THE Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman admitted he has always felt “very natural” on stage, and he revealed he first realised it was what he wanted to do when he was just six years old.
The 50-year-old actor recalled his first experience on stage and admitted he “fell in love” with performing from the moment he set foot on stage in a production of Camelot.
In an interview with Hello magazine, he said,”I remember when I was about five or six doing Camelot on stage at school and, from that moment I went on to the stage, it felt very natural to me.
“Halfway through the show they brought out a big crown on my head, which was too big and it slipped down and covered my entire face.
“I thought ‘Oh no this is a disaster’ but then I heard an uproarious laugh from the audience and thought ‘No, it’s all good, it’s fun’.
“I fell in love with it then and I’ve been that way ever since.”
The Tony winning actor recently produced and starred in the musical blockbuster The Greatest Showman – based on the life of circus legend PT Barnum – and will be going back to his theatrical roots with a tour based on the film called Hugh Jackman: The Man. The Music. The Show. which will arrive in the UK in May. – BANG!
