I imagine taking on a role like Freddie Mercury would be no easy task for any actor, but Rami Malek was up for the challenge! He really wanted this role in Bohemian Rhapsody and he completely dove into it to bring Mercury to life in the best way he possibly could.
We have a fantastic new featurette for the film for you to check out today that puts the focus on Malek’s drastic transformation into the legendary musician. It’s pretty incredible to see and hear what he went through to prepare for this role, and it looks like it’s all going to pay off.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
