AN­GLE­SEY-RAISED ac­tor Taron Eger­ton is to play a young El­ton John in an up­com­ing movie biopic of the singer.

The ac­tor - who plays a young Sir El­ton in Rocketman - posted a picture, ap­par­ently from the set, on Twit­ter.

The im­age shows the shadow of a man wear­ing two huge wings.

It was cap­tioned: “Here

we go. #Rocketman @ eltonof­fi­cial @ Paramoun­tPics.”

The film is ex­pected to chart Sir El­ton’s ca­reer, fol­low­ing his sto­ryt as he went from be­ing a prodigy at the Royal Acad­emy of Mu­sic to be­com­ing a world­wide record-mak­ing su­per­star.

Taron spent his child­hood in Llan­fair­p­wll and later Aberys­t­wyth.
