I'm not a fan of Samantha Barks and I didn't like her at all in the 25th Anniversary Concert but I have to admit that she impressed me with her performance in this video. I'm glad I watched it all the way through. Arguably the best interpretation I've seen in recent productions of LesMis. Gareth Gates is pretty amazing as well. He should have been in the 25th instead of Nick Jonas. This is for their legions of fans out there. Enjoy! ;)

Things musicals taught me: You can be shot and are bleeding out, yet still have time to nearly finish a duet! 😂❤️🇫🇷

I think they nailed it. People in that situation would be deeply in shock and they convey that. She's staring down at the blood with this utter blank incomprehension, then pulls her coat closed again; she doesn't want him to see how bad it is, her first priority is to protect him, even now. That's VERY true to character. He keeps staring at the blood on his hands the same way, like he literally cannot understand/believe what his eyes are telling him. I can't believe ppl are knocking the acting, I think it's among the most realistic I've seen. They're not just singing a duet here like other pairs I've seen, they're in deep shock and she's DYING. Kudos to them for getting it right.

Samantha barks is just wonderful ....... I could listen to her again and again. I loved her in the movie she sings so lovely and I could feel her pain and sorrow in every word and she has such a beautiful face.

It would have ruined the whole moment if he let out a long NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I would have laughed instead of cried every time during this scene. Love Eponine and I hope to play her in this musical when I get to college. It is truly an honor.

My favorite Marius and Eponine creating my favorite interpretation of A Little Fall of Rain! Loved to see what they did here! This is how I think Marius and Eponine's friendship should be (at least in the musical though). Gareth Gates was especially really good, especially in how he reacted to Eponine's death as a friend (at which I prefer him over the others). And for Sam Barks, her performance was breath-taking, like almost always her others (don't know whether she had a bad performance, but she's human).
I think Samantha Barks was the best thing in the 25th Anniversary concert and she sang them all off the set in the film

Samantha was my first Eponine because the movie was my first experience of Les Mis. She was a true standout in the film and the 25th. She is one of the best Eponine's considering how much experience she has with the character
Nick Jonas was an absolute fucking disaster in the 25th
