If you’re a mega fan, you did. It’s okay if you missed him, he was nearly unrecognizable in his brief cameo.

Lambert tagged his post: “Who is he!?” with laughing emojis.
In the scene, Rami Malek‘s Freddie Mercury is on tour with Queen and stops to take a call from his fiancé Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton). However, Freddie meets eyes with Adam Lambert’s husky-looking character as he makes his way into the men’s bathroom, lightly suggesting the beginning of Freddie’s flirtation with his attraction to men.
Lambert said on the red carpet at the movie’s New York premiere for the film that he was in the movie but that his appearance was “very, very mysterious.”
Bohemian Rhapsody’s home video release comes on the heels of the film being named the highest grossing music biopic of all time and scoring two major Golden Globe award wins, Best Actor in a Drama for Malek and Best Picture Drama.
