Samantha Barks Cast as Rebecca Almazoff

Samantha Barks, the break-out British co-star of Les Miserables, has signed on to play Rebecca Almazoff, the female lead role in Strike!. Said Barks in a recent interview, “I listened to this musical and just loved the music so much…I really fell in love with this character — she’s very ahead of her time, she’s a suffragette, and I love her passion and her forward thinking, and how she sees the world how it could be rather than how it is. I was really moved by that.”
