Speaking of dancing, what was it like playing the Beast in Beauty and the Beast?

I think physically, the Beast is the most challenging role I’ve ever taken on, just the condition I had to have for my body, and to puppeteer that suit on stilts was like nothing else I’ve ever experienced, seriously. But the kind of engagement, and actually a lot of dance involved in that role will be on stilts, but it was a very, very intense dance training process that has got me physically more engaged with all of my performances in everything else since.

Have you ever had to do anything like that before?

No. British period drama tends to be from the neck up, you know? You’re under three layers of tweed or velour, that sort of plush velvet. It’s a very different mode of working. And so coming over here and getting to work with a number of different directors from all over the world, not just America, and the kind of demands that they put upon you, it’s been great just to expand my range a bit.

How tall were the stilts?

Oh, ten inches. It was pretty high, yeah. You get a little vertigo sometimes.
