Getting to this point however takes a lot of work backstage.
Just ask the actor who plays the beast.

The hair helps to make that transformation
Workers first put in more than one hundred pins to help keep the wigs in place.
They then glue up his face and add hair to his chin and even on his nose. (GLUE SHOT AT 17:24 then shot of putting on beard at 18:02 and nose shot at 19:08)

From there, it's time to dress up the beast.
He first puts on his body costume which as you might imagine raises the body temperature just a bit. (SHOT OF FAN HERE AT 27:19)
It gets even hotter after workers put on the beast's cap and then the pants. (SHOT at 29:44)
Walking is made easier by the fact his boots are made out of reebox sneakers.
He'll need it especially after he puts on his chest armor which even includes a hump on his back (SHOT AT 33:48)
It may all look scary but remember this show is a love story. (SHOT OF SHOW)
