Luke Evans Recalls His 'Beauty And The Beast' Gaston Audition: 'I Knew I Could Do It'

Like any other actor, Luke Evans admits that he can get nervous when it comes to an important audition – but that certainly wasn’t the case for Beauty and the Beast!

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the flick on Wednesday (March 1), the 37-year-old revealed he was feeling very confident for his Gaston audition.

“You go into these auditions and you’re always feeling very self-conscious but this one I knew I could do it,” Luke admitted to Jimmy. “I was like, ‘I can sing this track [and] I’m going to blow him [director Bill Condon] away’. He sat this close to me, as close to me as you. I intimated him, that was the point.”

Earlier this week, Disney released a clip of the “Gaston” scene, showing Luke and LeFou actor Josh Gad belting out the track – watch it here!

    Luke Evans is great, quite sure he’ll steal the movie.

    This is no hate toward homosexual men, but when I learned he was gay, my heart sank. :-) He was so gorgeous in The Hobbit. Still gorgeous and a great actor indeed.
