Director Tom Hooper was auditioning last November a number of women to play the role of Eponine in his upcoming film adaptation of the musical Les Miserables. Among those who auditioned were reportedly Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson, Evan Rachel Wood and singer Taylor Swift.
Taylor Swift has reportedly been offered the role and she beat out the likes of Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson, and Evan Rachel Wood.
Even though Taylor’s acting experience consists of her oh-so-memorable big-screen debut in Valentine’s Day, where she had the difficult job of convincing audiences that she was attracted to Taylor Lautner, the bigwigs behind the star-studded movie apparently prefer a fresher face for the role.
Should she accept she will be joining Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway with Amanda Seyfried also offered a major part.
