15 Celebrities Who Were Actually Refugees

1 – Freddie Mercury

Queen frontman Freddie Mercury was a rock legend! He is without a doubt one of the most iconic singers in the music industry and he has dedicated legions of fans even long after his untimely death from an AIDS related illness in 1991. However, what most of those fans fail to realise is that Freddie first came to Britain as a refugee. He was originally from Zanzibar, but fled to England in 1964 during the political revolution in his homeland.
