Really pleased for Sam and looking forward to seeing her in the film. I must admit I hope they can work it so that she's still in Oliver in Edinburgh somehow, because I've been looking forward to seeing her in that too. But if they can't, they can't; this is definitely a big opportunity for her.
From her twitter Sam is going back to do 2 weeks of the Edinburgh run. Someone asked her which two but she hasn't yet answered - you may need to know that answer?

They have been filming lots of Les Mis - which must have been interesting for her as the bulk of the cast is made up of past cast members from Les Mis including her cast and other people from the West End.

Thanks. That would be great if I get to see her in Oliver and the Les Mis film. I'm not counting my chickens, but definitely keeping my fingers crossed

Think thats it. Nancy Sullivan, Alexia Khademia and Frances Ruffelle are there at 1-02 - thats the Eponines before and after Sam and the original.

Imagine Sam will be on another trailer. There's no sign yet of Helena Bonham Carter either.

I went to see Oliver today and Sam was indeed back playing Nancy for a couple of weeks! She was excellent; she's really grown, as a singer and even more so as an actress, since I last saw her in Cabaret.

Brian Conley was a fantastic Fagin too; in fact, everything about the production was really, really good.

I've posted this on the Sarah Lark appreciation thread as well, but Sam is putting in a "guest appearance" at a concert version of the Little Women musical on Sunday: http://www.londontheatre.co.uk/londo...ala1111584.htm

(Sarah Lark is playing Beth, Helena Blackman (Maria) is Belle Gardner and Daniel Boys (Joseph) is Laurie.)

Loved Sam and haven't looked on here for a very long time.

Was just watching IMDB trailers of up and coming movies and was pleasantly surprised to see Sam in Les Mis trailer.

Wow! What a cast she is working with

Another longer interview.

She says she's going back into Oliver which only has two stops left and Dublin ends the day after the film comes out here - which may leave some of Bristo's shows ?

Saw Les Mis recently and Samantha Barks was really amazing It's great to see someone from the ALW shows do so well, and also great to see how much she's developed and improved as an actress/singer

She must be the most succesful out of every contestant from the ALW shows?

Just back from seeing Les Mis. Wow! What a fantastic film (though I did miss Dog Eat Dog). Sam really was fantastic as Eponine.

And Anne Hathaway really has earned an Oscar with that one. She had nowhere to hide as an actress as Fantine and couldn't have been better. Off the topic of Sam, but I had to say.

Depends how you measure success - leading roles. on stage time, roles played, niches filled, people moved, applause ...... Sam's certainly now been seen by most people...and she's got the advantage that she's still only 22 and is now the one with most name recognition........

She's a strong contender for smallest waist and best shot too......

Sam is now back in Oliver in Cardiff and getting great reviews for it too.
