Playing the voice of Queen, Freddie Mercury, is a challenge for an actor, but doing it as well as possible was the goal set by Rami Malek. The actor, previously known for his work on Mr. Robot, has revealed the pressure he feels at just under two months of its release. "I have that idea that this could go terribly wrong, that it could be detrimental to my own career if it were not well done," the 37-year-old actor told The New York Times. In this same conversation, Malek indicated that, to give life to this character, he had analyzed the references that had the leader of Queen, such as Jimi Hendrix, Liza Minnelli and David Bowie. "It was very useful for me to see these references, rather than see Freddie himself," he said. According to Rami Malek, this film, which will hit theaters on November 1, gives a complete overview of Mercury's life. He also spoke of the criticism of those who say that the film leaves aside the artist's sexuality. "First of all, let me tell you that the film does not move away from sexuality or its disease. I do not understand how you could avoid talking about it or if someone wanted to do it. It's a bit absurd to play the film for a minute of a trailer, "he concluded.
