This Is The REAL Star Of ‘Beauty And The Beast’

A little-known actor has stolen the limelight from Emma Watson in the box office hit Beauty and the Beast.

Many believe Welsh actor Luke Evans is the real star of the live action remake with his all-singing, all-dancing and suavely energetic performance.

Evans who plays Gaston is a mixture of charming, cheeky, and even a little bit creepy. The 37-year old’s commanding on-screen presence isn’t surprising, when you look at his history. He was trained at the London Studio and got his start in West End productions including Rent, Avenue Q and Miss Saigon.

His belting voice set him apart throughout the film, highlighting Watson’s vocal limitations.

He scored his first film role at the age of 30, with a raft of action/adventure flicks including Clash of the Titans, Robin Hood and The Three Musketeers.

He’s also appeared in The Hobbit series, The Fast & Furious 6 and The Girl on the Train.

He’s set to play William Moulton Marston, the man who created Wonder Woman.
