On December 3rd, the cast of Les Misérables – including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, and Eddie Redmayne – took part in the New York press conference. Hopefully videos will eventually be released from the event. In the meantime, check out‘s account of the panel, in which Hugh talks about the original song “Suddenly,” written exclusively for him:

“I’ll count it as one of the great honors of my life to have these two incredible composers write a song with my voice in mind.”

“Victor Hugo talks about two lightning bolts of realization for Jean Valjean. One is of virtue when he meets the Bishop, and one is of love when he meets Cosette. It describes how for the first time in this 51-year-old man’s life, he experiences love. Tom said, ‘This is one of the most incredible dramatic moments ever and we don’t have a song for that?'”

“He doesn’t just walk away with Cosette. He’s terrified and full of love and anxiety, like every parent. I’ll never forget first singing it. I felt like I’d been singing it my whole life.”

You can also read various quotes from the press conference here.
