SAMANTHA Barks is pictured taking to the red carpet ahead of the movie premiere of Les Miserables in London on Wednesday evening.
The Manx singer and actress, who reprises her Eponine stage role in Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s film production, wore a Stella McCartney dress for the occasion.
The screening took place at the Empire in Leicester Square.
But anyone wishing to know what the critics thought of the movie, which runs to 2hrs 40mins, will have to wait. Universal have placed an embargo on any reviews appearing before Tuesday (December 11).
Sam, 22, grew up in Lonan and first rose to fame when she came third in the BBC’s I’d Do Anything, Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s search to find a face to play the role of Nancy in his West End production of Oliver!
A series of high-profile musical theatre roles led her to Les Miserables, where she played the tragic Eponine to critical acclaim.
