Meet the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody

We’ve known Rami Malek is playing Freddie Mercury in the film about the Queen signer for a while, but now we know who’ll be playing the other members of the band.

Former EastEnders actor Ben Hardy has been cast as drummer Roger Taylor.

Gwilym Lee, who is best known for Midsomer Murders, will play guitarist Brian May.

And Jurassic park star Joe Mazzello, who played Tim in the blockbuster, will take on the role of bassist John Deacon in the film which is being directed by Bryan Singer.

The Queen official site also says that the level of detail on the film will be “quite staggering” as Queen archivist Greg Brooks has joined the production. The site also provided an update on the open casting call to Queen fans to play extras in Bohemian Rhapsody.

“They were inundated with fans from across the globe looking to grab a chance of being part of the movie, so thanks for your enthusiasm,” the site said. “It really did bring a smile to our faces…or was it just that there are lots of people out there with 70s and 80s haircuts looking to break into the movies? Either way, once again, Queen fans lead the way and for that, we salute you.”

Filming on Bohemian Rhapsody will start “very, very soon.”
