Hollywood icon Rami Malek, best known for his roles in hit films like Bohemian Rhapsody and No Time To Die, has a ‘secret’ identical twin brother who leads a very different life.
And the two look so alike that people close to them have struggled to tell them apart.
His twin brother Sami has decided to live a life away from the spotlight, and has instead chosen to go after a career in education while Rami makes his mark on Hollywood.
But Rami’s acting career has come in handy for Sami over the years – especially while he was studying at UCLA.
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel back in 2015, Rami explained how Sami needed extra credit to pass a class – and had to act out a monologue from a Greek tragedy in order to improve his grades.
There was only one problem with the plan – Sami, unlike his brother, couldn’t act.
Rami explained: “He calls me one day and goes, 'Hey, do you know a Greek monologue from a Greek tragedy?'
"Yeah, of course, I've just been doing this for four years. He goes, 'Listen, I need you to come down to my university' – I need you to do this for my class. It's gonna give me the points I need."
"I go, 'Yeah I'm gonna get my points and we're gonna make this happen.'
"And I deliver this monologue in front of the entire lecture hall and I get a few [bits of] applause, people dig it. And I think she starts looking at me kind of accusatorially, like, 'Where the hell did you come up with that?'
"I told her, 'Er, it's just a hobby.'"
Sami now works as an English teacher at the STEM Academy of Hollywood – so he can stick close to his brother. The two regularly appear at various glamorous events together, and have blown fans away with their similarities.
According to his bio on the academy’s website, Rami double majored in American Literature & Culture and African-American Studies in college.
He began his teaching career through Teach for America – a non-profit organisation to "grow the movement for educational equity and excellence".
Taking to Twitter, one fan couldn’t resist posting: "I feel like not enough people know about Rami Malek's hot, bearded, teacher identical twin brother. Just trying to educate."
"Found out today that Rami Malek has an identical twin named Sami Malek and I’m delighted," someone else penned.
As another fan followed up: "I was today years old when I found out that Rami Malek has a twin!"
