Yes, I wasn't so keen on Sheen at the time, as you say coming after LMK (absolutely crushworthy!!) and also Jo who I *adore*. But I've been reevaluating her recently and just going "You are so much better than so many modern Eponines!
" I think she manages to be interesting or engaging but definitely in the character. She's got that almost crudeness about her that works really well for the Thenardier side of Éponine. I really felt like it was believable that she grew up with those parents!
Though I wasn't overly keen on her Fantine...it wasn't bad or anything, it just didn't do very much for me.
I knew LMK had been in MFL but I didn't realise Anthony Andrews was in it?! My Scarlet Pimpernel fan side of me is now in a fit of utter self-loathing!
