Taron Egerton Talks About ‘Quite Physical’ Love Scenes With Richard Madden For ‘Rocketman’

What a handsome on-screen couple they make, don’t you think? Talk about a wet dream come true. Now imagine them hot and heavy in bed? Well, in a few months imagination becomes reality. Taron Egerton talks about the sex scenes he filmed with Richard Madden for Rocketman.

The 29-year-old Welsh actor spilled the tea to The List. He reveals they went for it and things “got quite physical” during filming with Madden. Egerton plays Elton John in the biopic while Madden portrays John’s manager and lover John Reid.

“I probably shouldn’t be telling you this but we have a sex scene. We went to some places together and got quite physical,” Taron dished. “I’ve watched it back and I think it looks great. The grown-up nature of the film, combined with it being a musical, makes it feel quite zeitgeisty. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this but it’s basically about Elton in rehab, so we’re not watering anything down.”

Taron added he loved working on the musical and describes it as one of the best things he’s done in his career so far.

“I finished working on it two days ago and I think it could be the best thing I’ve done. It feels very special and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve always loved singing and musicals, and I felt that there was that big side of myself that I haven’t explored yet in films but this gave me the opportunity to do that. And it’s very consciously a proud, gay film and it’s also open to showing Elton’s darker moments.”

Rocketman arrives in theaters May 31, 2019.
