While everyone was thoroughly impressed with Kangana Ranaut’s award-worthy performance in Queen, many were equally overwhelmed with the talent of the foreign actors who played Rani’s (the protagonist) friends, in the second half of the film.
Let us know more about these wonderful guys, whose bonding with Kangana Ranaut was so good in ‘Queen’, that it is no surprise that they continue to be friends, beyond the film too.
Mish Boyko – Alexander (Sikander), the cute looking beer-toting guy in the film, who has a silent crush on Rani, is none other than Mish Boyko. His adorable screen presence and unassuming nature is infectious. A fair share of the audience actually wanted Rani to fall in love with Alexander, but ultimately, it is revealed that she has a crush on the Italian chef, played by Marco Canadea. Mish Boyko is an actor from Midland based in London and he has acted in movies and TV series like Wrist (2010), Waterloo Road(TV series), The Burn (a short film), D is for Detroit and of course, Queen.

Jeffrey Ho – The Japanese boy ‘Taka’ with whom Rani bonds the strongest, stole the hearts of millions with his impish charm. Jeffrey Chee Eng Ho is a Malaysian born Chinese actor, who is based in London. He graduated from the London School of Dramatics (LSDA) in London. He played the lead role of David in the play for his graduation, called ‘Love and Money’. Jeffery’s work is handled by ‘North West Actors’, a prominent agency. The talented actor mostly dabbles in theater productions. Queen is his debut film. Jeffrey Ho holds Kangana Ranaut, in high regard and they continue to be real-life friends. If you wonder how tall he is, the little master Jeffrey Ho’s height is 5 feet 2 inches. He is a musician, singer, dancer and is also good with sports like volleyball, tennis and swimming.

Guitobh Thomas – Guitobh Joseph Thomas, the dark-skinned man who plays Tim, is indeed French. Kangana met him in Paris and by the time, the foreign actors began to work together as a unit in Amsterdam, Kangana became good buddies with Guitobh. While the French actor and his wife Caroline came to Mumbai, Kangana played the perfect host. Since Caroline was fascinated by Indian sarees, Kangana even gifted a pink one to her.
Marco Canadea – He is the actor who ends up kissing Kangana Ranaut in Queen. Not that her character minds, as she already has a crush on him and does it anyway for the sake of India! Marco Candea is an actor who has done films like Crush (2013), Scotchend(2014) and Queen. He is also based in London and is represented by his agency ‘International Actors London’ http://www.ialagency.com He can be reached on Twitter at @MarcoCanadea.
