Samantha Barks
Katie Montana: Samantha Barks or Laura Osnes
@JenGreenwald: Samantha Barks

Stage and screen actress Samantha Barks, who brought Eponine to life on the big screen in the recent film adaptation of Les Miz, also played that role in the London production in 2010 and again in the show's 25th anniversary London concert at the O2 Arena. Barks received great praise for her portrayal of Eponine, both on stage and on screen. The actress, who also appeared in the Hollywood Bowl production of Chicago and has been seen on the West End stage in Oliver! and Cabaret, would be making her Broadway debut if she played Maria in a revival of The Sound of Music.
