Endless List of Favourites + Characters ||  Cosette (Les Miserables)

take an eye for an eye! turn your heart into stone! this is all I have lived for! this is all i have known! one word from him and i’d be back beneath the lash, upon the rack. instead he offers me my freedom.  i feel my shame inside me like a knife.  he told me that i have a soul.  how does he know? what spirit came to move my life? is there another way to go? i am reaching, but i fall and the night is closing in as i stare into the void, to the whirlpool of my sin.  i’ll escape now from that world, from the world of jean valjean. jean valjean is nothing now.  another story must begin!


When she sang that song, it broke my heart. There was something that she did in that song. I remember I was with Danny Cohen, the cinematographer. Samantha had to sing in the rain again and again. She was shivering. There’s a moment when she has sung her huge last note. She has her head into her chest and she goes, ‘I love him,’ and her head comes up. It’s like she finds the thought.
