Amanda Seyfried has warned fans she might break down when she performs one of the emotional songs in the Les Miserables movie.

The Mamma Mia actress has been cast as Cosette in the big screen version of the much-loved musical and told Access Hollywood it is a dream come true.

"This is my all-time favourite musical, hands down. I fell in love with it when I was 11 and first saw it. I know every lyric, I know every song. I was Eponine from 11 to 15 in my head," said the 26-year-old, who is a trained singer as well as an actress.

"When I was 15, I got into classical music and I was playing Cosette in recitals."

Amanda added: "When we all sing One More Day, I honestly don't know how I'm not going to cry! It's so intense.

"It was like half my life that I dreamed about this and I never had any expectations of it coming true."

The film is expected to be released later this year and also stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter.

Samantha Barks, a finalist in TV talent show I'd Do Anything, has been cast as Eponine.
