Written by Chief Editor.

Bryce Dallas Howard says that Taron Egerton's transformation into Elton for Rocketman is ''unreal.''

"He looks so much like him," she told Insider.

The actress portrays the rocker's mother in the film and said that aside from the 29-year-old's appearance, Egerton also possesses a similar "essence."

"It's not just about him actually doing an impersonation of Elton John," she explained. "It's about his essence and capturing that. It was just so obvious, the sort of physical resemblance. WithTaron really inhabiting him, it just felt like Elton John was on set."

The biopic will be in theaters at the end of May.
