Fra portrayed revolutionary student Courfeyrac in the West End stage version of the movie before being only one of two actors chosen to transition onto the silver screen, alongside Hollywood stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.
Following the success of his film debut Fra told UTV's Malachi Cush it was an "unforgettable experience".
"It's been a crazy year, after the film coming out everything seems to have got very exciting and things are looking well," he said.
"The film was an incredible experience and to see my family and friends' reaction was fantastic.
"I grew up with Les Miserable, I would sing the songs and that's how I learned to sing. So to be involved in the West end production first was incredible in itself.
"To be working alongside people like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne was an unforgettable experience.
While Fra continues to tread the boards, he has returned to Northern Ireland to support his father's upcoming big night.
Frank Fee will be taking to the stage at Belfast's Grand Opera House on 27 October in the smash hit comedy Affluence.
The satirical play depicts the lives of Protestants and Catholics living on Duck Island, Strangford Lough who have lived life without flush toilets until a mysterious character arrives with a solution to their plumbing problems.
"Treat it very comically and treat it sympathetically, so everybody gets a laugh out of it," said Frank.
"It'll be fantastic," added Fra.
"Affluence is a brilliant show - whenever Frank first did it I was 'sound operator' because I loved the show so much, I wanted to be involved in any way I could.
"My love of theatres was down to Frank bringing us to shows at the Lyric Theatre in Belfast and also being surrounded in his world of theatre.
"That was enough to make me realise that it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life."
And while Frank insists he may not emulate his son's success, he is proud to watch Fra shine in the West End.
"My humble endeavours are much below that level of achievement and performance," he joked.
"(Though) it is brilliant, something outside of our realms of experience, but we really love it."
