EXCLUSIVE: Dan Stevens on The 'Beauty and the Beast' Motion Capture Suit We Can't Unsee

The 'Legion' star called Emma Watson a 'total pro' for acting alongside his CGI suit.

ET's Leanne Aguilera caught up with the actor and his fellow Legion cast members at Comic-Con in San Diego, California, on Thursday, where he finally addressed the Beast in the room -- and gave major props to his Beauty and the Beast co-star, Emma Watson.

"She's a total pro! Nobody's dealt with [more] weird things than she has," Stevens confessed of the Harry Potter star.

"You were pretty hot in that outfit," Stevens' Legion co-star, Jean Smart, joked. "You're OK on your own, but..."

"Thank you," he graciously replied.

As for whether Stevens' suit might find a new home on Legion, showrunner Noah Hawley didn't seem opposed to the idea.

"I think it would be great to spend millions to create a motion capture suit to then turn you into yourself," he said to Stevens.

"I can just grow my beard, that would save a lot of time," Stevens joked to Hawley's stamp of approval. "I like it."
