Colm Wilkinson is the Irish tenor who originated the role of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables and also played the title role in The Phantom of the Opera. Colm, a popular boy’s name in Ireland, is actually pronounced as two syllables—col-um—and means ‘dove’. Many Americans probably heard it first via novelist Colm Tóibín.
