Samantha Barks not only plays Eponine in the movie version of Les Miz, she’s also played the part on the stage. It’s a great opportunity to read her compare the two experiences – I especially like in the first interview how she describes the outside elements placed upon her as she prepared to sing live for the movie (it was 5 am, raining, and she had paint on her teeth).
And here’s a comparison between her singing On My Own on stage at the 25th Anniversary Les Miz concert, and then in the movie.
What do you think? Which is better and why?
