les miserables

HOLLYWOOD – Resident inebriate and charmer, Sir Edwin Fluffer gives us a fascinating insight into the making of the years most popular films.
The director Tom Hooper owed me a favour after I had to drop out of The Queen’s Speech for legal reasons, so when the call came I made sure I was first on set. Unfortunately I got the day wrong and was there a week early. When I went back again they were already half way through shooting, so we felt it best if I took a step back and lent some of my credibility to the crowd scenes. 
I was overjoyed to see dear old Russell Crowe again: we still laugh about him getting me fired from Gladiator for refusing to wear the sandals. Les Mis was an absolute joy to work on, and after a few takes I couldn’t help joining in with some of the songs. If I can’t get another Oscar for this one I’d be more than happy to accept a Bafta, or if push comes to shove even a Golden Globe.
