“We need someone to raise the curtain!” hissed Tina in a loud stage whisper. “I’ll do it,” said Freddie and, taking up two corners, he buzzed up to the ceiling and hovered. “ZZZZZZZ…zzzzzZZZZ”
Freddy is a housefly (Musca domestica is how you say it in Latin) Unlike other houseflies that have red eyes, Freddy’s eyes are white, and he wears glasses.
Like other houseflies, Freddy has a slightly hairy body and a single pair of membranous wings. He is 6 to 7 mm long with a wingspan of 13 to 15 mm. Freddy (who used to identify as Felix the Fly) is stronger than his size would imply.
Flies are everywhere so he and his duplicated friends are very useful when we need crowd scenes.
Freddy / 'Peace Power' The name Freddy stems from Federick, which originated as a Germanic name, from the elements “frid” meaning “peace” and “rīc” meaning “ruler, power”. Freddy Name
