Les Misérables Fra Fee Interview
Fra Fee has gone from an aspiring young actor living in a small town in Northern Ireland to appearing in the Academy Award nominated blockbuster, Les Misérables. Before he was snapped up by Oscar winning Tom Hooper to appear in the movie version, Fra starred in Les Misérables on the West End stage. We managed to catch up with Fra despite his increasingly busy schedule and he told us all about his journey to life in the limelight.
Check out what Fra has to say about his transition from stage to film as well his antics on the Les Misérables film set.
Fra goes on to discuss the “Barricade Boys”, building the Les Miserables set, Russel Crowe and onscreen bloopers!
Five Fra Facts
|1 – Fra Fee||His name might seem unusual, but it’s actually short for Francis, although he assures us that it’s only his mum that actually calls him that.|
|2 – Fra’s Family||Fra comes from an acting family! Fra says his dad is a “tremendous actor” and his three older sisters also have a penchant for the dramatic arts. Fra’s dad often took the Fees to the Lyric Theatre in Belfast to see shows, which inspired Fra’s love of the stage.|
|3 – Fra Fans||Fra has had an surge in fans following his work with Les Misérables. He is looking to name the fans (in similar style to Gaga’s “Little Monsters”) and suggested the “Fee Friends” as a possibility. He will accept answers on a postcard!|
|4 – Fra Flee||Fra goes where the wind takes him. He first left Northern Ireland to study in Manchester before moving to London to start his musical theatre career. Fra now has his sights set on New York after becoming enamoured with the city. Fra says: “I’d happily serve pizza in New York for a few years. I love the city!”|
|5- Fraser, Hadley||Fra is greatly inspired by his friend Hadley Fraser, who played both Marius and Javert in the stage version of Les Miserables. Fra said: “I respect actors such as Robert Downey Junior but Hadley I admire.”|
