BBC’s Les Misérables: first pictures revealed

Posted Filed under

The BBC have given us our first look at their forthcoming adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Les Misérables – although no singing this time around…

In the jazzy new photos we see Olivia Colman as Madame Thénardier, Adeel Akhtar as Monsieur Thénardier, Josh O’Connor as Marius, David Oyelowo as Javert, Dominic West as Jean Valjean, and Ellie Bamber as Cosette.

The six part series will be written by War & Peace‘s Andrew Davies and directed by Tom Shankland.


Les Misérables will air on the BBC later this year – we imagine around Christmas and the New Year.

We’ll keep you in the loop on this series.
