Rami Malek Recalls 'Gun-to-the-Head Moment' When He Was Offered Freddie Mercury Role in 'Bohemian Rhapsody'


Rami Malek sat down with The Guardian on Monday (Oct. 15) for an interview about his upcoming function within the career-defining Bohemian Rhapsody biopic, through which he performs Queen frontman Freddy Mercury. 

A self-professed fan of Queen, the actor opened up about being provided the function of Mercury, calling it a "gun-to-the-head second."

Further describing his justification for taking over the enduring function, he defined, “I wish to assume if it’s a struggle or flight state of affairs, I’m going to struggle. The scariest endeavors that I’ve chosen to soak up my life have been probably the most fulfilling and rewarding. And this has confirmed to defend that equation.”

Ahead of the film's launch, Malek's efficiency as Mercury has obtained favorable critiques from movie critics who attended the movie's early showings.

Bohemian Rhapsody is about to reach in theaters within the United States on Nov. 2.
