  2. Samantha Barks, Les Misérables, 2012.     Many were called – Lea, the Glee TV stat, Lucy Hale, Scarlett Johansson, Hayden Panettiere, Taylor Swift, Evan Rachel Wood – before producer Cameron Mackintosh went on the Manchester stage of her Oliver! Gig to announce Samantha had won the role of Eponine. “Most incredible moment of my life!!!!”
  3. Alexandra Daddario, The Layover, 2016.      Was all set to be Michele’s next feature break after New Year’s Eve, except she was tied to her new TV series, Scream Queens. And so it became Daddario’s next job after her outstanding True Detective breakthrough.
