Photo Flash: See the Cast of BBC One's LES MISERABLES
Following the initial images of Dominic West (Jean Valjean), David Oyelowo (Javert) and Lily Collins (Fantine) back in July, BBC One has released images of Olivia Colman (Madame Thénardier), Adeel Akhtar (Monsieur Thénardier), Josh O'Connor (Marius) and Ellie Bamber (Cosette).
Andrew Davies' six-part drama adaptation of Victor Hugo's 19th century classic will delve deep into the many layers of Hugo's story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert's cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest. With striking intensity and contemporary resonance, Hugo's novel explores the struggles and triumphs of the underclass and the quest for a better life.
The six part television adaptation of the renowned book will vividly and faithfully bring to life the vibrant and engaging characters, the spectacular and authentic imagery and, above all, the incredible yet accessible story that was Hugo's lifework.
