Rami Malek told Bohemian Rhapsody producers who were not ready to play Freddie Mercury.
Indeed, the actor had consented to not knowing how to sing and be a very bad dancer.
"We mentioned for six hours, and Graham King (film producer) saw me in Mr Robot, where I played an isolated person, socially concerned, but he saw something in me and with Dennis O Sullivan, gave me an opportunity, "he said to Deadline.
And the actor was honest at the beginning: "I told them," Listen, I'm not a singer. I do not play piano. I'm moving interestingly on the dance floor, but I would not say I'm a rhythm, "he told them.
However, he learned what was needed to carry out his role, including taking classes.
"I just tell them, by giving me the time, I'll get there. If I got help, as with singing, piano, dancing and wording lessons, it'll be fine," he said. And as we saw, he paid his efforts, even impressed Brian May, the Queen's guitarist. "It's amazing," he said. It will undoubtedly be nominated for the Oscars. Freddie lost how much I saw Freddie. "
