Bohemian Rhapsody is a rock bio that gives insight of the making of the most legendary rock band of all time Queen. The movie has been number one ever since it was officially released worldwide and it absolutely blew away everyone.
Rami Malek and co-stars Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, and Joseph Mazzello revealed that a full-length version of the Live Aid show might get a release. “We did the entire concert together,” Malek said. “That’s when we felt at our best. You need to go from one song to the next to have that same adrenaline rush that they had. We had an audience of Queen fans out there recreating that iconic concert and it’s an adrenaline rush like you could never imagine.”
Malek transforms into the legendary rock star and nails several performance scenes.
Gwilym Lee – who plays Brian May – added: “We’d studied that footage endlessly in the lead-up to filming. I remember every time watching it just being mesmerised by the whole thing but particularly Freddie’s ability to engage 70,000 people at once. I remember the buzz of watching that footage on my little computer screen, studying, and then being on set that was perfectly replicated. Looking around and seeing everybody in full costume and make-up, seeing the incredible attention to detail… it was quite a surreal moment.”
Malek added: “We’re going to get to see it soon and then you will too.”
The real Live Aid performance
Rami Malek portrays Freddie Mercury in the movie and he and his co stars do the remake of Queen’s unforgettable 20-minute set at the 1985 fundraiser at the old Wembley Stadium.

Brian May and Gwilym Lee
In an interview Brian said: “I think about Freddie all the time, really. There certainly isn’t a day where I don’t have some sort of thought about him,” he said in a 2011 Telegraph interview. “I have been to the extremes, where I have found it very painful, and I couldn’t talk about him. But I don’t feel that any more. He’s part of our lives, still, in a very real way.”

“All my lovers asked me why they couldn’t replace Mary, but it’s simply impossible,” Mercury said in a 1985 interview. “The only friend I’ve got is Mary, and I don’t want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that’s enough for me.”
