The new trailer gives hints about Safin’s mission. In the clip, the villain is seen coming face to face with Madeleine Swann, essayed by Lea Seydoux.
“I am a man willing to kill the person you love most,” Safin tells Swann, to which she responds: “I’ve already lost everybody I ever loved.”
Malek also shared some information about the character, as he says: “What I really wanted from Safin was to make him unsettling — thinking of himself as being heroic.”
“Safin is a formidable adversary. James Bond has to adapt to him,” Malek added, without giving away too much.
At one point in the video, Safin is seen telling Bond: “We both eradicate people to make the world a better place. I just want to be a little tidier.” The line gives a major hint about the intentions behind his evil doings.
Explaining the character, director Cary Joji Fukunaga said: “What he wants and what he is willing to do, makes him a very frightening character, both personally to Bond and on a global level.”
