  • Gentlemen, it's good to see you both again

  • Like wise, you know athletes sometimes they'll go back and watch film from like previous games and things

  • But they can work on or do I'm just curious and I asked this question

  • Did you go back and study the 1973 classic just to get ready for it?

  • You've made this your own and we'll get to that in a second. But I'm curious if you go back and watch that

  • We, I think we both intentionally stayed away from it initially

  • We wanted to go back to the source material of this true story based on a very successful

  • memoir and there were a couple of other pieces of incredible source material that we we referenced and then about

  • Three or four weeks into it

  • we spent most evenings together looking at the stuff for the next day or the week coming and

  • We decided we'd sit down and watch the film together

  • which was exciting it was a little bit of a you know, a little bit of a

  • you know, I can't think of the

  • adaptation of the swear word that I was going to use the

  • But it was a master that heads a little bit or at least it did mine

  • But yeah, you said it didn't mitigate any of our fears bang. Yeah, any means right? It was fun

  • I mean, well what I think we were also trying to

  • gauge is the levity in that film and how weak because ours is it's pretty brutal version of

  • the

  • circumstances and

  • you can I don't think you could go through that without seeing how that

  • Camaraderie exists through having a some comic undertones. What are some of the other challenges?

  • I know most actors when they take on some roles. They work out. I think you guys work down you starved yourselves

  • It looks like you know as the movie progresses, but what were some of the other challenges?

  • Charlie's starved and I just had a hard time eating in front of him because it just

  • He was gonna punch me at one point if I if I had something nice and tasty

  • Oh, yeah, man you really you

  • you know the way the conditions were on occasion quite difficult particularly that

  • Long escape sequence that we did in the evening. We shot it all night

  • And you know, it's rain coming off coming down and we shot it in late

  • November I believe or maybe early November in

  • Montenegro and it was in the mountains and it was very very cold and that water was incredibly

  • cold and it was the end of the shooting

  • We were already tired and you know malnourished and so I remember those nights being particularly long. What is it?

  • What does it like to play?

  • real people and you're actually getting ready to take on a huge role of Freddie Mercury, of course, but I mean these guys existed and

  • What do you feel as actors? How challenging is that? How different is that for an actor to play somebody that is real?

  • Well, it's

  • You have to honor their story in a way that you perhaps don't have the same

  • creative liberties

  • at times because you know, there is

  • Yeah, there's a loyalty you have to have to this person. You're telling their story

  • I mean and that's you know that one last vestige of

  • Who they are.

  • To

  • Bring back to an audience. So you have to with with care and consideration

  • You have to be very very thoughtful. That's someone's legacy

Gentlemen, it's good to see you both again
