Not only that, but think about trying to choose which version that you prefer more.
OH GOD. That’s pretty damn difficult.
I have MANY different favourites for each role, many different favourite for each song etc!
I’ve seen both the old West End version and the newer tour version (with John Owen Jones and MY GOD HIS VOICE is out of this world) so I have favourites from those I’ve seen too.
Pretty much impossible!!!!!! But, the 10th Anniversary is probably my favourite overall. Ruthie Henshall. NOBODY BEATS her in my eyes for Fantine and the same goes for Philip Quast. He’s my Javert. But then there’s Lea Salonga…
I was lucky enough to see Samantha Barks as Eponine and she was wonderful so I’m pleased she’s in the movie…. as is COLM! It’s awesome that he’s included as he’s Les Mis legend :)
(I could rant about this all night… let me retreat to my bed and sleep!!!!!!)
That’s like trying to pick a child (which I do not have but could imagine it’s impossible).
I think it’s a toss up between One Day More (never ever listened to it without crying), Stars, At The End of the Day, Little Fall of Rain, Master of the House and the Epilogue (with the angels - because that makes me cry every.single.time)
So basically I can’t choose but they’re all goosebump inducing, heart pounding incredibly moving songs so HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE when they’re all so good?
I most certainly have :) It’s rather beautiful. Such a damned shame they didn’t keep it in the episode - lord knows why because it’s charming, romantic, heart felt and pretty massive for them as a couple.
Typical, though, right??
I’m actually writing something based off it (trying to kick start my writing again) but I won’t post anything until it’s all done as I don’t want to disappoint anyone what with my writing being a little temperamental recently!
Does it make you sad not having the time to write anymore or is it just a nice reprieve that'll make you more passionate when you get back to it?
Oh anon. It’s not that I don’t have the time to write anymore because I do have pockets of time and a holiday coming up etc, its just that I struggle to motivate myself recently to tackle LIFE nevermind channel creativity.
When your mind is filled with other things and a myriad of not so nice things then it is hard to make it produce something decent nevermind filled with emotion and imagination. I won’t write unless its good and I have the drive to do it or else it’d be awful
I hope I get it back soon but, yes, it does make me sad that I haven’t written for a while because I need to keep working at it and practising but it is taking all of my energy and focus to get through the day at the moment and that is too important for me.
Today I got a basket full of holiday clothes (in an already pretty cheap shop) for half price because the shop assistant wasn’t watching what he was doing and I got a Mocha Frappucino for half price in Starbucks Happy Hour.
How did I NOT know that MOFFAT was getting this massive award?!
He’s an infuriating human being with a penchant for winding people up. He’s not perfect (who is?) but he’s a bloody FANTASTIC writer, has an unending passion for what he does and a great deal of adoration for it that shows in his work. He’s created shows and characters and storylines that I love deeply.
