Hey Lilyians! BBC has released the first look at Lily Collins, who is set to play Fantine, and her co-stars David Oyelowo and Dominic West in the upcoming mini-series Les Misérables! Along with the photos, we bring you a small video released which features a few scenes of the mini-series (yes, we get to see a little bit of Fantine)! There is still no word on when the mini-series will air, aside from that it will be in 2019. What do you think of this first look? I am excited to watch this mini-series!

Fantastic news, Lilyians! Our girl is set to star in BBC’s Les Miserables Mini Series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’s joined by David Oyelowo and Dominic West and production is set to begin next month!

BBC One and Masterpiece have set the cast for its forthcoming take on Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Miserables.

Set to star in the six-part drama from Andrew Davies are David Oyelowo (Selma), Dominic West (The Wire, The Affair) and Lily Collins (Okja, The Last Tycoon).

West will take on the role of Jean Valjean, which the actor called “one of the greatest characters in world literature.” “His epic journey of redemption is one of the extraordinary roles an actor can take on and I can’t wait to get stuck in to bringing Andrew’s brilliant adaptation to the screen,” he said in a statement.

Oyelowo will be taking on the part of Javert, joining Collins as Fantine. The cast also includes Adeel Akhtar (The Night Manager) and Olivia Colman (The Night Manager) as Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, Ellie Bamber (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Cosette, Josh O’Connor (Ripper Street) as Marius and Erin Kellyman (Raised By Wolves) as Éponine.

Davies will go back to the original novel and delve deep into the 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. Davies, Faith Penhale for Lookout Point, Bethan Jones for BBC Studios, Mona Qureshi for BBC One, Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece, West and Oyelowo will executive produce. Tom Shankland will direct the series, which was was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content. Production is set to begin next month in Belgium and Northern France.
