The Egyptian-born actor’s popularity took a dramatic leap forward after his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody”; even more so after winning the Golden Globe for Best Lead Actor in a Drama. Let’s find out more about Rami Malek.
How Tall Is Rami Malek?
The actor is 1.75 centimeters tall, a little shorter than Freddie Mercury. Two centimeters less, to be precise. The ideal height to play him in the biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”, winner of the Golden Globe for Best Drama. And we saw that the similarity between the two wasn’t just about height.
Rami Malek has studied hard to step into the role of the leader of Queen, trying to assimilate everything about his bearing, his gestures, his way of being on stage. A video comparing Queen’s real performance at Live Aid and the scene played in Bryan Singer’s film clearly shows Malek’s degree of perfection in his performance. “I will not be but him but I will try to honor him”. And we think he did.
It is customary for the actors to take home some memories of the set. And Rami Malek respected tradition.
In the course of a recent interview, he revealed that he has taken away numerous items and has no intention of returning them: he will be doing a charity auction. Among all the stages teeth stand out. Yes, Rami Malek has decided to keep the false teeth used to reproduce the very showy teeth of Mercury. Not only. He had them covered with gold. The reason? He believes that such a flashy choice fully reflects the spirit of Freddie Mercury.
What happened with Nicole Kidman?
The press spoke of a “fool”. But what really happened between the two actors? As often happens, the incident was particularly “inflated” to make a bit of a fuss.
Basically, on the occasion of the delivery of the Golden Globe, Malek tried to say goodbye to Kidman – the two have known each other for a long time – but she ignored him. Or at least it seemed and has been told, like this. Subsequently, the actress said she was “mortified” by what happened.
Galeotto was that set… Like many other colleagues before them and like many others there will be, Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton have also become a couple in real life.
She, in the film, plays Mary Austin, Freddie Mercury’s great love. The rumors about their relationship had started well before the formalization, which arrived just before the Golden Globe ceremony, where they appeared very much in love.
In addition to “Bohemian Rhapsody,” he starred in “Miss Potter”, “Lock-In” , “Murder on the Orient Express”, “Apostle”.
