There may not have been a red carpet and hordes of screaming fans, but for Dungannon-born actor Fra Fee, seeing the opening night of Les Miserables at the Ritz Cinema in Cookstown was every bit as big a deal as the world premiere in London last month.
"In many ways, I think tonight's even more special, because my friends and my family, those that I love, are here," he said.
"It's really special for them and it's great to be here with them, watching it."
Fra was one of just two actors to make it from the stage production to Tom Hooper's big screen version.
In the movie, he plays Coufeyrac, a revolutionary student and Friday's big family gathering for the opening night was thrilling for him too.
