Watch Hugh Jackman Gush Over Working With Zac Efron on ‘The Greatest Showman’
The Greatest Showman will be available to own on DVD and Blu-Ray Tuesday (April 10) and to celebrate, 20th Century Fox released a short video featuring behind the scenes footage and interviews with the films stars—Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman—as well as director Michael Gracey.
During the clip, Gracey and Jackman have nothing but wonderful things to say about Efron, who was cast as P.T. Barnum's (played by Jackman) partner Pillip Carlyle.
“Zac was really determined to do something different from what he’d done before, to take his skill to a different level and he did,” Jackman gushed.
Gracey explained how Efron had been a part of the movie from its earliest stages and praised his chemistry with Jackman. “The rapport that he had with Hugh was immediate," he said. "Their scene work together, the banter between the two of them, it is just fantastic.”
The Greatest Showman grossed more than $172 million at the box office, according to BoxOffice Mojo. The film's fans resonated with its themes of inclusion, especially in breakout soundtrack hit "This Is Me," which was nominated for an Oscar this year.
