Luke Evans “Beauty And The Beast” Interview On “GMA” (VIDEO)
Luke Evans opened up about playing Gaston in the new Beauty And The Beast movie and shared a never-before-seen clip on Tuesday’s “GMA.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, the upcoming live-action remake stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Integral to the story, though, is Evans’ Gaston. “It’s one of those jobs you love going into work to play. I didn’t want it to finish,” he said on “Good Morning America.”
“He’s a total idiot,” Evans amusingly went on to say of his infamous character. “But there’s so much fun. He’s the lovable rogue of the village, tries to get Belle, makes a complete idiot of himself. You see this man become a complete monster throughout the film.”
During production, Evans particularly bonded with Josh Gad, who plays Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou. In fact, the morning show even showed off a hilarious, but charming video of the co-stars singing “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. But the real treat was getting to see a brand-new clip from the movie, showing the “Gaston” musical number.
Asked where the experience ranks in his career, Evans said, “Oh, very, very near the top, if not the top. It’s Disney, you know? You’re bringing an animated character that people have known for so long to life. It’s an honor, but it’s so much fun.” Check out the full interview below!
