Taron attended the Meet The Actor session at the Apple Store in London today. Pictures have been added to the gallery.
I have added over 1000+ BluRay screencaptures of Taron as Eggsy from Kingsman: The Secret Service. The movie was fantastic and I suggest you see it if you haven’t already!
Pictures of Taron promoting the BluRay, DVD and Digital HD release of Kingsman: The Secret Service at The Huntsman Shop yesterday have been added to the gallery.
If there’s a man to watch in 2015, Welsh-born actor Taron Egerton is the one to keep your peepers on. He stormed into prominence with his portrayal of Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin in ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ earlier this year, alongside acting heavyweights Colin Firth and Michael Caine, and he’s not stopped working since. Named as one of GQ’s 50 best dressed British men in 2015, Egerton’s transformation from RADA graduate to well-groomed main man means he’s truly on the Grooming Guide radar.
With upcoming roles as Eddie ‘The Eagle’ alongside Hugh Jackman, and as the enigmatic sidekick Edward ‘Mad-Teddy’ Smith in ‘Legend’ (staring Tom Hardy as both the Kray twins) Egerton looks set to continue his stellar run, wowing audiences with his ability to transform into a diverse range of characters. But we here at Grooming Towers wanted to grab five minutes with the rising star to discuss what’s in his personal grooming arsenal – and find out if Michael Caine imparted any sleek advice to the newest kid on the block!
In the last few years you’ve gone from RADA graduate to well-known actor. Do you think you place more importance on grooming now that you’re in the public eye?
Probably less than I should! No, of course I’m much more aware of grooming now – not that I really get recognised much! I would say I have learnt a lot more about style over the last few years, what I like to wear and what suits me. Gone are the days of living 24/7 in grey joggers like I did at drama school. That’s not to say I don’t go back to the trusty jogging bottoms every so often, I just keep it to round the house or when I’m working out.
In ‘Kingsman’, your character goes through a ‘makeover’ – did you pick up any stealth grooming advice from on-set?
I was lucky enough to wear some beautiful bespoke suits as part of my character Eggsy’s transformation. I now have quite a taste for them, they change everything; the way you hold yourself, they give you a certain confidence, they act almost like a second skin. Also, before ‘Kingsman’ I never really understood the importance of a good watch – now my Bremont is practically welded to my wrist, I haven’t taken it off since I finished filming! It means I no longer have an excuse for being late though…!
2 new stills from Testament Of Youth have been added to the gallery. I’ve also updated a few of the stills we already had to HQ.
The surprise blockbuster directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth just topped $400 million at global box office
A sequel to the surprise blockbuster “Kingsman: The Secret Service”is in the works at Fox.
There was no announcement by the studio or a timetable, but there will be a followup to the R-rated comic book adaptation directed byMatthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth, individuals with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
It makes sense. The London-set “Kingsman: The Secret Service”crossed the $400 million mark at the global box office this weekend. It generated most of that — about $275 million — from abroad.
It became clear Fox had a hit on its hands when it opened to $41 million against “Fifty Shades of Grey” over the Presidents Day holiday weekend in the U.S.
Samuel Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton co-starred in “Kingsman,” which had an $80 million production budget. Vaughn also co-wrote with Jane Goldman and produced the film, which was based on the comic book “The Secret Service” created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.
The London-based Vaughn, who directed 2011’s “X-Men: First Class” for Fox and “Kick-Ass,” has a busy schedule.
