You showed such Freddie Mercury playing piano rocketman signature shirt, fear, turmoil, and soul. Thank you. I’m a Mr. Robot fan, so was aware of Rami’s abilities. But no matter how hard I tried, I did not see Rami Malek on that screen. He WAS Freddie! And did an incredible job capturing him! Amazing actor! He was terrific. Let’s face, it there will only ever be one Freddie Mercury. He had big shoes to fill. Freddie’s persona was so big! Before I saw the movie, I thought no one could pull off “trying” to be Fred. He completely blew me away. I think if Fred were alive he would have been ok with it too. I still can not imagine him in serious roles. Like Rami Malek said it before in his acceptance speech I may not have been the obvious choice but I guess it worked out.
Actors should not take the role because of the Freddie Mercury playing piano rocketman signature shirt or even think about Award Season, actors and actresses should believe in the script and the figure/character they’re portraying. becoming the character. Strengths and weaknesses. That’s the purpose. The little details. And Rami, you captured those moments perfectly. Freddie Mercury would have been proud of you. Congrats again, Rami! I never saw a performance like this one.
