When it comes to partying like a rock star, Rami Malek, might know a thing or two after his award-winning portrayal of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury – so it was no surprise when the actor was pictured looking a bit disheveled after a night out with his on-screen/off-screen love interest Lucy Boynton.
The American born actor was seen at the BAFTAs afterparty held at The Grosvenor Hotel after taking home the Leading Actor Trophy. He was pictured smiling a bit bleary-eyed as Lucy smiled at him.
This is not the first win for Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury, which also landed him a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe amongst many other honors for his portrayal in Bohemian Rhapsody.
All these accolades has earned Malek an honorary spot with ‘Queen’ who he has been spotted hanging out with as if he is ‘actually’ part of the band.
When Rami went on Jimmy Kimmel Live and explained how he actually become really close with the members of the iconic band.
Jimmy Kimmel told Rami during the interview: ‘I’ve noticed that you have been hanging around with the guys from ‘Queen’ as if you were actually in ‘Queen’. To which he responded smiling, ‘Right! Yes!’, Kimmel then preceded to joke with him, ‘you know you weren’t in Queen right?!’, Malek responded, ‘What are you talking about?’
There has been one constant in Malek’s life since the whirlwind start of Bohemian Rhapsody‘s popularity, and that has been, his on-screen/off-screen love Lucy Boyton. The actress hasn’t received as much recognition for her role as Freddie Mercury’s first love Mary Austin, but has been constantly by Rami’s side during award show season.
The couple was first spotted last November on Rodeo Drive walking arm-in-arm enjoying a shopping trip in Beverly Hills.
