Malek's Bond terrorist 'not driven by religion'
Rami Malek has revealed he only agreed to play a James Bond villain after he was assured the character would have no religious or ideological affiliations. "I said, 'We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or religion,'" said the actor. "'That's not something I would entertain, so if that is why I am your choice then you can count me out.'" Malek, who is of Egyptian descent, won an Oscar for playing Queen singer Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.
