Thompson, who recently appeared on CTV's The Social, spoke about her "rigid and shiny" role as Mrs. Potts before breaking into song.
Below is a transcript of the video:
The Social: On that movie you worked with Emma Watson and you are working with her again on the live-action Beauty and the Beast. You're playing a teapot. You're playing Mrs. Potts.Source: The Social via What Pamela Would Have Wanted , La Bella y la Bestia de Disney
Emma Thompson: I've always been big on crockery.
TS: How do you play a teapot?
ET: It's CGI. Let's face it, I'm a teapot in CGI for a long time and then you get turned back, so really it's a lot in the studio. But I did try to sound as rigid and shiny as possible.
TS: You sing, yes?
ET: Well, I sing Angela Lansbury's part as Mrs. Potts. It's "Tale as old as time...Beauty and the Beast."
