Malek talked to The New York Times about his experience doing the film, the pressure he feels and how big of a deal it was for him playing the iconic rock singer. “It’s not lost on me that this could go terribly wrong, that it could be detrimental to one’s career should this not go the right way”. The actor added: “Why would you want to alter anyone’s perception of their hero?”
The Mr. Robot actor has impressed quite a lot of people with his complete transformation as Queen singer Freddie Mercury, with some even saying he looks totally like Mr. Fahrenheit himself.
