First Look: Hadley Fraser’s Javert

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.

    Hadley is going to be awesome! Definitely not in proper full makeup yet, but looking good all the same! This brief excerpt just makes you want more & more!

    Thanks for posting – Albert Hall is an elegant, intimate venue which seats 8K vs the 02 which holds 25,000. Oh, and the large orchestra is a bonus. Hadley plays a v-fine Javert – sideburns are kinda strange, used to seeing him in full beard for past year. Alfie and Samantha are excellent in their roles – love watching both of them perform. Yea! Have tickets for Les Mis tour in Denver 9/4 – can’t wait!
    Anxiously awaiting The Phantom of the Opera 25th Birthday Celebration next October 9th to be held in this fine concert hall – should be an amazing experience with Ramin Karimloo leading the cast.

    • It’s my understanding that the Royal Albert Hall seats only 5250, but either way, those Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary concert tickets are going to be highly prized. The scalpers will have a field day!
