All About Rami Malek's Twin Brother Sami Malek

Rami Malek was born on May 12, 1981, in Los Angeles to Egyptian immigrant parents. He grew up in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood and spoke Egyptian Arabic at home until he was 4 years old. His identical twin brother, Sami, is a teacher while his older sister, Yasmine, is an ER doctor.

Throughout his childhood, Malek was passionate about musical theater and took a class at Notre Dame High School alongside Rachel Bilson and Kirsten Dunst. However, Malek’s parents encouraged him to pursue law, so he joined the debate team, where he delivered passionate arguments and dramatic interpretations that led his instructor to guide him toward acting. He starred in a one-man play that brought his parents to tears and reaffirmed his desire to become an actor.
