In fact, we’re still not ready to believe this rumor is actually true. But IF it is … did Taylor really deserve the part? Sure, she’s gorgeous. And a beautiful singer. But Eponine seems like the role that Lea Michele (Rachel) was BORN to play.
Her first role on Broadway, at the tender age of 8, was that of Young Cosette in Les Miz, after all!
What do you think? If the rumors are true, has the film version of Les Miz made a terrible casting mistake? Or do you think Taylor may actually have been a better fit for the role?
