Eden Watts (born June 4 2001) is a young actress who has played little Cosette in the 2012 US tour of Les Miserables alongside child actress Sarah B'Dacy. At the time Eden was eleven years old. She has been extremely active in the acting community. Her first role was when she was only six, and she has had parts in many musicals since. Despite having many roles however, Eden's biggest job has been in Les Mis, since all her other parts have been mostly local.
The image to the right shows Eden's school picture when she was with the cast. She was then starting middle school.
Eden was born on June 4, 2001 in Pittsburgh, Pencylvania to Lily and Ernest Watts and became the youngest of four sisters. Her elder sisters are Esme (born February 1994), Clementine (born October 1996) and Amy (born April 1999). She once said that she thought growing up in a home with many people in it helped to inspire her to take drama, because you always had to bring attention to yourself and try to be the center of attention.
She has been taking acting classes since the age of four, and made her debut onstage at age six as Gretl in The Sound of Music.
In her early acting years Eden kept her roles for shorter, six-month runs, like most child stars. However, around the time she started working with Les Mis she has been able to take on roles for longer periods of time, even if they are only in local theater. She has also been working in more serious plays, such as The Color Purple.
