She’s the star of Fox’s hit musical dramedy “Glee,” but Lea Michele could soon be misérable …
The 25-year-old part-Spanish actress has reportedly auditioned for the role of Éponine—the headstrong girl who falls for heroic Marius—in the cinematic adaptation of the hit musical, Les Miserables, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Should she land the role, the Tony-winning actress’ career would be coming full circle. Michele made her Broadway debut playing Young Cosette back in 1995, when she was just 8 years old.
Michele would join a star-studded cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.
The New York Post‘s Page 6 initially reported that Michele, Taylor Swift, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood had each auditioned for the role.
