So what's this about Samantha and Nick Jonas? Couldn't believe when I saw her picture on the front of one of those teeny magazines. Go Sam!

Samantha is leaving Les Mis on 18 June at the annual cast change (which looks like another Les Mis casting mistake as most people are going and it means they won't have anyone else who was good from the 25 anniversary concert to support messrs Boe and Lucas in the new cast.)

She's just sung in what sounds like a Les Mis montage (including On My Own?) at the Classic Brits awards 2011, which she says on twitter will be on ITV on May 29 2230.

She's been interviewed there with Alfie Boe http://vimeo.com/23681013

There she mentions that she will be doing some of Alfie Boe's concerts with him - presume some of the ones between December and Feb - no details yet which.

And a recent One Day More with Sam sounding good

That's great news; thanks so much for posting. If she's in it till June, then she should be at Edinburgh. I'll check out further.

Oliver is well under way. Not many reviewers seem to have ventured to Cardiff, But Sam's got some good reviews and there's a nice picture in one.

Can't find any Oliver youtubes yet . But here's a new Les Mis one. A little fall of rain.

There's also a lot of pictures and a brief video under sights and sounds on the tour site.

Sam is Nancy. Needs the sound on full - but gets louder. Assume this is from Cardiff where they just finished.
As Long As He Needs me. Great accent too.

Indeed Its mega. Cameron seems to have come on stage personally at last night's Oliver to announce it as a surprise....

There's a report on broadwayworld and a second with a photo of Sam and Frances Rufelle - who is also in the film as chief lovely lady with at least a couple of other top former Eponines as her lovely ladies.

No idea what it means for the Oliver tour - the film is filming from early spring I think.....

Well done Sam.

Sam on the bBC this morning. With the moment she finds out about the movie.

They are still working out when she switches from being Nancy on tour.

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.

Yes wish they would make it clear. I would do the 4 hr treck to Southampton but probably not if she's away filming then.

Sam - as long a E needs me + reprise. Accent Pat Butcher would be proud of.

Just found out that Sam will be in the movie of Les Mis, I was reading a website with very early oscar predictions for next year, and she was predicted to be nominated for best supporting actress

Given that I doubt if Sam has even filmed her scenes yet, I'd take that with a heavy pinch of salt!

She's only leaving Oliver next week or so, so I imagine they haven't..

They have been filming other bits already - there's some leaked pictures of Valjean in action and the Lovely Ladies scene involving Frances Ruffelle and Nancy Sullivan and other Eponines and Les|Mis graduates has been shot this week going by twitter.

Re Eponine some 25th anniversary rehearsals videos have appeared with shots of Sam and some of OMO.

There's also some shots of Katie Hall. There's a certain symmetry there Sam and Katie - both are in the 25th Les Mis show and now leading the two big 2012 tours of Oliver and Phantom. respectively. Both are 21.
