I'm very relieved it's not Taylor Swift. VERY!

OK So now it's official;Cameron Machintosh has just joined the ranks of the mediocre. In God's name man what criterion do you justify this casting? This is a girl with an almost invisable CV and who could not even win the "search" contest? And she is going to be playing a crucial role in this movie? ! Can she even begin to act a dying scene? Sir Cameron you know there is a far.far better Eponine here in Holland-you saw her-as did the composers- and were in tears at the end of her performance. She has a CV that few people of her generation can challenge and awards to go with it. She was also the first person you chose for the Dutch production which was an innovative one (new arrangements etc) Had you cast a real undiscovered talent that would have been something else; but everyone knows this girls limitations. This is your "Crown Jewel" show and you and I know that by walking on stage and making this announcement and this choice you have just made certain that this "Les Mis" is going the way of ALW's various movies i.e, nowhere Sir Cameron-you blew it!

Samantha Banks has actually played Eponine on stage before, so I'm sure she can handle it.

Les Mis producers, I see what you did there! haha! They used Taylor Swift so that the public will be relieved even if they cast a mediocre Eponine (just like what happened here). The truly great ones are too old to play the role anyway. Still let's give Sam credit. Given more training,she might just pull it off.. It's a movie anyway and not Theatre so anyone can actually play the roles, the wonder of Autotune!
