“There is not an element that really wasn’t the toughest. One of the reasons I did the Broadway show was to make sure I was vocally fit to not only sing it, but sing it all day long, wake up the next day, and have another 12 hours of it. I put on 29 pounds from beginning to end,” Hugh shared.

Hugh added, “Tom [Hooper] told me, ‘I want people to worry, I want your friends to think you’re sick.’ The physicality, the emotional (aspect) acting-wise, was tough.”
