Taron Egerton (born November 10th 1989)
Taron Egerton is an actor from Cheshire, England best known for starring in 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'.
Acting career: Taron Egerton's first acting role came with a double episode of TV detective drama 'Lewis' in 2013. The following year he starred in short-running Sky1 drama 'The Smoke' with Jodie Whittaker.
His breakthrough role came with Matthew Vaughn's comedy thriller 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' in which he starred alongside Colin Firth.
He has also appeared in World War I drama 'Testament of Youth' opposite Kit Harington.
Personal life: Taron Egerton was born in Birkenhead, Cheshire but grew up in the Wirral, and Anglesey and Aberystwyth in Wales with his B&B owner father and social worker mother.
He was educated at Ysgol Penglais Comprehensive, and later the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, as well as Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
He won the Stephen Sondheim Society's Student Performer of the Year award in 2011.
He is a member of the National Youth Theatre.
Harry Hart met his end in 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'…or did he?
Colin Firth’s return for Kingsman sequel The Golden Circle appears to be official, just months after a poster was released teasing that his character might not be dead after all. Firth played agent Harry Hart in the first movie, but the character was killed off before the end, leaving his protege Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton) to take his place as the newest Kingsman.
It will be the singer’s first non-cameo film role since 1975’s ‘Tommy’.
Elton John has confirmed he will have a role in the upcoming sequel to British spy comedy Kingsman, The Golden Circle. The singer was first rumoured to be appearing in the film last month and his confirmation comes just as shooting on the sequel has begun in London.

On Instagram John posted a parody poster which featured his iconic star glasses in Union Jack colours, along with the phrase ‘Wednesday night's alright for fighting’, a reference to his 1973 hit ‘Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)’.

Based on the true story of an unapologetic underdog who never won anything, this British comedy is a shameless crowd-pleaser. Eddie Edwards won the hearts of fans worldwide by coming in dead last at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, and the cast and crew follow his journey with buckets of humour and emotion, plus some seriously exhilarating ski jumping. And like its central character, the film is awkward, good-hearted and impossible not to love.
Eddie (Taron Egerton) grew up obsessed with becoming an Olympian even though he has no talent for sport. He manages to become a regional downhill skiing champion, but is so annoying that the head of the British Olympics Team (Tim McInnerny) changes the rules to disqualify him. So at 22 he instead decides to become Britain's only ski jumper. He moves to Germany to train on his own, meeting the jaded ex-jumper Bronson (Hugh Jackman) and persistently convincing him to offer some coaching tips. And as the Olympics officials keep raising the bar for membership on the team, Eddie improves just enough to qualify. His father (Keith Allen) thinks he should give up, but his mother (Jo Hartley) quietly offers support. And it's Eddie's sheer tenacity that gets him to Calgary.
Director Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill) tells this story as a high-energy comedy centred on a dorky young man who simply won't take no for an answer. Egerton plays Eddie with perhaps too many physical tics, but exudes so much goofy charm that it's easy to see how he won over the people around him, and the global audience watching the Olympics. His interaction with everyone he meets on this journey is barbed and hilarious, and his joy at each small achievement is infections. Egerton also generates terrific chemistry with Jackman in one of his most enjoyable roles yet. It's hugely entertaining to watch this grouchy loser be begrudgingly coaxed out of his shell by Eddie's boundless enthusiasm.

'Eddie The Eagle' actor 'flattered' by new rumours.
He's in the headlines at the moment for portraying legendary UK ski-jumper Eddie the Eagle in the film of the same name, but it seems young Taron Egerton could be reaching new heights with his next acting role as reports fly that he is being considered for the role of Han Solo in a new 'Star Wars' prequel.
Taron Egerton would like to play Han Solo
And why not? He's got the charm and more than enough boldness to play the 'Star Wars' hero, who was originally (and recently in 'The Force Awakens') played by Harrison Ford. It seems the idea of such a major part has put a smile on Egerton's face.

They were spotted with the real Eddie Edwards.
'Eddie the Eagle' made it's European premiere at the Odeon in London yesterday (March 17th 2016) and with it came a host of British stars as well as Hugh Jackman, who flew over the pond to re-unite with co-star Taron Egerton and, of course, the movie's subject Eddie Edwards himself.

The comedy biopic saw 'Kingsman' star Taron Egerton in the role of the titular Olympic ski jump legend; a man who became famous not for his exceptional talent on the slopes, but indeed for his distinct lack of such and yet overwhelming determination and perseverance that struck accord with the whole nation at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
To play the title role in Eddie the Eagle, 26-year-old English actor Taron Egerton underwent a physical transformation that's unusual for a rising star.
After setting the screen alight in films like Kingsman and Legend, he had to change everything about his appearance to play Eddie: adopting an underbite and wearing glasses that were so thick that he had trouble walking around the film sets.
But he loved the challenge. "For an actor to have the chance to go and play something that's far away from yourself physically, and also in terms of personality, is so much fun," he says. "It's slightly terrifying that you won't live up to it, but it's just the most creatively satisfying challenge. Obviously, having researched Eddie and finding out what he looks like and what he was about, to step into his shoes was just wonderful."
