What Do Queen Members Think About The Film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’?

Published

on

With the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, fans got to see the heartbreaking story of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. As expected, Queen fans are a bit split with the singer’s portrayal. While fans have their issues, the most important question to ask is “What does the band think?”

Is This The Real Life?

When it comes to the film, the remaining members of Queen seem to enjoy it. Drummer Roger Taylor told Flicks And The City, “After a couple of watchings, viewings, I mean you just start to completely believe, ‘Oh that was us.’ No, no it’s not. It’s other people, but phenomenal.”

Taylor is portrayed by Ben Hardy, who is best known for his work on British soap opera EastEnders.

Don’t Stop Me Now

Guitarist Brian May had a rough time when it came to getting this film off the ground. “We were a little reluctant in the beginning because it’s difficult to do a film that would do Freddie justice and what happened over the years — because it was suggested to us a lot — what happened over the years is that we realized if we didn’t get involved then somebody else would do it and then you wouldn’t be able to protect Freddie’s kind of legacy,” he also told Flicks And The City.

In the film, May is played by Gwilym Lee, who appeared in the drama Midsomer Murders. When it comes to Lee’s performance, May gives him two thumbs up. “I do kind of believe he’s me, and I think, ‘What have you done there? Oh no, it’s him,” he said.

We Are The Champions

May and Taylor were both consultants for the movie, which meant spending a lot of time on set. When it came to the Live Aid segment, they were completely in awe. “It just sent shivers up your spine because the recreation was so perfect of the venue and everything about it, including the backstage,” May stated.

Recently, Bohemian Rhapsody earned Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama for Rami Malek.
