I’d be a very boy­ish Bond: Eger­ton

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Ac­tor Taron Eger­ton (right) has not ruled out play­ing James Bond on the sil­ver screen in the fu­ture, but thinks he needs “a lit­tle bit more wear in his face” first. “I think most peo­ple would love to do it but I ex­pect I need a lit­tle bit more wear in my face be­fore I do that. I’d be a very boy­ish Bond, wouldn’t I? So there's cer­tainly no truth to that at the mo­ment,” Eger­ton said, re­ported fe­male­first.co.uk.

The 27-year-old ac­tor has ful­filled one of his act­ing dreams by star­ring in an­i­mated film Sing along­side ac­tors like Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Matthew McConaughey and Reese Wither­spoon. He added: “I gen­uinely prom­ise and swear on any­thing the singing was all me. And the same goes for ev­ery­one. I think that’s why they cast peo­ple who could sing. It’s been an am­bi­tion of mine be­fore I even wanted to act to be in­volved in an­i­ma­tion. I used to draw and make plas­tic fig­urines and watch Wallace and Gromit films. So, to be part of an an­i­mated film like this was re­ally a dream of mine.”

He is keen to fol­low ac­tor Hugh Jack­man by do­ing both act­ing and singing. “He is very much an ac­tor and singer. I’d love it if peo­ple thought of me like that. I love singing as much as I love act­ing,” he said.
