Les Miserables | TV Casting

Nina Gold is currently casting for a vital and gripping new 6 x 1-hour adaptation by multi-award-winning Andrew Davies of the Victor Hugo classic novel LES MISERABLES – one of the greatest works in Western literature which depicts the hero Jean’ Valjean’s primal struggle with society, examines the nature of law and grace and gives a voice and story to those who usually fall between the cracks.

They are looking to assemble a diverse, vibrant, whip-smart group of world-class actors to play the visceral and iconic characters who populate this extraordinarily timely story. All six episodes are to be directed by the superb Tom Shankland.

This is a Lookout Point/BBC Studios production for the BBC, co-produced with The Weinstein Company.

When: Production dates (eg. shoot, rehearsals) dates are 22nd January to 24th June 2018 (with a hiatus from 26th March to 8th April)

Readthrough and rehearsals will commence from first week of January 2018
Character profile: Eponine (Female). Aged 17 – 21. Non – Caucasian.

We are looking for a totally mesmerising working-class actress full of fire and life for this leading part. She needs to be a hugely charismatic, street-wise, super-smart young star-in the-making. It is important that she is achingly thin – the girl cannot afford to eat for days at a time. One of three heroines of the piece, we chart her life from a spoilt childhood through to surviving threadbare on her wits on the streets of Paris and to her final death in the arms of the young student she has always loved but who has never loved her in return.

A better acting opportunity for a clever young actress would be hard to find. We are keen to explore non-Caucasian actors for this part.
