With a larger-than-life aura, impeccable organisational skills and an acute eye for detail Malcolm Ellul could never shy away from a lens whether he was facing it, coordinating the background or putting it all together from a logistical perspective. Malcolm fits film work like a glove and has made it his passion from a tender age.
Career and family kept him in check for many years, but he still managed a 15 year stint in the industry with over 80 productions of varying budgets under his belt. From such blockbusters as Gladiator, Munich, Agora, WWZ and Skyfall, to popular TV series such as Game of Thrones, Come Un Delfino, Sinbad and Rex, Malcolm has rubbed shoulders with some of the industry’s greats including Stephen Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Russel Crowe, Brad Pitt, Rachel Weisz, Joaquin Phoenix, Stephen Fry, Oliver Reed, Raoul Bova, Mads Mikkelsen, Sean Bean and many others. In between Malcolm fills his time playing challenging roles in local dramas, shooting commercials and producing shorts. His current offerings include playing an ex-convict by the name of Alfred in the popular TV drama Katrina and the title role in The Maltese Fighter (trailer below). Malcolm’s wife Lisa and his 3 kids are also actively involved in the performing arts making drama pretty much a family affair.
Do you prefer women or cars? And why?
Cars. They do not get upset when you admire other cars and if you choose well the women will follow :-)
In your opinion what are the ingredients for world peace?
Goodwill and perseverance from all those who can make a change.
Are you a good cook? What is it that you make really well?
I am appreciative of fine cuisine and no stranger to the kitchen. My experimental lasagnes are worth a try. Never twice the same.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
Malcolm: The Man Behind The Mask. (Please do not ask me why).
What are your weaknesses?
I tend to care for people who do not give a sh** about me.
