In a recent interview, Rami Malek spoke about some of the challenges he faced while recording his dialogues for “Mr. Robot" using an earwig.
Malek (Elliot Alderson) said in the interview with Vulture that that he tried recording his dialogues with show creator Sam Esmail while speaking to him through the earwig. The actor apparently felt “dumbfounded” at that time because the voice of Esmail appeared to be “omnipresent” to him while filming.
“That was the first Elliot moment where he addresses the audience and it came out of sheer duress,” Malek said. The actor had Esmail replaced with Sarah Block, after a quick audition on the set, to be the new voice. The actor felt that he had always imagined the voice in his head to be a female voice, and he “gravitated” towards a female voice because he could be his “honest self” with it.
Nine episodes of “Mr. Robot” have already aired and the finale episode of the first season will air on Aug 26. A promo video of episode 10 posted on the official YouTube channel of the show reveals that Elliot has planned something big for Evil Corp.
The video shows a new warning by the hacker group FSociety stating that the next stock market’s opening bell will be the “death knell” of Evil Corp. People can be seen protesting against the company on the streets, wearing a similar mask that is seen in the warning message.
Elliot still appears to have not recovered from his mental problems and his concerned sister Darlene (Carly Chaikin) can be seen asking where he has been. Elliot’s hallucination of his father continues and the character appears to be enjoying the possible downfall of Evil Corp.
The fall of Evil Corp will have adverse consequences for Allsafe Cybersecurity Company headed by Gideon Goddard (Michel Gill.) Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom) on the other hand had offered to help Elliot in his plan in the previous episode of “Mr. Robot” and maybe keen to see the fall of his former company.
