- Character: Jean Valjean, always and forever. My opinion on him and on the other characters was strongly influenced by the book (for instance, Eponine isn't as sympathetic a character in the novel).
- Voice: Javert. Deep, resonant, authoritative, and just plain gorgeous.
- Costume: Javert. Again. The actor looked awesome in the uniform and the broad shoulders gave him an imposing aura of authority (along with the voice, of course).
