Isabelle Allen: Who's The Girl On The 'Les Miserables' Poster?

No, it's not a young Dakota Fanning. The girl who recreated the iconic Les Miserables poster for the Oscar-nominated movie is Isabelle Allen, who plays Cosette, the forlorn daughter of Fantine (Anne Hathaway). As Cosette grows older, Amanda Seyfried takes over in the role.

Les Miserables is Allen's first movie, but it probably won't be her last. "She’s incredible. Totally pure and unspoilt. She is the movie," costar Hugh Jackman told the Daily Mail.

The British actress, 10, was discovered while playing the male lead in a school play last year. Jeremy Taylor of the National Youth Music Theatre spotted Allen in her role as a lame boy in 'The Pied Piper Of Hamelin' and got her an audition with Les Miserables casting agents.

She's also a team player, tweeting congrats to her costars for their Golden Globes wins Sunday night:

Yay, well done to @realhughjackman, #AnneHathaway & @lesmisofficial for the wins at Golden Globes last night :-)
