Samantha Barks

If there was a huge asteroid hurtling toward Earth threatening to destroy life as we know it and you could see one more show before you die, what would it be? It can be anything you want - a show you’ve seen before, one that you wish you’d seen, or something you’ve made up entirely. What would be YOUR Last Show on Earth? This is the podcast in which we ask a special guest the big, BIG question that nobody ever needed or bothered to ask. 

Our guest this episode is Samantha Barks

Samantha Barks is an award winning actress and singer who rose to fame in the BBC talent show-themed television series I'd Do Anything in 2008 and achieved global fame after making her film debut as Éponine in Les Miserables in 2012 (a role she also played in the West End and at the 25th Anniversary Concert in 2010). She is currently starring as Elsa in Frozen the Musical at Theatre Royal Drury Lane and has played leading roles in shows such as Chess, Cabaret, Oliver Chicago, City Of Angels, Amelie and Pretty Woman both in the West End and on Broadway. Originally from the Isle Of Man, she now divides her time between the UK and the USA and performs all over the world. She has released three studio albums: Looking in Your Eyes (2007), Samantha Barks (2016), and Into the Unknown (2021) and can be seen as a judge on TV shows 'All Star Musicals' and 'Mamma Mia I Have A Dream'
