“Graham told me” Buddy, it took me eight years, we have time “,” remembers Malek who was the final in today’s Deadline Contenders at the New York City DGA Theater.
And while Malek threw himself into watching and listening to everything from Mercury, from concert play to interviews, to working with a dialect coach and motion coach Polly Bennett, speaking with band members Brian May and Roger Taylor; All prep led to the first day of shooting, and the first sequence taken first was the famous Live Aid 22-minute climax, considered by many queen authorities to be the top of Mercury’s career. Editor John Ottman told us that it was Bohemian Rhapsody the “Death Star” scene, and one that has to be dealt with completely or the whole movie would fall apart.
“I was a little prepared, but no one can ever prepare you for what that feeling was,” says Malek about the first production day of Bohemian Rhapsody “What anyone considers to be the greatest achievement in mountain history was a challenge . I said, “What the hell they built the scene, let’s do this.” “
Day 1 brought a massive broad crumb of the audience and came around and had Malek perform” Bohemian Rhapsody “on the piano. ” It was supposed to be a day of rehearsal but everyone was in costume so I was very suspicious “said Malek laughing from the NY Contenders crowd.
” I had some confidence to work on long shots on Mr. Robot that gave me the opportunity to calm me, “explains Malek,” It was sinking or swimming, a baptism in fire: Day 1 was “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Day 2 was “Radio Gaga” … “
But throughout the Live Aid shot, there was a lot of start and finish, which gave Malek some concern to recreate the magic queen that was experienced on the concert day.
Then he asked King for a favor: One day to shoot the Live Aid concert, and production would postpone performance from start to finish without a stop.
“The whole concert in big champion”, said Malek. “We took three cranes with cameras and ran all 22 minutes, it was the best we ever did . You drive on pure adrenaline. My heart pounds just thinking about it (the experience). “
” You realize how much adrenaline crossed through his veins before 75,000 people, “adds the actor.
” I really love to act, “said Malek before colliding.” To add this rock star, it feels like being on drugs. “
Bohemian Rhapsody from 20th Century Fox and New Regency is currently in theaters and is set to cross half billion at the global box office.
