Rami Malek, the lead in Bohemian Rhapsody about the life of Queen singer Freddie Mercury, recently revealed that he went on a diet to play the role of the band’s celebrated frontman.
His performance in the film is also due to the diet Rami went on to be as fit as Freddie Mercury , and he recently explained what it was all about. The protagonist of the tv series Mr Robot has revealed that he has worked hard to be able to play the character of Freddie Mercury, followed by the artistic director and choreographer Polly Bennett.
This resulted in a high calorie diet coupled with physical activity to put on some muscle, Rami being naturally thin, and thus interpreting the latest appearances of Freddie Mercury.
But when it came to shooting the scenes of Mercury as a young man, Rami had to go back on a low-calorie diet and be able to lose as much weight as possible in three weeks.
In this case, he drastically reduced calories by eating soup for lunch and dinner, which is the equivalent of a light minestrone. Beyond that, she took in lean protein, meaning a protein shake for breakfast with a scoop of whey protein powder in water, a small serving of chicken or lean fish for lunch and dinner. In this way he was able to lose the weight gained in no time.
However, this is not something the actor recommends doing. He explains that in his case it was essential to be able to play the role of Freddie Mercury in various ages, which earned him the Golden Globe nomination.
