The movie Bohemian Rhapsody has become a certified hit in the country, with the Bohemian Rhapsody cast being one of the biggest reasons for its success.
But how does the Bohemian Rhapsody movie cast compare with their real-life counterparts?
KAMI presents to you a comparison between them!
Bohemian Rhapsody cast # 1: Freddie Mercury - played by actor Rami Malek
Imitating Freddie Mercury's signature look and rocking moves, Rami Malek, who also starred in movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, has undeniably nailed it! Good thing he was chosen to be one of the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' movie cast. Critics are already predicting that Malek has a good chance of getting a nomination come Oscar night! The Bohemian Rhapsody cast 2018 would surely be proud of him if that happens. Mercury would surely have loved Malek's epic performance if he was alive today.
Here is Malek's thoughts about the movie, according to The Guardian:
“What’s the nature of celebrating a life? Definitely not avoiding his death in any way, or what caused his death, which is the Aids virus. But I think if you don’t celebrate his life, and his struggles, and how complicated he was, and how transformative he was – and wallow instead in the sadness of what he endured and his ultimate death – then that could be a disservice to the profound, vibrant, radiant nature of such an indelible human being.”
Bohemian Rhapsody cast # 2: Roger Taylor – played by actor Ben Hardy
One of the standouts among the Bohemian Rhapsody cast members is Ben Hardy. His facial features really have a resemblance to Roger Taylor's and it's indisputable. Not to mention putting on a wig made it even more convincing. Hardy played the character of Archangel in X-Men: Apocalypse, who was a villain in the Marvel superhero movie.
He shared his thoughts about how he got the part in this interview with ITV’s This Morning: "I was a little bit naughty, actually – I told them I could play the drums [when I couldn’t]. That’s what they say, isn’t it – 'just tell them you can do it and work it out later!'"
Turned out that he had to fake knowing how to play the drums in order to get the high-profile role in this huge movie! Good thing he was motivated enough to actually learn playing it once he got the part.
Bohemian Rhapsody cast # 3: Brian May – played by actor Gwilym Lee
The dashing charisma of Brian May, especially with his guitar, seemed to work on The Last Witness star, Gwilym Lee. It's safe to say that he's a good choice to be one of the Bohemian Rhapsody cast and crew.
Bohemian Rhapsody cast # 4: John Deacon – played by actor Joseph Mazzello
Joseph Mazzello, who appeared in some movies like The Social Network, has the definite face for the role of the stunning John Deacon. Joseph himself posted it on his social media account. It's not just the look but his aura as well! Aside from The Social Network, he was also a part of The Pacific, the companion series of Band of Brothers.
Bohemian Rhapsody cast # 5: Mary Austin – Lucy Boynton
Aside from the Queen members, the Bohemian Rhapsody cast and crew made sure to pick the most ideal person to represent Mary Austin, the former fiancée of Freddie Mercury. It is Lucy Boynton who's equally stunning and who also became part of movies like in Copperhead (2013), Sing Street (2016), Murder on the Orient Express (2017) and Apostle (2018).
"You realize at the center of all of that was just a very profound and solid love and respect for each other, and that was able to be the vehicle for everything else, for every avenue that their. I have taken a lot from that and I hope the audience does, as well. The understanding that if you do have that very solid and strong foundation, you don't really need to define your love or define your relationship," Boynton said, according to Digital Spy.
Seems like the Bohemian Rhapsody cast has done a great job. Each one of them has given justice to their roles and made the film more compelling to the viewers! Without this brilliant cast, the movie wouldn't have worked at all. So congrats to all of the people involved with the movie. May they be remembered during the awards season.
