During a recent interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Ellie said she is learning to play piano for Les Misérables.
“I am learning piano at the moment for a TV adaptation ‘Les Miserables’ with Dominic West. I play Cosette, who I also played at school. I can just about read music, and I can sing, but I’m a long way off being able to play by ear but I really love being able to learn another skill and the fact that I can have a keyboard in my living room, so I can go off and do other things then come back and play piano for a bit.”
Ellie plays Cosette in the BBC’s new adaptation that begins filming in March in Belgium. According to reports filming will take place until July.
