never empty like that! Was is done in the editing room or did you pull a miracle finding a way to block off time square?November 24, 2015 at 1:10 pm #365655
Can rami follow my twitter please? @elliemalekNovember 24, 2015 at 1:11 pm #365656
Can rami relate to Elliot in any ways?November 24, 2015 at 2:05 pm #365657
The show is exceptionally well made and although I don’t believe USA has ever gotten into the directing category before who knows what can happen now that past Emmy patterns are starting to quickly erode. Do the showrunners have a strategy for Emmy submissions in that category (and if not can you strongly suggest that they enter ONLY ONE episode – The Pilot?).
Also have they given any thought to their acting submissions aside from Slater and Malek? I would love to see B.D. Wong pop up in guest for example.November 24, 2015 at 3:16 pm #365658
Rami, do you believe Tyrell to be part of Elliot’s hallucinations? I’ve seen many fan theories and I’d like to know what you think.

For both, what part of your character do you find most and intriguing and what are you most interested to see develop in them? Also, at what times was it difficult to get inside your characters’ head and understand what they were feeling? Thank you!
-Elliot (P.S, thanks to the show I’m finally comfortable with my name thank youu)November 24, 2015 at 3:28 pm #365660
Rami, what is it like working with a dog on set? Also, how important do you think that portraying realistic mental illness in television/film is, and how underrepresented do you think that both mentally ill and non-white characters are in media?
-Olivia 🙂November 24, 2015 at 3:28 pm #365661
Can Rami discuss his preparation for and performance of the nearly two-minute-long dialogueless scene following his discovery of Shayla’s body at the end of episode 6 – eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf?November 24, 2015 at 3:37 pm #365662
Was there any scenes that either of you didn’t enjoy filming or found pointless to the plot? Do you have a least favourite episode or scene and for what reasons?
Rami, could you relate to the mental side of Elliot easily, ie the depression/hallucinations/social anxiety, or did you have to strongly prepare yourself for those moments?

These are for Rami and Christian:
How do you guys prepare for these powerful scenes? I know being an actor can be demanding so what do you guys like to do to get into character before shooting?
Also, what scenes were the hardest or most challenging to film and why? Were there any scenes that you had fun filming or wish you could do again? And what are you guys hoping for in Season Two of Mr. Robot?
Thanks for reading!!
P.S I abolutely love you guys 🙂November 24, 2015 at 3:51 pm #365664
What was a turning point for each of them in their understanding/performance of their characters? Whether it be something Sam said, the filming of a scene, a piece of research, etc.
Lots of love and respect from a kiwi fan! ð³ð¿

First off, both of you guys are amazing. I love all of your roles in all the different movies/shows.
Okay I have a question for rami, is it hard to portray a character who is depressed/ angry with society while you yourself are outgoing and happy?(from what I’ve read in interviews). Or is it a good way to let out some of your frustrations?
And for Christian, how do you feel about playing a character that is another characters hallucination? Because I haven’t seen that happen very often in movies, let alone TV.
I don’t know if you’ll answer my questions, but thanks! I love the show, can’t wait for the new season.November 24, 2015 at 4:01 pm #365666
@ Rami: What has it been like as your recognition has grown with the recognition of the show? How has it been for your identical twin, Sami Malek?
(Speaking of which, ayy Sami!)
@ Christian: Your image to the public was really set early in your career with the types of roles you portrayed. Do you feel like that affected your working career later on? With the types of roles you’ve been offered.
