Rocketman cutie Taron Egerton recently spoke at length about the upcoming love scene he has with The Bodyguard/Game of Thrones star Richard Madden, saying:
“I felt Richard’s p***s … on my leg,” he told Attitude. “We shot a scene where we are both naked on a bed, and we are rolling around. I don’t really know how much further we could have gone.”
“In the script, this is the scene of Elton losing his virginity, and we wanted to try to do that justice, and also at that point, their relationship hasn’t broken down yet,” Egerton explained. “They were falling in love, and it’s beautiful because it should be. We didn’t want to play like they were a couple who were eventually going to fall apart, we wanted to play it like two guys in their early twenties who are falling in love and who are incredibly sexually attracted to each other.”
He also revealed about discovering his own sexuality:
“When I was 14 or 15, I had a period of thinking I might be gay and I spoke to my mother about it.” He continued, “It was part of a period in my life where my mind was figuring things out. You question everything, there are hormones … It was a very real feeling to me, and I was very panicked and upset about how I would be perceived.”
“That is not the same as going through it for real but there is some understanding of what it might be like, and I remember feeling that acutely.”
For the record, Taran is straight, but a hell of an ally.
