Luke Evans wonders why he was not offered the Beast’s role

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Luke Evans says he was keen on playing the Beast in the upcoming film "Beauty and the Beast" and was surprised when he was offered Gaston's role.

The 37-year-old actor admits he wanted to essay the main lead, which was eventually played by Dan Stevens, reported Digital Spy.

"I did wonder why they hadn't offered me the Beast but they came straight for Gaston. The casting director knew Gaston was for me. I came in at the 11th hour, and it was always going to be Gaston, but it was hard to get my head around because he's a freak of nature, isn't he?" says Evans

But now the actor says he is more than happy he got a chance to play Gaston and hopes the fans will root for his character.

"I went with the Gaston character and relished every minute of who he is and what he stands for, and the bad parts of him, and all the funny parts of it. I think people are going to love it, I really do."
