gqitalia.it – Taron Egerton, interviewed by Simona Siri, talks about his more disciplined and dedicated side to work and his love for acting, which blossomed a little by chance. “I must have been 15, and I started out more as a social business. At the time I had experimented with creativity in drawing, sculpture, and painting: it was a funny age, a weird period of adolescence, in which I felt a bit lost. I had a couple of friends who acted and I thought it would be fun to join them: from there, from that random start, I fell in love. The more I acted, the more satisfied I felt, the more I liked it, the more I realized it was a great way to express myself. Over time I think the feeling has changed, but at the time it was just a fire, which allowed me to be excessive and release the tension. Then, growing up, the attention turned to the narrative element. I’ve always been a great reader, but I’m not a writer. For me the only way to be part of storytelling is theater, to recite words written by others.
