Current Queen frontman Adam Lambert says his cameo in Bohemian Rhapsody was the band’s idea.
A heavily-disguised Lambert appears briefly as a truck driver who tries to pick up Rami Malek’s Freddie Mercury.
Lambert says the band approached him about “this little part” in the movie, and “put a big moustache on me and a wig and that hat, so you can’t really even tell it’s me.” He asked that his name not appear in the credits, so his appearance would be a surprise.
Lambert has been performing with Queen since 2011, but recently said he has no plans to record any new music under the Queen name.
