Taron Egerton Reveals How He 'Tailored' His 'Rocketman' Character

Taron Egerton is opening up about what kinds of changes he made to his character, Elton John, in Rocketman.

The 30-year-old Robin Hood actor spoke on stage at an Evening Honoring Rocketman at the California Film Institute on Wednesday (December 4) in San Rafael, Calif.

He was joined by Rocketman director Dexter Fletcher and moderator Zoe Elton.

“Once you are existing in a world of fantasy, you’re no longer trying to claim that it is set in the exact same universe that Elton occupied,” Taron told TheWrap in a new interview. “So I can tailor the character to fit our purposes.”

“Of course, you never want to go too far away from it, because we’re here to celebrate Elton,” he added. “But you know, the fact of the matter is that Elton and I don’t look alike. We trust in the fact that people willfully suspend their disbelief in storytelling, and I just wanted to capture the showman in him, the anger in him, the pain and vulnerability, and trust that when it’s all put together, it will feel like Elton John.”

Taron Egerton is hot on the promo trail for Rocketman ahead of awards season.

“I have a camper van — like a VW [RV] — that I spend a lot of time in,” Taron revealed about the inspiration behind his drag name. “He finds that very funny, for some reason. So my name is ‘Blodwyn’ — which is a Welsh name — ‘Blodwyn Campervan.’”

Taron added, “Actually, that night, after he’d gone to bed, I stole his Polaroid camera and wore some of my girlfriend’s clothes and did a little photoshoot and left it there in the kitchen for them for after we’d left of me dressed as my vision of Blodwyn Campervan.”
