Actor Rami Malek spoke in an interview with The Independent.ie and expressed how he feels about portraying Queen’s Freddie Mercury.
He said that “this was an honour”. Here’s the statement:
“It was an immense responsibility for me. I felt like I was running on a highly confident level at times.
This was an honour to portray Freddie Mercury, and there was a certain amount of justice that you have to give to the man in order to portray him, or portray the band. So I wanted to go to work with the highest level of functioning capability I could.
So we all raised our games, day in and day out. And I appreciated taking a leadership responsibility, because that’s what Freddie would have done.”

A week ago, he spoke in another interview with Who and revealed what he feels about the Queen’s movie “Bohemian Rhapsody”. He said:
“You see him on stage and then almost instinctually I’d want to discover more. There’s just an eloquence and elegance to him that you see when he’s on stage – and then you can see where all that was birthed from.
I mean, not many artists are wearing an entire head-to-toe leather outfit, sipping a champagne flute and telling their audience to strip naked if they please. And he still comes off with this essence of royalty.
I could delve deeper into the his relationships. I just kept pushing for more of that aspect of his life. I don’t know if we ever felt fulfilled by it.”
