Following several months of anticipation, the BBC has unveiled official stills from its blockbuster six-part TV adaptation of Les Misérables.
A star-studded line-up, including Lily Collins, Ellie Bamber, Olivia Colman and Dominic West are seen in period costume for the upcoming drama — which, it has been revealed, will not be a musical.
Ellie Bamber, 21, who plays Fantine’s daughter Cosette, is pictured in a plush blue coat with fur trim alongside Josh O’Connor, 28, who plays Cosette’s suitor Marius Pontmercy.
The six-part drama, follows the story of French former convict Jean Valjean, played by Dominic West, as he struggles to escape his past while being pursued by police inspector Javert.
Written by Andrew Davies, who adapted War and Peace for the BBC two years ago and Pride and Prejudice in 1995, it has been filmed in Belgium and northern France.
It is believed it will be shown on BBC1 around Christmas or New Year.
