Only really familiar with Lily Collins, though I recognize a few other names. I'm getting excited now, we hadn't had news of the series for a while. Still waiting on the casting of the barricade boys though... :roll:

Lol, when I saw the news item this morning my first reaction was 'oh that's still happening?'. :lol:

Not familiar with the work of any of these actors actually, so will keep an open mind.

ETA: oh wait I recognise Olivia Coleman. Wow she really is in every UK show isn't she.

I love David Oyelowo and am thrilled that he’s getting this opportunity! Kinda wish he was playing Valjean instead, as that’s more in line with the other roles I’ve seen him play; but then again, he does have the range for either. I know Olivia Colman and I’ve heard of the actors for Valjean, Fantine, and Cosette, but I’m not that familiar with their work. Hope they’ll do well!

Dominic West was in Pride and is therefore awesome, though ...not much about that film suggests Valjean :lol:

Olivia Colman is an interesting choice, but I think will be better than HBC.

Don't know any of the rest at all! probably a good thing to be honest.

Really waiting for news of Enjy and the students though.
