Uploaded on Wednesday 12 December 2012


My life is now fulfilled – I’ve witnessed Wolverine sing! And boy, does Hugh Jackman give his blood, sweat, and tears for the role of prisoner 24601, Jean Valjean. Jackman carries the movie from start to finish. You see him skinny, young, old – and a brilliant performance all throughout. In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted him to the role of Jean Valjean
*** The rigorous 3-hour audition process
*** The Valjean diet of no food, no water, and 3-hour exercise
*** The transformation of his character
*** What was his connection to “Les Miserables?”
*** I told him a secret – why I love the movie better than the play
*** Wolverine the Musical
