Not a big fan of Gareth.  I saw him in LM and he was just all right.  Especially in the dramatic parts.  I cannot see him handling this kind of part.

How about Antony Hansen? Personally I think he'd be amazing as Chris.
Seen:
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (UK tour, Wolverhampton), RENT 20th Anniversary Concert (Stoke-on-Trent), Evita (UK tour, Wolverhampton), Wicked (London), The Commitments (London), Les Miserables (London), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (UK tour, Birmingham)

Oh no to Gareth, he was OKish on Les Mis tour, but I find listening to the tour recording his voice is the weakest. No to Mark Evans too.
My personal preference would be for Scott Garnham (I've probably said this before). It's about time he was given a lead as I think he's ready for it and has the singing and acting ability to handle this role. His Enjolras was really strong

Ben Forster? Oh no I don't fancy that casting at all. There needs to be a certain experience behind the actor who gets Chris imho. The ones that Ive seen (Bowman, Karimloo and Shannon) had all got plenty under their belt when they got the role from what I can recall

I agree. He's definitely got what it takes to be Chris, he's young, he's got the voice and the acting chops. It would be great casting and well-deserved. But they may want a 'name' as Chris.
