Behind the scenes footage of Mr. Robot actor Rami Malek portraying Freddie Mercury on the set of the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody has leaked. In the video, Malek is seen perfectly mimicking Mercury's iconic on stage movements as they recreate Queen's legendary 1985 Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in London. Malek, as Mercury, hypes the crowd up before sitting down at a piano to perform "Bohemian Rhapsody."
A particularly striking photo shows Queen guitarist Brian May watching the shoot with a smile on his face. The members of Queen serve as executive producers of the film. The first look received incredibly positive feedback which showed Malek looking exactly like the late singer.
