How Rami Malek became Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody

How did Rami Malek get himself ready to become a rock legend?

Rami Malek shares how he transformed into Freddie Mercury. Watch the new video that contains additional scenes from the upcoming Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Lots of practice, grooming, and even hiring a movement coach helped transform Rami into Queen frontman Freddie.

Queen released a video via Youtube featuring new scenes as well as interviews with the cast and producer Graham King.

An accompanying statement read:

“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.”

Bohemian Rhapsody opens in theaters on Nov. 2.
