WATCH: Behind-the-Scenes Eddie the Eagle Clip, Starring Taron Egerton & Hugh Jackman
Working alongside an Oscar-nominated actor can be intimidating. Like, how nerve-wracking must that feel? Welsh actor Taron Egerton should know the feeling, working alongside Hugh Jackman, who was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his work in Les Miserables, in Eddie the Eagle. But, according to the 26-year-old star of the film, they hit it off right away.
In an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, he said, “Hugh and I very quickly had a laugh, really, and it felt very familiar.” The footage then delves into how the two got to know each other on set.
To bring you up to speed on the tale, here’s the synopsis: “The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.”
The film is available now on Digital HD, and on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, June 14. Until then, watch the exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, starring Hugh Jackman & Taran Egerton, above!
