Dan Stevens does not look his beast for Emma Watson
EMMA WATSON’S acting skills were given an extra workout when she had to pretend actor Dan Stevens did not look ridiculous in a grey all-in-one with matching skull cap.
The 27-year-old Harry Potter star was in a ball gown as Belle for the scene in Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.
But Stevens, 34, had to wear a massive motion-capture suit and stilts for his role as the Beast with CGI applied later. Social media users reacted with amusement to the footage in a behind-the-scenes featurette.
One praised Watson’s acting skills, adding: ‘How did Emma Watson manage to keep a straight face the entire time?’ Another wanted to see the film without special effects.
Former Downton Abbey actor Stevens, 34, has said the suit was ‘an ordeal for my calf muscles alone’.
