He’s sure to still be buzzing from his SAG Awards win last week.

Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek was seen grinning as he took a stroll in Venice, Los Angeles, with his co-star and girlfriend Lucy Boyton.

The couple was joined by Lucy’s mother Adriaane Pielou, who is a journalist.

The trio spent some time taking the air before visiting a trendy boutique and eating at popular GJelina restaurant on Abbot Kinney Blvd.

Rami, 37, wore a black jacket with white stripes adorned across it, skinny black jeans and boots. Plus a burgandy top underneath - the only splash of colour to the ensemble.

His other half, 25, also wore black, sporting a warm jacket, leggings and a teal top. She wore a YSL bag across her as she linked arms with her stylish mother, who sported a black top and white skinny jeans.

Rami was sure to plant a kiss on Lucy’s lips as he won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for Bohemian Rhapsody at the SAGs. Lucy played Mary Austin in the biopic, opposite Rami’s Freddie Mercury.

When accepting the gong, Rami said he was ‘taken aback’ to win the award for his role as the Queen front man and said the prize was simply ‘beyond my wildest dreams’.

He admitted it felt ‘extraordinary’ to have scooped the honour ahead of his fellow nominees, Christian Bale (Vice), Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born), Viggo Mortensen (Green Book) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman).

Accepting the accolade on stage at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, he said: “Wow - this just seems extraordinary to me when I look at the actors I’m nominated with, truly. ‘I never in my wildest dreams thought I could be in a category with these men and I’m so proud to be one of your peers and to celebrate my peers tonight and be celebrated by them. It’s an honour and I’m taken aback by it.”

Rami went on to thank the producers and the rest of the cast on the movie, before once again dedicating his win to late Queen front man. He said: ‘I have to thank SAG-AFTRA and wouldn’t be here without having that, my producers Graham King and Dennis O’Sullivan, Fox, New Regency and this ensemble that is so extraordinary to me, that carried me through every moment on this film, thank you.

“I have anecdotes about what it is to be an actor and delivering pizzas and stuff like that, but I’ll spare you it.”

“I thank Queen and Freddie Mercury, I get some power from him that is about stepping up and living your best life; being exactly who you want to be and accomplishing everything you so desire. I feel that, and he allows us all to feel that. So this is for him.”

Earlier in the night, He told an even more fascinating acting story: when Princess Diana pretended to be a man to hang out in a bar with Freddie. Chatting on the red carpet ahead of the Hollywood ceremony, the star addressed one of the more bizarre rumours connecting the Queen front man and the Queen’s daughter-in-law.

Asked about the most surprising thing he learned about the man he was playing, he replied: “You know there was one moment when I hear he took Princess Diana and disguised her as a man and took her into a bar... just so they could have their own fun moment without anybody else being aware.”

He added the disclaimer: “Now I don’t know if that’s true! This might be an urban legend.” When he thanked his co-stars and producers, he omitted Bryan Singer, the ousted director currently facing accusations of sexual misconduct.
