Brian May lashed out at a cameraman and called him a ‘parasite’ after landing in Brisbane, Australia earlier this week.

But on Friday the legendary Queen guitarist was seen leaving Brisbane airport on a far friendlier note. 

Putting his troubles behind him, the 72-year-old met with some fans before his departure.

He stepped out of the car and helped waved at the small group waiting for him – a father and his daughter.

Brian greeted the two and was seen shaking hands with the young girl who was carrying an electric guitar – likely passing on words of wisdom and encouragement.

The iconic musician also chatted with a young boy waiting to meet him and shook his hand.

It comes after Brian May lashed out at a cameraman after arriving on a private jet when he asked a news photographer to stop filming him while he met with fans.

The cameraman obliged, before taking out his phone to film May, which seemingly infuriated the guitarist.

‘Oh, you’re clever aren’t you?’ May said, as reported by 7News. ‘What a parasite you are.’

The Witches actor Vincent Marzello has died at the age of 68.

The Brooklyn native had worked steadily since the 1970s, appearing in two James Bond movies – The Spy Who Loved Me and Never Say Never Again – as well as Superman and, more recently, Planet 51. 

His wife Lorelei King confirmed the news on Tuesday though a cause of his death was not shared. Earlier, the Notting Hill actress had revealed that he was battling cancer and got successful treatment in 2009. But he had also been diagnosed with dementia.

‘The love of my life, my darling husband Vincent Marzello, died this morning,’ she said on Tuesday. ‘To those who knew him, I am sorry to post the news rather than contact you personally, but I am overwhelmed. My heart is broken.’ 

Vincent was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.

His first acting role was for an episode of The Brothers. 

He then went on to play USS Wayne Crewman in the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me with Roger Moore and Barbara Bach.

His big role: Here he is seen playing Luke's father in The Witches in 1990

Next came a small part in 1978’s Superman.

In 1993 he was back on the set of another Bond film, Never Say Never Again with Sean Connery and Kim Basinger. This time he played Colonel Culpepper.

In 1990 he starred in The Witches as Luke’s father.

In 1995 he starred as the dad in the hit film A Kid In King Arthur’s Court. Next came The Fragile Heart, Velvet Goldmine and Lucia.

Vincent played Lyman Hersh in the 2004 drama Laws Of Attraction with Pierce Brosnan. And starting in 2005 he voiced characters for Bob The Builder.

His most recent credit on IMDB was his voice work in 2017 for The Magical Music Box. 

He lives mostly in London with King. 

In February King spoke of his condition at Dementia UK. 

‘Thinking that the person I loved most in the world might be in pain with no way to relieve it, or that he might not be getting essential medication, took a toll on me emotionally; I felt so helpless,’ she shared.

She also said the dementia was discovered when he went in for cancer treatment.

‘During his cancer treatment, medical professionals were finally observing him very closely and it was clear to them that there was something wrong. ‘”How long has he had dementia?”, they asked – the first time anyone had said that to me – and, as horrifying as it was to hear, it brought a kind of relief, because we had finally named it,’ she said.

King added: ‘We postponed formal diagnosis, because first we had to put out the fire that was right in front of us: the cancer. 

‘This involved surgery, a catastrophic complication, more surgeries, months of chemotherapy – a process difficult enough to go through, made even more difficult by the dementia.’
