Apparently filming has been delayed due for Sacha suffering some vocal issues. (But then it is being reported by The Sun, so...you can never fully trust them., but i do know there have been some delays recently)

That's from The Sun, which should always be taken with a grain of salt. It's the same source the proclaimed Crowe was having vocal problems which he vehemently denied on Twitter.

All that being said, there are doing some "inn" filming this week and it does sound like filming had been rearranged last week and this week, as quite a few of the West End actors can't make it this week and are being replaced with others. Most of the filming is done and this should be the last week (most of the principal actors are back home). Sounds like this week wasn't planned, so perhaps there's some truth to the story.

Not sure how wrap parties work considering so many of the cast finished filming ages ago, but Hugh at least will not be there as he's hosting TropFest in Bryant Park that night.

Wrap Parties are held when filming is fully finished. Countless 'talent' (actors) don't attend them for obvious reasons: they are now off the production. Mainly the 'talent' (actors) and crew working up until the last day of filming attend the Wrap Party. Not everyone involved in the production attends them.

I've always detested the 'tradition' of calling actors 'The Talent'. It's demeaning to everyone working behind the scenes, who have just as much (if not more) talent.

I call actors "trained seals." It's a term of endearment.

I've never heard anyone outside of porn being called "the talent." Strange.

Maybe BrodyFosse was imparting to us the porn wrap party. He could also reword his statement to: "Wrap Parties are held when filming is fully finished. Countless 'talent' (actors) don't attend them for obvious reasons: so many have came and went."

The film officially wrapped at midnight, June 22!

Many cast members got a memento jacket --

Les Mis Filming Has Started


Must be like a badge of honor, after what they had all gone through in the filming of this movie ( live vocals sung to the nth time, freezing rain/water for the convicts, mud and cold for the lovely ladies, fighting scenes shot again and again for the barricade boys, chopped hair, long and arduous filming of inn scenes including new scenes not found on the stage show, etc., - all done in a span of 3 1/2 months! Quite a feat for an epic movie, which is also a through-sung musical!

Here's probably another version of the jacket ( the other one has "24601" clearly embroidered - they must be using the Valjean ID numerals for merchandise branding for this movie version)

At the shortfilm festival held at Bryant Park at the weekend, host Hugh Jackman was interviewed and he had this to share about Les Miserables --

http://www.vanityfair.com/online/oscars/2012/06/hugh-jackman-les-miserables-russell-crowe-eddie-redmayne

>>Jackman’s apparent high-energy level showcased his skill as an actor: “I finished Les Miz at 2 a.m. last night in London, and I can’t believe I’m standing,” he told VF Daily before taking the stage.

We asked if anybody on the Les Misérables set surprised him with his or her singing ability. “I suppose everybody, really,” Jackman said. “I don’t know about surprise. Everybody had to audition for this part, so there were no, like, surprises. It’s not like anybody came on set who hadn’t already had to show what they could do."

Russell Crowe has dabbled in rock music, but can he carry Broadway melodies? “Oh, I knew he could sing. He’s fantastic,” Jackman told us. “Eddie Redmayne is going to blow people away. I mean, everybody.”<<<

Filming was completed on June 22. Comments are being made by some of the stars (particularly Anne Hathaway since she's on interview rounds), some examples (apparently a lot of "mind blowing" will be going on LOL):

Anne:

>“Hugh is going to blow people’s minds in the movie,” Anne predicted. “There’s something so deep and almost spiritual about his performance. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“Russell also blew my mind,” said the actress, pixie-ish in her short do and little black dress. “I’ve never seen an actor work as hard as he did to become Javert and to increase his vocal range. When Russell sang ‘Stars’ to me, I cried. It was so full of emotion and nuance, and his voice was so strong! It was like heaven every day to be with two beautiful men with such goodness inside of them.”

Laughing, she quipped, “It made me want to make all my projects musicals.”

Anne choked a bit as she answered our question on her experience singing “I Dreamed A Dream,” the musical’s haunting anthem. “The way we approached ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ is very different than it is on the show,” she began. “We put it at a different spot in the movie. In the show, it happens after she loses her job at the factory. In our version, it’s after her first experience as a prostitute, so I was really in a raw place when I did it. It was painful.” ...

Anne pointed out, “My version is very different. I performed it first for Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg.” Anne said that once she got the composers’ approval, she gained some confidence, but she was still daunted when it was time to shoot the scene.

She recalled, “On the first take, I definitely felt the weight of the song’s fame and its iconic nature. Tom Hooper came up to me. I said, ‘I’m scared, Tom.’ He said, ‘It’s not an iconic song. This is a woman’s soul that you are expressing. Just focus on that.’ I did, and the next take was the one he went with.”<<

http://entertainment.inquirer.net/50859/anne-hathaway-on-her-iconic-catwoman-and-fantine-roles

Aaron Tveit:

>“Les Miz was incredible, challenging, amazing,” he said of playing student revolutionary Enjolras. “I can’t wait to see it. Russell [Crowe] and Hugh [Jackman] and Annie [Hathaway] are just going to blow people’s minds.”

Part of the challenge, according to Tveit (and co-star Hugh Jackman) came from director Hooper’s choice to have the actors sing the famous score live during filming rather than use tracks produced later in a recording studio. As Enjolras, Tveit had to perform numbers like “Do You Hear the People Sing” and “One Day More” at full voice during long days of filming. Luckily, the vet of Hairspray, Wicked, Next to Normal and Catch Me If You Can had his Broadway experience to rely on. “I knew how to prepare myself physically for it,” he explained. “You’re working 12 or 13 hours a day and singing the songs over and over and over again. That’s so hard! I did feel like I had an advantage because I know the grind of an eight show week, which really helped. It’s gonna be fantastic.”

Also fantastic? Tveit in his French student look, which we got a peek at when on-set photos of the actor and co-star Eddie Redmayne (Marius) were leaked. Tveit, for one, was enthusiastic about his flowing locks. “It was good!” he said with a laugh. “It was very transformative. The wig is an important part of the costume, and it put me right in the period.” <<

I don't care what anyone says I'm glad that Eponine looks gorgeous. I mean, look at her boobs. See, people need to separate the novel from the musical. Yeah, Eponine is ugly/creepy in the novel, but Eponine was meant to be pretty/spunky in the musical. Two very different characters, and people need to accept that.

As much as I appreciate ridiculously attractive Eponines (and let's face it, Samantha Barks definitely is one), I'd rather have an Eponine that plays the character true to the book. There's enough room in her role in the musical for an actress to give it more than the spunky/lovesick interpretation we often get (Celia Keenan-Bolger is my favorite example of this).
