After his Cameo role in the phenomenal Les Misérables movie the legend of musicals Colm Wilkinson performs in Ireland and UK this summer.
COLM WILKINSON IN CONCERT - BRING HIM HOME TOUR 2013
One of Broadway’s most distinctive voices, Ireland's Colm Wilkinson is best known as the original Jean Valjean and the Phantom, roles he created and embodied in London, Toronto and New York productions of Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera.
He played Jean Valjean in the 10th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall (1995) and has gained many new fans since his guest appearances on both 25th Anniversary Concerts of Les Misérables at the O2 London (2010) and Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall (2011).
Colm plays the Bishop of Digne in the new Les Misérables movie alongside Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe.
"I was delighted to be asked to play the role of the Bishop of Digne in the movie version of the greatest musical ever written... Twenty eight years ago as the original Jean Valjean I started an extraordinary journey with the Bishop of Digne setting me on the long road of reincarnation and salvation. It seems to me as I now take on the role of the Bishop that the journey has ended and I have come full circle". Colm Wilkinson
