why do you like that brazilian guy as grantaire so much?
I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!
Well, first of all, because he actually is the Brazilian Grantaire. His name is Bruno Sigrist, and he’s currently playing Grantaire (and he’s also the cover for Jean Valjean) in the brazilian version of the Les Mis, in its current run here in São Paulo.
I know it looks like I just woke up one day and decided I’d talk about this guy non-stop (ask @sonhoedesrazao and @thranduil-aran-edhil. They’re more than aware of how obsessed I am with him), but after I saw his performance as R I was totally blown away. He’s an amazing singer and he’s also delivered one of the best, most honest performances as our favorite drunk cynic I’ve ever seen. Plus, he’s got some great pipes??
Here, this is him singing Defying Gravity in five different languages. Just for the record, it’s not five different versions of the song. It’s just the one…alternated between five languages. And this is him performing Prince’s Kiss, from the Rock in Rio musical. Holy high notes, Batman!
Besides, he isn’t just incredibly talented. Noooo, much like our dear George Blagden, he’s also adorable as fuck. An actual cinnamon roll and an angel. Always super approachable and incredibly nice to his fans. And the best part is that he’s aware of how cute he is, so he really abuses that power, which leads to some amazing Instagram-stories and interviews (*_______*).
Also, he’s super cute?? (pictures under the cut)
