Rami Malek tries to play it cool whenever he comes face-to-face with a member of the royal family. The actor has met Prince William and Kate Middleton before, but he had the opportunity to chat with them again when the Cambridges attended the September 28 premiere of his new movie, No Time to Die.
"For me, I just try to treat them like I would anybody else," the star told Entertainment Tonight. "I'm sure a dose of normality is probably something that is quite refreshing to them."
"I remember we were at the BAFTAS, and I met them and they have a lot of questions to ask you," the Mr. Robot lead explained. "But it is nice to just say, 'How are you doing? How are you dealing with all of this? I know you just had kids, one kid, specifically...' so just try to be normal because they live a very unusual life, I imagine."
The Emmy winner revealed he sat behind the parents-of-three at the London movie screening.
"I got to gage their reaction from their body language," he noted. "Definitely not going to put words in their mouths, but yeah, they seemed pretty taken aback by the film."
Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla also attended the movie premiere.
Though it was a fun night out for the royals, the event was also put on for charity.
"Wonderful to see @007 back on our big screens! 🎬," the Cambridge's Instagram account wrote. "Tonight’s world premiere will benefit charities supporting serving and former members of the three intelligence agencies: the Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service, and @gchq."
Despite several stars like Daniel Craig and Judi Dench attending the premiere, onlookers declared that it was Kate who stole the spotlight.
"Kate managed to eclipse an entire red carpet of Bond stars at their premiere last night," body language expert Judi James wrote for The Mirror. "A dress like that requires confidence and elegance to do it justice and, with no bag in her hands to clutch at, Kate more than did it justice, walking the length of the carpet with her arms hanging at her sides and only joining her hands with a light touch of the fingers when she stopped to speak to and laugh with her hosts."
