Eddie Redmayne's performance fears
Jan 14, 2013, 4:01 GMT
Eddie Redmayne would wake up in a 'cold sweat' thinking about his 'Les Miserables' musical performances.
The British actor portrays Marius in the blockbuster film and admits he was worried about having to sing live as part of his role.
He said: 'I was at dinner the other day and this person challenged me on exactly how I would play Marius.
'You think, I'm not a trained singer and sometimes the thought of singing 'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables' live makes me wake up in a cold sweat.'
Eddie was pushed into auditioning for the movie - which also stars Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe - by his family, because the show had been a favourite in his household growing up.
He added to Grazia magazine: 'We used to listen to the soundtrack on car journeys, my brother would sing Hugh's part and I would sing Russell's, and when they found out a film version was planned, my family was like, 'Come on, you have to do it.' '
