Les Misérables in One Minute: Broadway's Nikki M. James on Where Éponine Went Wrong
"I end my life so that he can live happily ever after…with some other girl."
Tony winner Nikki M. James stars as Éponine, one of Les Misérables' many tragic heroines, in the show's new Broadway production at the Imperial Theatre. Éponine is (SPOILER) the odd man out in a passionate love triangle, but according to Nikki M. James, there's no need for her story to be quite so sad. "There are moments where I'm like, Éponine, you have many opportunities to completely thwart this romance," explains the exasperated actress. See for yourself what James thinks her misguided character could have done differently.
