Who will perform the roles of Eponine and Cosette in the upcoming film ‘Les Miserables’, an adaptation of the musical of the same name. Country star Taylor Swift will portray Eponine and actress Amanda Seyfried will bring the role of Cosette to the big screen.

If a rumor initially reported in the New York Post last November is to be believed, Swift’s casting in the role of Eponine is a huge step in her acting career and a major victory over the many other actresses she had to beat out in order to secure the role. These contenders included actresses such as Evan Rachel Wood, Scarlett Johansson, and Lea Michele. The parents of Eponine will be played with Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Thernardier and Sacha Baron Cohen as Mr. Thernardier. Other than music videos, Swift’s prior acting credentials include a guest role on CSI, a part in the movie “Valentine’s Day”, and voice work in the upcoming movie, “The Lorax.”


In addition to acting, Seyfried is a classically trained opera singer whose prior work includes the film musical, “Mamma Mia.” Anne Hathaway will be playing Fantine, the mother of Seyfried’s character. The remainder of the cast includes Hugh Jackman in the role of Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe who will be playing Inspector Javert.

Eddie Redmayne, who last fall starred with Michelle Williams in “My Week With Marilyn”, will continue his extraordinary good luck by starring with both Swift and Seyfried as he plays the role of Marius.
