Elton John and Taron Egerton performed a duet at the after party following the Cannes Film Festival ‘Rocketman’ premiere.
Elton John said, in an interview at Cannes after the premiere, that he was very moved by the film and was full of admiration for Taron Egerton, not only as an actor but also as a singer.
Egerton plays a young Elton John in the days when he still went by the name Reginald Dwight and the film follows his journey from piano-playing dreamer in an unexciting London suburb to stadium-filling superstar.
The cast also includes Jamie Bell as John’s long-term lyricist Bernie Taupin and Richard Madden as his first manager.
