Too much singing for the LesMis movie cast!

According to today’s Sun the director of the Les Miserables movie Tom Hooper is making his lead stars, including Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, sing the musical’s vocally challenging numbers over and over again to ensure he gets the perfect take. 

Every big musical number is being recorded live which is a real challenge to the cast. Some of the principals (including Hugh Jackman) are musical theatre stars and used to using their voices in this way but it’s taken its toll on some of the cast members who are losing their voices.

A source said:  “It has to be note-perfect or Tom won’t use it - he’s a real perfectionist”.  As well as throat sweets, production assistants at Pinewood Studios in are making up ginger and lemon drinks to help soothe the vocal cords, which the cast are being encouraged to drink despite their taste.
