Samantha Barks is a Manx actress and singer.


Born in Laxey, Isle of Man, Barks began dancing from the age of three and first became known after releasing an independent album in 2007. This was followed by an appearance on the television talent show I'd Do Anything, where she reached the final stage.

Despite not winning the show, Barks became a popular singer and performer, making her film debut in Les Misérables. She also appeared in the television series Groove High (as well performing the theme song) and the theatrical drama A Hundred Streets.


First becoming recognised due to her appearance on the musical talent show I'd Do Anything, Barks made her musical debut as Sally Bowles in a touring production of Cabaret, before playing the role of Eponine in Les Misérables, a part she would reprise for both the 25th Anniversary Concert and film adaptation.

As well as going on to appear in such musicals as Oliver! (as Nancy) and Amélie (originating the title role), Barks also released a number of albums, beginning with Looking In Your Eyes in 2007 and appeared as a guest on albums by Tim Prottey-Jones and Dougal Irvine.
