Rami Malek made a new interview with Sunday – Daily Express and made a bizarre statement about how Freddie Mercury stared at him like ‘Don’t do it!’
Here is what Malek told Stephen Colbert about the early meeting he had with the producers:
“I went to do some pre-recording and it was at Abbey Road – I was a little late, London traffic, whatever.
I was running across the street and I look back and it’s the iconic crosswalk that the Beatles have the album cover on… and instantly I’m like, ‘what the hell is happening to me right now?’
I race up the stairs, the meeting is on the fourth floor. “And around the third floor, I’m passing by all these photos of bands that you love, and suddenly I stop – and I’m like, ‘what are you doing, you’re late, you shouldn’t stop right now?”
“And I take two steps back and I see this autographed photo of all the members of Queen. Freddie Mercury’s face just kind of staring at me – telling me, ‘don’t do this! It was a challenge. I kind of looked back, and I said, ‘no… no…’ – it really felt inspiring! But it definitely was that look of, ‘don’t f*ck this up!”
