Julie Walters Billy Elliot

Veteran actress Julie Walters broke down in tears on the set of Billy Elliot as she was going through the menopause at the time of filming.

The Harry Potter star has opened up about her struggle to cope with the physical changes, and admits she found it impossible to learn her dance routine because she was so emotionally unstable.

During a live question and answer session with fans, Walters discussed how hard she found filming for the movie musical, saying, "It was awful, and I couldn't get the steps right. It was the menopause again, I don't want to go on, but it was. I went up to the end of the room, and I've never done this on a set before or since, and cried. But anyway I had to come back and face everybody. It was just terrible. Anyway we got it right in the end."

Elton John Billy Elliot

Sir Elton John battled illness on Wednesday (30May12) to congratulate the cast of London's Billy Elliot stage show on its 3000th performance.

The Rocket Man, who composed the tunes for the musical, was recently forced to scrap a number of concerts in Las Vegas to recover from a serious respiratory infection, but he put on a brave face to join director Stephen Daldry and writer Lee Hall in celebrating Billy Elliot the Musical's continued success.

The cast and crew of the West End production delivered its landmark show for a gala audience at the Victoria Palace Theatre on Wednesday, with the stars delivering a special finale number to a roaring applause.

The famed show, based on the award-winning film of the same name, premiered in 2005 and follows the titular character as he struggles to realise his boyhood dream of becoming a dancer despite the odds. To date, more than eight million people have taken in the spectacle, including actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman and Queen Elizabeth II.

Jamie Bell wanted a dance off with Channing Tatum on the set of their new movie.

The pair star together in new action movie 'The Eagle', but with both having shown off their footwork in their previous films - Jamie in ballet movie 'Billy Elliot' and his co-star in 'Step Up' - the British actor wanted to put their skills to the test, though he thinks they would both be worthy winners.

Jamie said: "I wish there was a dance off on set. We both have different styles of dance, he's much more of a contemporary dancer and I come from a tap dancing background. If it was a battle I think we should both win medals, because we do come from different arenas."
