Hello, i was just wondering if Freddie ever did any acting on tv or a part in a film or something.


We love you Freddie, R.I.P

It was some talk about appearing in Eastenders... Never happened....

Someone talked about him being involved in some condom advertisements some years before he died... Maybe just bullshit... ?

I did read somewhere that Freddie played in a musical once (think it was called Time, from the song you know...) , but I don't believe he ever appeared in a movie or something....

He never played in Time, he just did 2 songs on the soundtrack. And he never played in tv series of movies.

Freddie was Andrew Lloyd Webber's first choice to play the phantom in Phantom of the Opera

He never acted, but I'm sure that if he would've done it - it would've been excellent. As everything Freddie did was great & briliant.

Okay Fried Chicken, if Freddie didn't play in Time, then what musical or ballet was it, because it says in his biography that he did play in a musical or ballet, whatever it was....

He only sang three tracks at a gala-performance of Time. He did perform with the Royal Ballet in late 1979 - performing CLTCL and BoRhap.

Well, I don't know if his brief appearance as 'himself'
on The Kenny Everett show counts as acting. Maybe not.
