He’s a brilliant actor and a handsome fella, but the most resounding part of his Emmy win and of his boom in the TV world in general is : he, a man of color whom very few people knew before Mr. Robot, made a name for himself through a great tv show where he is the lead role. Not a side-kick, not an antagonist, not a white protagonist’s love interest or best friend who helps them through everything then gets killed for dramatic purposes, no : he is the main. freaking. role. Everything revolves around Eliot and this tv show is also fortunately great enough that this representation does not go unnoticed.I am still salty about the fact that they gave the protagonist a Western-sounding name quite clearly to make it more relatable, but baby steps : let’s at least appreciate the fact that this talented, humble, beautiful man of Egyptian descent has managed to land a main role in a perfect show where he is portrayed with extreme depth, where he suffers from mental health issues that are dealt with seriously, where his ethnicity is not conditioning him to any specific single box whatsoever, where he is in short portrayed as a real. person. The more we get people like Rami Malek on the front line, the more the world and the industry in general might actually understand that people of color are just as capable of being relatable and charismatic as anybody else.
I’ll end my rant here. Conclusion is : things can change and they will.
