Celebrated Hollywood actress Emma Watson states that she was scared of co-star Dan Stevens from Beauty and The Beast because she thought Dan would break her foot when practising for the waltz sequence of the film.
The Beauty and the Beast actors had to rehearse extensively to film the iconic waltz along with the song for the Disney's live action fairytale classic adaptation.
"Dan was essentially wearing steel-capped stilts. I was slightly terrified my foot was going to get broken or we were going to end up in a heap on the floor. So it had an extra edge to it," says Emma Watson in a statement.
Although the actress was worried regarding her foot, she also said that waltz sequence had been a fantastic way to build a healthy working relationship with her co-star Dan Stevens.
"It was actually a really good pre-film bonding. We got to know each other and learned to trust each other. I would recommend all couples go and dance together, stamp on each other's toes, be completely off-beat. It's perfect," Emma Watson added.
"A waltz is the perfect way to do that because you are dizzy and breathless. You are having to put trust in the other person. You are learning how to keep time and rhythm with another person, not just yourself. It's the perfect metaphor." The actress explained further.
