Okay, I have an absurd amount of these, so, here I go.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183587159
This girl is my Éponine. I have no idea who she is- I think she's some kind of Cosplayer. She just worked so well for my vision of Éponine while reading the brick that she just totally became my Éponine.
However my modern Éponine is actually fairly different:http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183587162
This, friends, is the lovely Millie Robinson. She's a teenage photographer from England who does mostly self-portraits- I saw her picture and was like "OMG Éponine!!!11" and I'm still not sure why. Something just clicks for me with her, I guess, so she's my modern Ponine.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183587160
I know it's been said before, but Samuel Barnett is a total freaking Jehan, I'm not sorry.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183587986
Dan Stevens as Courfeyrac. This photo is kind of touched up, but it is PERFECT- I need more photos of him like this. The hair looks auburn, the eyes look green- basically my headcanon Courf is exactly like the way Colonel Despard draws him, and this is HIM, in real life.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183611156
Darren Criss is unashamedly my Marius- I'm surprised no one's brought him up before. He's pretty enough, he had the black curls and the forehead, and most importantly he has the nostrils
. He just needs bluer eyes and he is perfect. So, yes, Darren Criss as Marius for me, thank you.
For my Azelma, I dug up ginger!Elle Fanning- while she certainly doesn't look homeless, she looks lost and scared and very, very small- not just young but emotionally. She looks like the girl who would, under the shield of her mother and sister, blindly punch out a window because "daddy told me to". While Azelma does seem to get better later on, Elle is my Azelma, no doubt.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183588634http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183605163
This is my Fantine. Fantine is supposed to be young- she is supposed to be beautiful. This has to be a girl that a guy like Tholomyes would willingly spend two years with. So, yes, Holliday Grainger is my Fantine.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183605158http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183605159
Good god almighty, this guy.
This, my lovelies, is Gaspard Ulliel- a very, very fit young man who I think works very, very well as my Combeferre. He is pretty- my Combeferre must be pretty, because I actually want to marry Combeferre and I am petty like that. he isn't perfect, though- if only he had brown eyes and a bit of a squarer jaw, he would be my perfect headcanon...http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183605161
Virginie Ledoyen made a lovely little Cosette in the miniseries.
And Abigail Breslin as baby Cosette, after Valjean adopts her.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183605166
Speaking of babies, tell me that this little girl was not born to play a young Éponine.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183588633http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183588632
And as Azelma I've brought in Francesca Capaldi, who I liked because she's actually quite adorable, and she and Brielle Barbusca (young Éponine) actually look as if they could plausibly be sisters.http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183588630http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183588631
My Thenardiess is pretty much Jenny Galloway, but oddly enough my Modern Madame T is actually quite different. Look at this lady:http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183611155
Why is she wearing a garbage bag? Not sure, but I'll bet you anything that it's another one of "Jondrette"'s harebrained schemes to gain sympathy from those rich people at the church. This woman would also work well for my canon era Madame, because... to be honest, I don't think Madame Thenardier should really be all that ugly.
Well, I mean, there's this:http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183611154
and then there's this:http://teresasdollhouse.webs.com/apps/p ... =183626204
And honestly... I prefer Galloway better, or even a little less than Galloway- like garbage-bag lady. Because, it's important for Madame T to be ugly- she must be ox-like, and rude, and hideous- but she also has to be human. She isn't some stupid comedic relief, she's a genuine human being and a very bad person. That's why I hate the Thenardiess' who go all out ugly-funny, because that's so one dimensional and really wrong
. I think that if Madame Thenardier looks like an actual human being instead of a caricature, the actress portraying her can make her ugly, purely based on what is inside of her- because what's inside is pretty bad.
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.
I honestly have no solid Enjolras' or Valjeans in mind... hell, or a Bahorel, or a Bossuet, or a Feuilly, so if anyone has any suggestions...
