'During that time Emma Watson came over to our house for dinner. We were talking about the dress and the dress design and Willow, who was five at the time, overheard the conversation.

Dan explained: 'They created this [the Beast] out of two different kinds of CGI technology fused together - never been done before.
'So I was puppeteering a muscle suit on set, covered in grey Lycra on 10inch stilts, so all the body happens on set. It was very heavy and hot and awkward.
