Last night, a mix of current and upcoming Les Misérables cast members performed on the Classic Brit Awards television broadcast, giving us our first look at Hadley Fraser’s Javert. Here’s the video clip. (Thanks to summerdress14 for uploading the video and Soliloquy for helping me to find it so quickly.)
Naturally I had to make screencaps. My thoughts? It was difficult to capture stills of Hadley Fraser when he wasn’t looking demonic! Javert is not a nice fellow. I also believe, and this is just a guess, that Fraser is not in full makeup yet. He’s looking very young for a guy who’s been chasing Valjean for almost thirty years. Not that I’m complaining. I will take any glimpse of him I can get. As for the new cast, they begin performances on June 23rd.
Update: Oh, so you want to see demonic? Okay. Here.
