The English actor recalled:

“I honestly love musicals. I auditioned for Beauty and the Beast. I really did, for Gaston. I called and said, ├óΓé¼╦£Listen, I want in!’ So somewhere they have a tape of me singing.”

Unfortunately that footage hasn’t surfaced — but he joked there aren’t any hard feelings toward Evans:

“No, only a little bit. No! I love you Luke, you know that.”
