Karimloo & Barks Join Les Mis O2 Concert Cast

Full casting has been announced for the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary concert at the O2 Arena on 3 October, which has added a matinee performance due to "extraordinary public demand".

Newly announced cast members are Ramin Karimloo (currently playing The Phantom in  Love Never Dies), who will play Enjolras, and Samantha Barks (currently playing Eponine at the Queen’s Theatre) who will play Eponine.

They join the previously announced company of over 300 actors and musicians, including Alfie Boe (Jean Valjean), Nick Jonas (Marius), Norm Lewis (Javert), Matt Lucas (Thénardier), Lea Salonga (Fantine), Jenny Galloway (Madame Thénardier), Camilla Kerslake (Cosette) and the casts of the original production at the Queen’s Theatre, the new 25th anniversary production at the Barbican, and members of the original 1985 London cast. 

Cameron Mackintosh said today: “Our latest Eponine at the Queen’s, Samantha Barks, who I first met as a hugely talented finalist in BBCTV’s I’d Do Anything ... has proved to be such as success performing with Nick Jonas and Camilla Kerslake, that we just had to have her for the concert.
