While these new Newt Scamander photos are fantastic and all.

i can’t help


but be reminded


of something


how does he look even more like a pontmercy than when he was pontmercy



Cosette, in her seclusion, like Marius in his, was all ready to take fire. Destiny, with its mysterious and fatal patience, was slowly bringing these two beings near each other, fully charged and all languishing with the stormy electricities of passion,—these two souls which held love as two clouds hold lightning, and which were to meet and mingle in a glace like clouds in a flash.

Marius–Eddie Redmayne

Cosette–Lily James

The Les Miz Cast on the Perils of the Close-up


‘Amanda Seyfried (Cosette)
“I hit the camera a million times, I’m sure. There was one time when Hugh [Jackman] had a laughing fit on my close-up … it ruined my moment!”

Daniel Huttlestone (Gavroche)
“I got hit in the eye with a mic once.”

Eddie Redmayne (Marius)
“It was continually awkward. But Tom made us very aware of that early on. In rehearsal, we sat across the table and he’d go, ‘Right, let’s rehearse it … Action!’ And then he’d come right up to about here [demonstrates by putting his hand within an inch of Vulture’s face]. So we knew what was in store.”

Samantha Barks (Éponine)
“Because Tom Hooper would actually dress the cameramen [in costume] as students, they’d all run around, and one time, I was like, ‘Bah! There’s a camera right there and I didn’t know!’”

Aaron Tveit (Enjolras)
“At first it was something we had to get used to. It was a lot of handheld cameras, so it was a camera and a cameraman — some dude dressed in period costume with a camera in my face. But then, just like anything else, you just have to forget the camera is there, so eventually, we did.”

Wait, it’s Redmayne’s birthday as well?

Combeferre: PONTMERCY! How have you been?
Marius: Not talking up Napoleon, that’s for goddamn sure.
Marius: I will never not be mildly terrified of you.
Combeferre: So young. So cute. You must come back to the Musain.
Marius: No, really. Terrified.
Combeferre: I get that a lot. Come anyway. LOVE YOU, MEAN IT; BYE.
