Top 10 Portrayals of Javert in Les Miserables (West End / Broadway)

BenCallinicos

The Top Ten

1 Phillip Quast Phillip Quast

The DEFINATIVE Javert. He delivered the best rendition of Stars in the history of the show. The determination, the obsessiveness, the power and the seriousness really show in this legendary performance that was made popular thanks to the 10th anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall in 1995. Perfection. - BenCallinicos

2 Roger Allam Roger Allam

The original that isn't really talked about. A really talented actor who gets overlooked. He had a rich baritone voice and a really scary looking face that really milks the role and should always be remembered. - BenCallinicos

3 Earl Carpenter Earl Carpenter

This man's powerful rich baritone really makes this performance soar with such passion, aggression and power that makes his suicide scene even more gut-wrenching, that cast in general is amazing but Earl is so terrifying and so memorable that I couldn't resist putting him on this list - BenCallinicos

4 Hadley Fraser Hadley Fraser

Many people love Hadley in general but his Javert was very popular as well as Ramin's Valjean. These two are basically the bromance that makes this combo generate such a fan-following. - BenCallinicos

5 Jeremy Secomb Jeremy Secomb

I saw this man play Javert back in 2015 and he was wonderful. I found out later that he was the understudy for Phillip Quast back in Australia. No wonder he was so good! Learning from the legendary portrayal that many people look up to! - BenCallinicos

6 Norm Lewis Norm Lewis

While he's not the best as Javert for me, I much prefer him as the Phantom, he has made history as the first African/American to play both of these parts which is really ground-breaking. His baritone voice can be out of control at times but still his performance is always wonderful. - BenCallinicos

7 David Thaxton David Thaxton

His voice really took a lot of getting used to but still his Javert was very compelling. - BenCallinicos

8 Killian Donnally Killian Donnally

Even though he just understudied for the part back in 2010, many people were really impressed with his take on the role. His rendition of "Stars" blew everyone away! - BenCallinicos

9 Bradley Jaden Bradley Jaden

Not seen the guy play Javert but I saw him play Enjolrus back in 2015 and he was excellent. I have heard that he's really good as Javert as well. Even though he's still very young. - BenCallinicos

10 Tam Mutu Tam Mutu

Not a favourite of mine but he did pull off an excellent performance and he is very good actor. - BenCallinicos
