Post It's literally got everything: David Thaxton Fangirling
Okay, guys, we really, really needed this thread, seeing as we were basically spamming every single thread on the Les Mis board. :mrgreen: And I reserved the right to open it... So.

Title taken from the legendary Les Mis recap DT did on the video of the 23rd anniversary ("the most epic, deep, dark, difficult, romantic, beautiful, funny... it's literally got everything").

So, um, yeah. feel free to gush, really.

Okay. YouTube Supreme [has been updated with * for some time but it's become too much...]:

I have a question, what is 'The Jump' that people keep referring to?

Oh and I shall be glad to enlighten you (I'm in an extremely good mood today).

See, during the Final Battle Marius manages to injure himself and falls to the ground writhing in pain. And Enjolras sees that. Now, David Thaxton glances down at dying!Marius (he's basically at the top of the barricade there) and then just jumps down onto the stage. You know, he could climb. But he doesn't. He goes "Oh. He's dying.JUMP!" And if you're in the front seats of the Stalls it's really awesome and scary because DUDE IT'S HIGH.
And he does that really weirdly fantastic thing where he... moves his leg mid-air. He basically "pedals". This makes it sound a lot funnier than it is.
xD

I love you for mentioning that. :lol:


I'm feeling the need to fangirl his 'Hold yourselves in readiness!' He almost growls it sometimes.

HOOOOLD YOURRRRSELVES IN RRREEAADINESSS!
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Yes.

well, come to think of it, we basically fangirl everything. I must mention the "Will you take your place with MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" now, too, because he outsings the ensemble there (and that's how it should be done).

but DT!Courfeyrac must have been absolutely epic from what I've heard. Then again, I wouldn't have been able to suffer through Bailey!Enjolras (more commonly known as Ewwwwjolras), my Enjolrasheart would have died. I mean, he looked at DT!Courfeyrac for support during the Final Battle. wtf.

ETA: haha, yes. "I'LL SHOOT HIM! I'LL SHOOT HIM RIGHT BETWEEN HIS BLOODY EYES!" ("I don't care! I'll do it ANYWAY!") ... oh man. (sorry, I had to quote it again. xD)

damn, I have a video of that scene with him but it cuts off the jump! You just see him leap off the barricade and then it cuts down to him on the ground with Marius.

That's quite a jump, isn't he worried about breaking a leg? :lol: I'm surprised they haven't made him stop for liability reasons.

I've been wondering about that, too... but you know, I have this theory that he does not actually worry about anything or, for that matter, THINK during his performance. It... it just doesn't seem like it ;) But it sure as hell is dangerous.

Ok, I'm jumping on board. I just found him today, thanks to you lovely people. So...anyone want to show me clips of him in action?

and this is unrelated to him, I know: but I fangirl marius' fall there as well. It's amazing.

Oh man, I absolutely cannot wait to see Thaxton. :lol: We should've had a thread like this back when Aaron Lazar was Enjolras, there was certainly enough fangirling fodder what with the amazingness that was his performance and various stage-door anecdotes. Some of which I've been forbidden to post on the internet. (And if you think Thaxton's legs are fine, you should've seen Aaron. He had this habit of bending over the table in ABC Café to lecture Marius...)

I adore the interaction between DT and Mark Dugdale's Courfeyrac (am I allowed a little Dugdale fangirling in this thread since it is related to DT too? :wink:)
I love his 'COURFEYRAC...you take the watch', followed by The Stare, and a slightly hurt look from Dugdale. :lol:
Dugdale's Courfeyrac is very strong and could easily overpower another Enjolras, Simon Bailey for example, but DT manages to control even him. :mrgreen:

I so need to hear this. I only saw that cast once and missed it. :(
I can totally imagine DT doing that though.

This thread is making me very happy. :mrgreen:

:D YES. I'll make a complete list and post it on here, 'kay?

Aww, Orestes Fasting, it's not solely about the legs. it's The Legs during The Jump. Although I have yet to go back and pay attention during Valjean's "Revenge" as the whole "leaning over the barricade"-thing happens that has been commented on quite often by certain fans *WINK*.

Aaaand, Madeleine, Dugdale!fangirling like
