Taron Egerton‘s (@taron.egerton) recent weight gain has been the subject of debate.

Talking about gaining weight for the character, Taron Egerton previously did gain weight and muscle for his role as James “Jimmy” Keene in Black Bird. Later, the 33-year-old actor expressed his weight gain and muscle-building experience for the role of Jimmy in an interview with The Project, saying,

Lots of weight-lifting, an hour on the bike every day, […] just depleting your calories and having enough time to get to the place you wanna get to. It was good though, I have never done it to that extent before but it was good.

Even though Egerton did not say how much weight he acquired for the role, it is clear that the actor gained roughly 20-25 pounds for the role. He also added,

This is a challenge of discipline and the physical element as in the weight lifting and all of that stuff, it kind of becomes quite addictive. You start to increase your strength and you see the results which always feels very nice.

Gaining weight and increasing muscle were crucial and necessary components of the actor’s transformation into Jimmy. Taron Egerton further added to The Project about the need for his transformation for the perfection of his portrayal saying, “It says in the first scene, it said it in the character description, […] that he [Jimmy] was in an extraordinary shape. So, I tried to rise to the challenge.”  His changed physique helps to define the character because the drug dealer is a macho man and alpha male who relishes his masculinity among women.

After playing Elton John in Rocketman, Egerton was given the opportunity to test himself as an actor by playing Jimmy.’ Later, Egerton explained to the New York Times, saying, “I wanted to do something that felt really different from Rocketman. People tend to think of you as the last thing you did. They don’t want to take that risk on giving an actor a role that they’ve not seen them do a version of before.” The distinctions between Egerton’s depictions of Elton and Jimmy include his admirable physical transformation.
