I want to have fun. I’m not interested in being a serious actor because I think it’s boring, and I think we’ve got plenty of them. So, I like to do stuff that has a sense of humour, and stuff that doesn’t necessarily take itself too seriously. But equally I’m also now yearning to explore the dark side of life a little bit.
The joy of the job is the diversity and the variety – and, if you’re lucky enough, to have the freedom to do different things. I don’t like the idea of a box. It’s nice to kind of defy the idea of a box —- Taron Egerton
“If this word should turn out to be a ‘Te moriturum saluto,’ perhaps it will brighten the dark moments a little to think how you have meant to someone more than anything ever has or ever will. What you have striven for will not end in nothing, all that you have done and been will not be wasted, for it will be a part of me as long as I live, and I shall remember, always.”
―Vera Brittain to Roland Leighton, 26th September 1915.
It’s kind of luck, and being in the right place at the right time, and that’s definitely what happened to me. I’m in the most privileged position, and I feel extremely grateful for it. The things it’s allowed me to do have really been quite amazing, and have been the greatest sources of pride in my life. God, I’m getting really earnest and X-Factor-y about it, aren’t I?
Happy 29th Birthday, Taron David Egerton! (November 10, 1989)
