If we were to jot down a list of the most charming young actors to recently enter our lives we’d be here a while — but Taron Egerton is the one name you can be sure to see high up on that list.
Since donning a swanky tailored suit alongside Colin Firth in Kingsmen: The Secret Service, the 27 year old has been on our radar for, well, a lot of reasons.
He’s remained true to his name — which means thunder in Welsh — by making quite the “storm” with, not only his acting chops, but with his immense likability. From his humbleness, his adorkable nature (yes, we’re bringing adorkable back,) cheekiness and, let’s be honest, dashing good looks, we just can’t get enough of Taron Egerton.
He’s starred in various films and made-for-TV movies in the U.K, but is now making his mark in Americawith the Kingsmen films, his flick with Hugh Jackman Eddie The Eagle, and the upcoming animated film Sing. We kind of just know he’s one to watch.
Let’s all take a moment to relive some of Taron’s most charming moments.
When He Flawlessly Belted George Michael’s “Faith”
Yeah, we have faith in his future. This is probably one of the best things we’ve heard on Tumblr
Proving that sexy geek is totally, 100% possible.

When He Geeked Out Over Despicable Me
This is as cute as his love for Monsters Inc. and Billy Crystal. (See: His appearance on The Late Late Show)
That Time When He Thought Someone Touched His Bum, and Nearly Had an Existential Crisis
Don’t fret Taron – it was apparently just a handbag.
When The Discovery of Sweet & Salty Popcorn Changed His Life
Yes. We’d have to agree that sweet and salty popcorn wins every time.
We know this needs a caption but strangely, we just can’t find our words at the moment… How odd.
His Friendship With Hugh Jackman
…And Colin Firth

Remember When He Asked Us Out To Dinner?…
