Rami Malek finding it hard to let Queen role go
RAMI MALEK says he’s moving to London after explaining he now feels like a full-time member of Queen.
The LA-born actor, who played Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, says he is finding it hard to leave the role behind.
With his girlfriend — and Rhapsody co-star — Lucy Boynton, 25, cheering him on at the Baftas, Rami said: ‘Shooting here was quite honestly one of the best things I have done in my life.’ He added he had fallen in love with London ‘to a point where I am now looking for a place to live here’.
Ready to be a full-time frontman after recreating scenes from Live Aid, he went on: ‘It’s quite funny, we call it our own band now. Beginning the film with Live Aid was a baptism of fire. We just galvanised ourselves as a group. That was it.’
Rami, 37, was joined on the Baftas red carpet last night by Will Poulter, Lily Collins, Riz Ahmed and Mary J Blige.
