Ramin Karimloo Talks LES MISERABLES Toronto & Broadway
West End regular Ramin Karimloo stars in the current revival of LES MISERABLES in Toronto, poised to bring his starring role of Jean Valjean to Broadway later this year and he comments on the Toronto run, Broadway, his tattoo obsession and more as part of a new interview.
"I do want to get two more," Karimloo says of his most all-consuming off-stage hobby - tattoos.
Adding further value to their presence, Karimloo says, "I bought two pocket watches for each of my sons from 1849, so they are going to get those watches when they turn 18 so I figure I'll tattoo those watches there with their birth times on them."
Furthermore, Karimloo asserts of his Broadway debut in LES MISERABLES later this year, "As far as my prep for New York goes, they want me to gain a bit more weight, so I've been working out with a trainer six days a week, who is killing me!"
"That's the only prep that I am doing because I don't want to miss what is happening every night here, because it is my homecoming," Karimloo relates.
Karimloo concludes of his journey with LES MISERABLES so far, "It's going so fast, so I am just trying to live each moment."
