Taron Egerton on his Supportive Family: “The success I’ve had still very much feels like my family’s success”

Posted on 2 min read 27 views

While Taron Egerton may be riding high on his success with movies like Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Eddie the Eagle, the actor still says he owes all his success to his family and their support of his career.

“I’m not from an affluent background in any way, so there was never that [directive from my family] to, ‘Go and be a lawyer because you’ll make more money,’ ” he told People in a recent interview. “There was never any expectation I would make money so it was [encouragement] to go and do what makes you happy and I think they felt I was good at it, and that was lovely to have that support.”

In fact, it was Taron’s family that rallied together to come up with the funds to help him audition for the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), the drama school that he attended before making it big.

“My mother especially, they were all very excited about it,” he said. “My auntie, my father, my mother, my stepfather, it’s about 40-50 pounds [to audition], probably $90 or something like that, and they each gave me the money to go and audition, and they each helped me get accommodation down there when I wasn’t able, I stayed with friends and things, it was a real family effort to pay for me to audition for drama school. … when I got this place at RADA, and I was very lucky – I [auditioned] at a couple other places, but it felt like something that we’d achieved and it’s still, the success I’ve had still very much feels like my family’s success.”

As for how he’s shown his gratitude to his family, Taron said:

“I bought my mother a house last year, I’m very proud to say.”

You can catch Taron in his new movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theaters now!

Taron Egerton to star in ‘A Private War’

Posted on 1 min read 31 views

Kingsman: The Golden Circle actor Taron Egerton has signed on to star in a new drama/thriller film, A Private War, alongside Rosamund Pike.

According to Deadline, Rosamund will play famous war journalist Marie Colvin in the Matthew Heineman-directed film, which will take place at:

“…the front lines of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, the place Colvin often found herself as she became the most celebrated war correspondent of her era.She was known as a woman as comfortable downing Martinis with the posh elite of high-society as she was staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin’s conflict zone coverage included Chechnya, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, where she lost her left eye in 2001. Colvin, who wore a distinctive eye patch after that, died in early 2012 during a rocket attack covering the civil war in Syria for the U.K.’s Sunday Times.”

Taron will play a journalist with a military background that follows Colvin around war zones.

Production for the film is set to begin in November.

You can catch Taron in Kingsman: The Golden Circle when it hits theatres on September 22.

Tori Kelly and Taron Egerton Pose with their Animated Counterparts in New ‘SING’ Posters

Posted on 2 min read 56 views

Check out the newest character posters for Illumination’s upcoming animated flick Sing!

The movie stars Tori Kelly and Taron Egerton, along with Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, and Nick Kroll.

The movie follows koala Buster Moon (McConaughey) as he puts on a singing competition in an effort to save his theater. For the competition, five lead contestants come out to change their lives: A mouse con Mike (MacFarlane), a teenage elephant with stage fright named Meena (Kelly), a pig mother Rosita (Witherspoon), a young gorilla Johnny looking to get away from his family’s history of felonies (Egerton), and Ash, a punk-rock porcupine looking to get away from her boyfriend and go solo (Johansson).

Tori Kelly Sing Movie Poster
“I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a bit of Meena inside,” Kelly says on her character. “She’s that timid kid who desperately wants to share her gifts with the world, but is always second guessing herself.  As an artist, I went to that place of insecurity inside teenage Tori to find my inner Meena. Then you take a deep breath, shake off the nerves and just let the music take over.”

Taron Egerton Sing Movie Poster
“I think that one of the biggest fears we all have is that we will disappoint our parents,” Taron says. “All you want is their acceptance, but as you come into your own, you begin to realize that your dreams don’t always intersect with theirs.  Johnny’s relationship with his father epitomizes this.  He only needs Big Daddy to listen, to actually hear him, just once.  If that happens, Johnny believes he can become his own man and really soar.”

Sing hits theaters on December 21st!
