When asked about Egerton playing the lead role, producer Giles Martin had this to say: "Elton said, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron.’ The great thing about Elton is that he wants Taron’s interpretation of his songs. [...] I don’t think there’s anyone in the world who could have played Elton – it’s Taron’s role.”
