Taylor Swift Out, Samantha Barks In for 'Les Miserables'

Taylor Swift will not be co-starring in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables.

The 22-year-old country star had been linked to play Eponine, but Universal Pictures has confirmed that West End performer Samantha Barks will take on the role, according to Playbill.

“Most incredible moment of my life!!!!” Samantha, who starred in both the London production of Les Mis and the show’s 25th anniversary concert, tweeted.

She’ll join a cast that already includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne.
