It’s a jungle out there! Taylor Swift continues her tour of London with a trip to the zoo

The full cast has not officially been announced but several publications have reported that Taylor has snagged the role.

She is said to be joining a star-studded roll call, consisting of Hugh Jackman in the lead role of Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier.

The musical is due to hit cinemas at the end of December. Taylor’s trip comes after it was rumoured that she was romantically linked to High School Musical star Zac Efron, after the pair recently enjoyed an intimate dinner together.

But if 24-year-old actor Efron fancies Taylor he has a very strange way of showing it. Taylor was alone networking at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Utah last week while Zac was out partying with Ashley Tisdale.

Efron and Taylor were seen being rather flirtatious when the pair allegedly arrived at an Italian restaurant and ‘were deep in conversation and very giggly’ earlier during the week.

After a red carpet appearance together to promote their upcoming movie The Lorax, and gushing remarks about each other, the couple were thought to be more than just friends.

But while many people expected Efron to arrive on the arm of Taylor at the Sundance Festival, she turned up by herself as he was partying with another woman.

Efron instead opted to hit the town with another former co-star, Tisdale, and the Disney actress posted a picture on Twitter of the action. Joined by a group of friends the gang looked ready to paint the town red as they headed out in a black Escalade.

Ashley and Efron have also been romantically linked in the past after he was pictured with her during his break-up with ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.

Ironically though, she is currently dating Taylor’s ex boyfriend and Boys Like Girls frontman Martin Johnson. Taylor made the most of her time at Sundance however and was seen mingling with a host of stars at the iconic festival.

She was joined by director Rory Kennedy and then chatted to the festival’s founder and Hollywood legend Robert Redford.

Later in the day she attended the Artist at the Table Dinner and Discussion held at The Shop and was thrilled to meet singer and actress Mary J Blige.

The soulful star was sporting an elegant blonde hairstyle and seemed happy to answer a few of Taylor’s questions.
