I have to say, you really can tell the difference there between the musical theatre stars and those from Hollywood. Sam and Aaron stand out very strongly.

Indeed. But it would have been even more obvious in the film if they hadn't cut Eponine's role a bit and cut some of her big notes. Its a case of the need for big names dictating all - if they had gone for a couple more musical theatre stars - and had a Javert who could sing the role - it would have sounded much better - but then the rest of the cast would have looked decidedly weak.

Meanwhile, Sam is up for a best movie newcomer award if people vote for her.

And she's also in a new movie A Christmas' Candle alongside Subo and a Dr Who.

and she is in Now........

She's also appearing at the Hollywood Bowl as Velma in Chicago for 3 days in July.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollywood_Bowl
Not sure if thats a concert or she will have been practising her high kicks and cartwheels.......The shame is the producers gave up on Chicago London just when they had some good new options for Velma and Roxie - so she can't actually play the role here. now .....

There's now a film trailer for The Christmas Candle her new film.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2fzS13Qdj0
Out Nov 22.

Samantha has been filming Dracula.

There is hope of seeing her on a stage sometime though. In a super Eponine fest she's currently involved in workshopping a new musical with Frances Ruffelle.

It may have a football theme............. some recent/coming musicals have turned up with weaker casts than those that workshopped them, though.

Sam' Bark's film, The Christmas Candle, opens here Dec 13 with some cinemas showing an advanced screening on Dec 8. Its already opened in the USA.

There's a longer trailer here.
http://www.filmdates.co.uk/films/561...istmas-candle/

Sam has been filming Dracula (oddly Lauren's been filming a horror film too)

She's also appearing on C4's Sunday Brunch next week, and in December's Marie Claire, and she's also singing for 4 days at the Indoor Garden Party, Coffs Harbour with Russell Crowe. This may be in the one in Australia if anyone fancies a long trip.....

She seems to have filmed
Dracula Untold http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829150/

The Christmas Candle is now released in the UK , but doesn't seem to be on with the big chains - yet anyway.
There's another trailer for it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7wDwKy-Hb4

There's very good Sam Barks news. She's back in a West End Musical
http://www.whatsonstage.com/london-t...reg_34558.html
City Of Angels. with Rosalie Craig who led in the Light Princess with Amy. Its on 5 Dec - 7 Feb

The very bad news if you want to see her is that the Donmar is reportedly a 250 seater, the seats went on sale first to its theatre club, and within 15 minutes of going on public sale this week, the show had sold out. There may be some seats released later http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showt...1437032&page=3. Hope for a transfer to somewhere bigger........
