The star-studded cast of Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh's upcoming motion picture adaptation of the smash mega-musical Les Misérables recently sat down and talked about each of their roles, as well as the filming process.

Directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), the rest of the cast is led by Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Samantha Barks (Eponine), and Eddie Redmayne (Marius).

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, "Les Misérables" tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after Valjean breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

"Les Misérables" opens across North America on Christmas day.
