Freddie Mercury’s younger sister, Kashmira Cooke, is an actress and singer-songwriter. Cooke, who was raised in a middle-class family, shot to fame after her older brother, Freddie Mercury, became Queen’s frontman and became an overnight sensation. Cooke is married to Roger Cooke, with whom she has two children and a net worth of $5 million.
Birthday and age of Kashmira Cooke’s sister
She was born in Zanzibar, Tanzania, in 1952 as Kashmira Bulsara to Bomi and Jer Bulsara. Cooke was raised in India by Parsi parents. When she was 12 years old, her parents fled Tanzania during the Zanzibar Revolution and settled in Middlesex, England.
She had a 6-year-old brother, Freddie Mercury (also known as Farrokh Bulsara). He passed away from an AIDS-related complication called Bronchopneumonia on November 24, 1991, at the age of 45. Cooke was born a British citizen because Zanzibar was a British protectorate until 1963.
Parents Nottingham from London called her Kashmira shortly after their son’s death. In her opinion,
My parents decided to relocate to Nottingham after Freddie’s death in order to be nearer to the rest of the family.
Kashmira and her family continue to support the new Queen even after Freddie’s death, and they’ve even managed to get tickets to one of their concerts.
He lost his father Bomi in 2003 and his mother Jer in November 2016, both “quietly and peacefully in their sleep.”
Career in Acting
Kashmira Cooke has been in the public eye for decades, but her professional life and work are largely unknown. Mercury, Cooke’s older brother, chose a different career path than she did.
It’s true, however, that she has some acting credits in the TV Movies Freddie Mercury, the Untold Story, The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody, and Freddie Mercury: Magic Remixed. She has played herself in all of her documentaries (i.e sister of Freddie Mercury). In 2011, she also appeared on the show The One Show on television.
Freddie Mercury’s Life Story in Few Words
Queen, the British rock band he co-founded with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor in 1970, included Mercury as a founding member and the band’s lead vocalist. In the nearly five-decade history of the band, Mercury was ranked as the second-best frontman.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame, and UK Music Hall of Fame all recognized Mercury’s contributions to the band after his death in 2001, 2003, and 2004, respectively.
Famous for being the younger sister of Mercury, Kashmira Cooke maintains a low profile. Kashmira’s net worth, like her career and profession, remains a mystery. Online sources, on the other hand, have pegged her net worth at as much as $5 million.
Mercury Cooke, Cooke’s brother, had accumulated a sizable fortune by the time he died. The CheatSheet estimates Mercury’s deathbed fortune to be $50 million dollars.
Roger Cooke and Roger Cooke’s Family Life
Kashmira Cooke, who married Roger Cooke in 1972, is now 66 years old. Apparently, Kashmira and her husband are the parents of a son and a daughter, according to the information available. Jamal Zook is the name of their son. After marrying, Kashmira adopted her husband’s surname.
We haven’t heard any divorce rumors about the husband and wife, who are enjoying happy family life with their children.
Queen, her brother’s band, signed their first contract with Trident Productions during her wedding years.
The exact date of their wedding and the nature of their relationship are unknown at this time. As far as we know, Kashimra Cooke has never been in a romantic relationship with anyone other than her current spouse, Roger Cooke.
Facebook and other social networking sites
As the sister of a well-known singer, Kashmira is reluctant to be photographed or interviewed.
To be honest, she isn’t even on any of the major social media networks. Additionally, she avoids all public appearances, even if it means avoiding social media altogether.
