It’s got to be worse if its a band as loved as Queen, and even more so if the living members are there to protect their image. Rami Malek, Gwilym Lee, and Ben Hardy knew that but also knew if they did a good job they would go down as legends.
In the above interview, Ben Hardy tells us how the script made him more excited to be part of the project, Gwilym Lee knew from the beginning how much of an opportunity playing Brian May would be as well as when he got to meet the legendary guitarist, Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor tell us why they finally said yes to a Queen movie, and Rami Malek tells us about learning how big Queen was, how to portray Freddie Mercury, and what he wants audiences to take from watching the film.
