Luke Evans liberated by 'Beauty and the Beast' role

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Luke Evans says he relished every moment of playing the "ridiculous, self-absorbed and terrifying" villain Gaston in "Beauty and the Beast".

The 37-year-old actor says he feels liberated after the role as his character was so different to himself in real life, reported Contactmusic.

"It's fun to play a character who does all the things you'd never dare to do in real life. It's liberating - you can't feel self-conscious about playing somebody like Gaston, you just have to go with it," Evans said.

"I owe it to the animated giant of a creature we see in the original to be that ridiculous and self-absorbed and terrifying. And to enjoy it.
