Eddie Redmayne behind the scenes of Les Misérables
I think, of all of the performances in the upcoming, Les Mis movie, I am most excited for Eddie Redmayne’s Marius. Yes, he is a superb actor, but he also has a disgustingly good voice that, musically, really could not be a better fit for the role. He’s a tenor, but he’s also got a strong lower range that Marius needs to pull off songs like ”Empty Chairs at Empty Tables.” In fact, I’m already crying a little just in anticipation of his performance of that song.
The above recording is of Eddie Redmayne performing “Ave Maria” with the Eton College Choir. Listen for the first soloist and you’ll hear what I’m talking about.
Is this movie out yet???
