Taylor Swift is no longer playing the role of Eponine in the upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables.

The singer was said to have landed the role in the film weeks ago, however, Les Miserables producer Cameron Mackintosh has now revealed that the role has been given to British newcomer Samantha Barks, who played the role in a 2010 West End live production and for the twenty-fifth anniversary concert of the Broadway production at the O2 Center in London. No reason for the change in casting has been given.

Barks confirmed the news on Twitter, where she posted: "Most incredible moment of my life!!!!"

The Les Miserables film adaptation's all-star cast includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway.

While reportedly rehearsing for her would-be role, Swift has been spotted walking around London in recent weeks.
