So I'm still having a lot of Narnia cast feelings. I'm not entirely sure where this came from. I have this theory that because there were about three years between each movie, it's a sort of biological clock thing? Like some part of me recognises that three years have passed and there has not been a Narnia fandom resurgence and so it's like. Psst. Hey. HEY. IT'S NARNIA FANDOM TIME.

Or something. Alternatively, as [livejournal.com profile] starsimpulse put it, "Narnia is like this old flame that you keep going back to for comfort and embarrassing sex."

Anyway I've been getting super nostalgic and missing the days of talking about the Narnia cast on LJ and then I kind of realised that I can still do that?? So this is going to be kind of an update post where I talk about what everybody is up to these days. Maybe? Let's see.

Anna, as I mentioned before, is currently starring in Reign! And it's been picked upfor a second season! Although the season finale is tomorrow and apparently some people are gonna die, so I'm terrified that one of them is going to be Lola. I guess it would be good in some ways for her not to be tied down doing a series, so she can work on other things, but still. I'VE GROWN ATTACHED. Anyway, it is a totally ridiculous show, sort of like 30% historical drama and 70% Gossip Girl, and if you have any strong feelings about historical accuracy then it could very well give you an aneurysm. But it's really fun?? And she looks ridiculously pretty all the time and there is definite potential for femslash. I wanna know if any of the Narnia cast watches it, because I can imagine Georgie getting OBSESSED and like really emotionally involved in Anna's character's storyline and texting her after each episode and asking for spoilers and stuff. SHE JUST WOULD. Anyway, Anna's also been in a few other things—Payback Season, in which it seems like she had a pretty minor role, and a web series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.

Here are some screencaps from Reign, of Anna being beautiful. These alone really should be enough of an incentive to watch, imo.

Also the cast are cute and hang out together! Here is a quote from Adelaide Kane, who plays Mary Queen of Scots: "The cast all hangs out, and we play Cards Against Humanity, go grab drinks, stuff like that. (...) Most recently, I went dancing with Anna [Popplewell] and Caitlin [Stasey]. That was a really fun night and we ended up having a snowball fight on the way home. Which is not a good idea when it is subzero. (laughs) And we walked home from the bar, which is a bit goofy." IDK basically what I'm saying here is that I want femslash about the characters AND the cast. Here are a couple of examples of Anna and Caitlin being adorable:

Georgie stars in Perfect Sisters which just got a limited release but can be found online, and she is AMAZING in it. It's this really dark movie about these two girls who kill their neglectful alcoholic mother by drowning her in the bath. So that's...kind of a dramatic departure from Narnia. Also, it is a terrible movie. But, you have to see it anyway, because Georgie honestly blew me away. She's so good. I wasn't anywhere near as weirded out as I thought I might be seeing her kiss someone and smoke and swear, and I feel like I've basically seen her grow up, so I feel like that's a testament to her acting skills. ALSO the other sister is played by Abigail Breslin and the two of them have awesome chemistry and I'm not going to lie, it's pretty easy to ship their characters. Here is a gifset I made to back that up.

Here is the trailer for the movie, and here is a video of her talking about working with 'Abby' (♥) and being hilarious about her first on-screen kiss. There's another one here where she talks about her inability to ride a bike and I just thought that was adorable. And here are a couple of stills:

She's also filmed a movie called The Sisterhood of Night, which is like, a modern interpretation of the Salem witch trials, or something? Which sounds really cool. There's no release date for that yet but I am EXCITED FOR IT. It sounds like it has a predominantly female cast, too, which is neat (and also might provide more femslash opportunities). Here are a couple of stills:

ALSO she went to the premiere of James's new X-Men movie the other day, which is ADORABLE. I hope they got a chance to catch up. There aren't any pictures, not even just of her on her own, but there is this Instagram video as proof that she was there. She's also in her first year at Cambridge at the moment.

Skandar is currently in his last year at Cambridge, and for some reason it took me a really long time to realise that that means the two of them are at Cambridge together, which is ADORABLE. They're in different colleges—Georgie is at Clare College and Skandar is at Pembroke—but apparently they are only like 15 minutes walk from each other and I really hope they hang out sometimes. Anyway, Skandar had a year abroad in Lebanon and wrote a series of articles for Cambridge's news site about his experiences, which were published between April and June last year. Here they are: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight. They're pretty interesting. And a little bit scary. The fourth article is about a blood-letting festival, and there are pictures, so it's rather gory. The last one ends with the line "I'd rather be known as the village idiot than Edmund..." which made me sort of sad, but obviously it's understandable that he'd be sick of being recognised around Cambridge and so that would make a change? Idk. Don't resent Narnia, Skandar.

Here are a couple of pictures. He has that terrible haircut again, the one he had during the promotion for Prince Caspian. SKANDAR WHY. Otherwise he looks really good though. I miss him a lot. It seems like he's still very invested in his studies and everything, which is great, but I do hope that he'll return to acting again at some point. :(

Will is still in L.A. He was in an episode of Perception, which I found out completely by accident because I was watching the show anyway and it was basically like "hey that guy kind of looks like William Moseley WAIT." He was like this ridiculous prince or something who was a suspect in that week's murder investigation. That's the only thing I've actually seen him in since Narnia, but apparently he's filmed three other movies—Run, a crime thriller which is also about parkour (?), something called Of Corset's Mine or Randi which I can't find further info on, and a historical war drama called The Silent Mountain. Also a couple of things that are in post-production, including a series called The Royals. I guess he likes playing royalty. Also he was struck by lightning while filming The Silent Mountain, which is kind of alarming, but apparently he's fine.

This is not an attractive picture but it amuses me because that's the same top he wore to promote Prince Caspian with Ben on TRL FIVE YEARS AGO. (Is it bad that I recognised it right away?...Probably.)

From The Silent Mountain.

From Run.

He seems to be dating Kelsey Chow, who was in Run with him, and even now, the idea of him dating a woman is still weird to me. IT JUST IS. I'M SORRY. (I actually couldn't decide whether or not to mention this because idk anything about anyone else's personal lives, and it's not really something I've ever liked to talk about, but they seem to be attached at the hip so it seemed odd to leave it out.)

Ben was in The Words which I remember being excited about when I first heard about it because Olivia Wilde is in it too, but then I completely forgot about it, and it turns out his role is just 'Young Man' which doesn't sound terribly significant. Also, The Big Wedding, which sounds complicated and ridiculous and got terrible reviews. And he played a Colombian. :/ Ben, can you please stop putting on dark make-up and pretending to be a different race? Anyway, he also worked on a few more projects that are currently in post-production—a crime drama called God Only Knows, some romance thing about a musician called Your Right Mind, and he's also the lead in a fantasy film called Seventh Son that's coming out next year.

He's been in L.A. a lot too, so I hope he and Will have hung out at some point! They did both go to the Just Jared Halloween party in 2012 but I don't think there were any pictures of them together. Here are some recent pictures of him on his own though. He basically looks exactly the same as he did four years ago, because he NEVER AGES. What is with that.

Will P. recently won the BAFTA Rising Star award, which is cool, and his acceptance speech was really cute. He starred in the comedy We're The Millers which I haven't seen but apparently it's good so I might watch it? Also he's in The Maze Runner which is coming out in September and that's kind of exciting because Kaya Scodelario is also in it. (And Dylan O'Brien, who I believe is one of those teen wolves that a lot of people seem to like.) I just googled 'Will Poulter' to get some recent pictures, and one of the first things that came up was an article with the heading Actor Will Poulter: It took three hours to put on my prosthetic penis for my new film. EXCUSE ME? We're The Millers sounds sort of insane. Also, this quote about being recognised made me laugh out loud: "I think when you have eyebrows like mine and you are the size of a baby giraffe you just naturally get stared at in any case." He is so cute.

In October last year, it was announced that there were plans to make a movie of The Silver Chair. Then in December it was confirmed that David Magee would write the screenplay, but there hasn't been much news at all since then. Last month, the screenwriters for the first three movies said they thought the producers had been changed and that there wasn't a studio, so that doesn't sound too promising, but who knows. (Whole interview here.) I can't believe how much older Will P. looks now compared to how he looked in Dawn Treader, though—if they do make Silver Chair, that might be a problem? How much time actually passed between those two stories, in the books?

Okay what else. Both of the Wills are on Twitter (Moseley, Poulter) but nobody else, I believe. Anna likes to "send postcards" and is "a bit of a Granny about these things" [x] and Georgie "would communicate via carrier pigeon" if she could [x]. (They are adorable and now I'm imagining them keeping in touch by sending each other letters.) Last summer, this happened:


Okay I think that's everything? I mean it's probably not everything, but it seems like a reasonable summary.

Somehow I've ended up making gifs of the Prince Caspian DVD commentary on Tumblr, and in order to do that, I basically transcribed all the cute/funny/interesting parts of the commentary. I feel like since I went to the effort I should probably post all of that here, like I did for the LWW one a few years back! I always meant to do it because the only other post I'd made on the PC commentary was when I first listened to it and I don't think I went into much detail. And I'm really determined to try and drag as many people as I can back into this fandom with me.

Oh oh, also! The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] prunesquallormd finally finished his epic Lucy/Susan fic, With A Clouded View, and you should all go read it right away if you're interested in that kind of thing, because it's utterly lovely and he worked really hard on it for a really long time. ♥ Edit: I forgot to mention it's also on AO3, here!

Finally, Anna grew into her looks. She always had the potential of being a beauty so this was fantastic to see.

Georgie is still so lovely, I too was hoping that she and James had a few moments together during the premiere.

It's weird looking at Skandar since it's him but he's all grown up. He was a very pretty child so growing up kinda roughened him up a bit and even if he's still cute, it's almost like a funhouse mirror of him, with his features just a tad off-kilter. I'm sad that he's trying to distance himself away from Edward, but I can understand. While the 3 others (and Ben) can get away with being the heroes of Narnia, there's always that whole stretch of the movie that Edward was an a-hole -- and that must be irritating for people to ask/tell him.

Wow, unfortunate hairline, William.

It's amusing that Will Poulter is the most famous of them now,

BinBons is hot in those Fault pics.

Yeah! I always thought she was beautiful but when I started watching Reign I was surprised by how grown-up she looks. I guess I don't really think about people's looks changing that much after the age of about 20, but she definitely has a more sort of adult beauty now if that makes sense.

She is! And I really hope they did. It's so sweet that she's still interested in supporting his career and stuff.

I find Skandar really attractive but I think I know what you mean, haha. And yeah that's a good point about Edmund being kind of the bad guy, at least in the first movie (which is probably the most well-known one) - I can see why it would get annoying just being recognised all the time in general, but it'd be even worse if people were actually being rude to him.

Yeah...you know, I didn't realise that it was the hair making him so unattractive to me these days but you're right, I think that's it. That's a shame. He looks better when he kind of brushes it forward but I guess there's not a whole lot he can do.

I know! Though it makes sense, because I feel like he's probably the most talented? Or like, idk, acting seems to come more naturally to him than the others or something.

Right? I can't believe there was ever a time when I didn't find him attractive.

Everyone in Reign is so pretty! Even the boys! I came for Anna, I stayed for the pretty.

Gosh I don't like the goth look on Georgie! But I'm glad she's playing a variety of roles. And she's at Cambridge too! SUCH SMART BABIES :3

How many years has Skandar been at university? It seems like aaaages.

I love Will, but the way he uses his voice when he acts can be so...overdone. He just really sounds like he's acting.

BINBONS. :3 (ikr, he doesn't look any older!)

They really are, haha! I'm trying to figure out if I'll keep watching if Lola does get killed off - at first I thought I wouldn't bother, but now idk, because I feel like I've been sucked in now and I'm like, invested in the other storylines. And I do like Toby and Caitlin a lot.

Haha! There were some parts of the movie where it kind of suited her but that second still was a bit over the top. There's an interview, I can't remember if it's one of the ones I linked or not, where they ask her about the costumes and she gushes so much and says she got to keep a lot of the clothes, so I guess she liked it!! And yeah omg AREN'T THEY ALL SO SMART? ...Except Will, who didn't even go to university. (Not that I can talk.) But I feel so weirdly proud of them!

Four! I'd kinda forgotten he was still there because most courses are only three years, right? But now I remember that during the Dawn Treader promotion he talked about how he was going to take a four year break for university. I wonder what'll happen when he's finished, because that's going to be pretty soon now...

I know. :( I feel bad saying it because he's obviously really passionate about becoming an actor, but it doesn't seem to come very naturally to him. There were definitely some bits in Narnia where he was good but I think he's probably the weakest of all of them. But maybe he'll get better with more practice??

I will. I'm invested. I like Caitlin, Toby, Adelaide and Bash (idk his name but he puts on an accent for the show and I don't like his normal voice nearly so much) and I like Greer too, so.

A friend of mine moved to the UK and is doing her A levels in the hope of getting in to Cambridge. The lure is strong.

Way back when, didn't Skandar say he wanted to be a doctor? I wonder what his plans are now. I took 4 and a half years to do a degree that is 3 years full time and in the end it's worked out because I think I'm in the right course now, and if I'd done it in the 3 years I'm not sure it would have worked out like this. It took me a while to realise I didn't want to be a psychologist.

He's the least naturalistic for sure, and unfortunately for Wills that's de rigueur now. If you put him back in to old movies from the 40s or something he'd probably fit in. This reminds me of something I read about Nic Cage - is he an awful ham of an actor or is he just pioneering an acting style that we're unfamiliar with? WHO KNOWS.

How apt that he was in Dorian Gray.

I can't remember if I've asked you this but have you seen Pacific Rim?

Oh my god, why does Livejournal look all weird all of a sudden. :/

Yeah, I'd definitely give it a go and see if it can still hold my interest. It probably would be able to! And to be honest, Lola dying would kind of make sense in terms of the plot, so I'd sort of be okay with it - I mean, I still wouldn't LIKE it because I feel like there's still potential there, but at least it wouldn't seem like they were just killing her off for the hell of it? That would be more frustrating.

You know, I think he did? I was rereading some of my old fic recently to get me back into the mood, and there were a couple where I mentioned him wanting to be a doctor and I was wondering whether that was some headcanon I'd just randomly come up with or something he actually said. I do seem to remember it being discussed though. Yeah, I'd like to know what his plans are now, because like you say, that kind of thing can change. His official website last posted some news in February, but amusingly, it's just about his cats. Aww. (http://www.skandar-keynes.com/news.php)

Hahaha, I know what you mean! I actually feel like, for some reason, he'd probably do better in British things? Maybe just because he's SO ENGLISH, but I just feel like since he already kind of sticks out as a weak actor, he's going to stick out even more in American projects. Idk.

Lol ikr. I always think that.

I think you have asked me that! Haha. I haven't, I just don't really have any interest I'm afraid. :/ But it's one of those things that loads of people like so I guess maybe I should give it a try someday, idk.

Oh! It looks...cleaner? I like it. Looks like the navigation's different but actually I never use that so it doesn't bother me. I just go to my flist etc via bookmark.

If I were the type of person who made gifsets, I'd use pregnant Lola as a stand in for AU!pregnant Susan. I reckon the clothes style's close enough.

I think from very early on he said he didn't see acting as a career. Hahaha "dragging undercarriage" :P

idk either. Maybe he should be on Neighbours or something.

It's a very silly film in a lot of ways but I think it has a nice message of cooperation. It also has a hot father-son team who have a fractious relationship but in order to pilot the robot they have to literally mind meld. They have an angsty backstory and basically it hit all my buttons.

What about Frozen?

Also I'm so excite for X-Men :D And I'm loving the continued strength of the McFassy bromance, with the addition of Hugh. They've been so fun in interviews. The three of them were on Graham Norton and I was laughing the whole time. I still love James as much as ever. I still have that poster of him from way back when - 06 or 07, I'm not sure. But I have been looking at the same picture of his face for at least 6 years. Still love it. :P

I didn't mind it too much until I realised it'd messed with some of the HTML on a couple of my older entries, but it turns out you can choose to go back to the old version if you want to, so I did. I'm not very good with change...

Yeah, I've seen a few posts on Tumblr with people imagining Lola as Susan and it totally works.

Uh huh. It's a shame but obviously the most important thing is for him to be doing what he wants to do. I hope he doesn't just vanish from the public eye entirely, but who knows.

Haha! Actually that Royals thing is English so it'll be interesting to see how he is in that. I feel like it's a more fitting role for him but idk.

I remember you talking about it before! I guess it just doesn't appeal for some reason. It's actually the same with Frozen, which is driving my sister crazy because she really wants me to watch it. She says there's a cute reindeer, so that might sway me. XD Aaand again with X-Men...I did actually watch First Class but I just wasn't that bothered about it. :( I swear there are so many things like that. It's annoying, because the fandoms seem fun and everything but I just can't get into it. :/

Btw, I meant to say - thank you so much for leaving kudos on some of those old fics I uploaded on AO3! ♥

Oh my gosh, you really should watch Frozen. It's the MOST ADORABLE THING EVER <3

I knooow. I think part of the problem is that it was EVERYWHERE when it came out and I got really sick of seeing it on Tumblr all the time, so it's like I got bored of it before even seeing it? Anna thinks I'm being all hipster when I say that, like I don't want to see it because it's ~popular, but that's not what I mean. I just got like over-exposed to it or something.

AND LOVING DISNEY FILMS IS ALWAYS ACCEPTABLE NO MATTER YOUR AGE OR GENDER. ♥ I actually haven't seen Wreck-it Ralph (though that's another one Anna wants me to watch, I think) or Tangled...I think I lean more towards the Pixar movies really.

'Finally' is right! I'd never have believed when I started it that it would take me 4 years XD

Thank you for the lovely rec! I'm so touched <3

Ooh, talking of things that have taken years to finish! :p I'm 3/4 of the way through betaing chapter 8 of The Night Starts Here. I'm so, so sorry it's taken me so long :( I should be finished soon, though, and I'm really loving it :3

Obviously, the fact that I've spent the last few weeks reading explicit Anna/Skandar/Will threesomes has meant that I've found it pretty impossible to read this post without imagining them getting hot and heavy with each other XD

(As I'm writing this, there's a massive thunder storm outside. It's been so hot and humid today, I'm not surprised, but it's kind of scary!)

I love this post! SO many feelings and so many good memories and it's just so lovely to see them all grown up and being all cute and hilarious and stuff. And oh my gosh, Georgie and Will sound so lovely and intelligent and mature. In that interview with Georgie it's kind of disconcerting because she looks so young (like, if she hadn't said she was 16, I'd have said she was a fair bit younger) but she sounds so incredibly grown up and just really comfortable and charming.
And Will P is just really cool and nice, I think. I remember him being utterly charming and hilarious when they were doing the publicity for Dawn Treader. But eep, how is he 20 already? It does make him being Eustace in The Silver Chair somewhat problematic but I really hope that they make it very soon, and that they cast him in the role because he was so, so good in Dawn Treader.
To answer your question, no more than a few months pass between Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair. I'd have to check, but I think Dawn Treader takes place takes place in the summer holidays and The Silver Chair takes place in the September of the same years. And Eustace is more or less Lucy's age, and she's no more than 9 or 10 or something in it? (Again, I'd have to have a dig through the books and my notes and stuff and I'm all comfy on the sofa XD)
Which is all to say, there was already a huge age discrepancy by the time they made Prince Caspian. That was supposed to be less than a year after LWW and Georgie especially already looked a lot older. I dunno if Will P is just going to be too old for it to be doable when and if they finally do make The Silver Chair, and that would be such a shame. He's basically Eustace for me now, it would be such a shame if they had to cast someone else.

I just hope they do make it though. Keeping my fingers crossed for it. And The Magician's Nephew. And one day I want to see a film of The Horse and His Boy. It'll be incredibly hard to make without it being panned for being horribly racist and all, but if they do manage it I'd be so pleased. It's always been my favourite :)

Ben Barnes is still ridiculously attractive, though he looks a whole lot better when he's not being directed by some photographer to go for the whole super-sexy look.

This comment is soooo long, but there's so much to talk about here.
Basically, awesome fabulous post is awesome and fabulous.
Thank you for posting it. It's brought back soooo many feelings.

And you know that I'm more than happy to be dragged back into Narnia fandom1

I hope you're well. I shall write properly as soon as possible.

You're welcome. :) 4 years is a long time!! But I think you should just feel proud that you actually stuck with it for that long. And I was just thinking, I started The Night Starts Here in 2007, and I'm still working on it 7 years later. Which is ridiculous. Obviously I've had huge breaks in between though, while you were keeping yours going quite consistently. I'm glad you're enjoying the new part, btw. I'm quite nervous about it so that's good to hear, and I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts soon. :) Now that some more time has passed, there are a few bits I'm unsure about and might fiddle with again, so maybe we can talk about that when you're finished!

Haha, that is not a bad thing! And lol, my sister was just telling me about the thunderstorm, it sounds like it was pretty dramatic. We had it over here but it only lasted about 5 minutes so that wasn't very exciting.

I'm so glad you like the post. ♥ It's crazy how grown up Georgie and Will P. are now! And haha, in those interviews with Georgie, she's actually 18! She was 16 when she filmed the movie - I don't know if that's what you meant? But I'm pretty sure the interviews happened when the movie came out which was about a month ago. And she's turning 19 this July!! It's crazy. I loved listening to those interviews because I'd been listening to the LWW and PC commentaries and there's definitely a difference in the way she talks now, but at the same time it's so clearly the same old Georgie. She does sound mature but still not like...media-trained, and I like that. She seems so genuine.

Will P.'s speech was just the sweetest thing. The bit about Finding Nemo! And yeah I really hope that if they do make Silver Chair, he can still be Eustace...I'd forgotten that there wasn't supposed to be such a long gap between LWW and PC, so I sort of feel like if they made that work, they could manage this too? I feel like it'd be less jarring than if they used a totally different actor, but I don't know if everybody would feel that way. He was so perfect though! And thank you for your book-knowledge, I was hoping you would know! I'd love for them to make The Magician's Nephew too, that's the only other one I've read I think? And it would be easy in some ways because the only actor who'd need to come back is Tilda, and the fact that she's older now isn't as obvious as it is with the kids. She can definitely look much younger than she is, anyway. I haven't read The Horse and His Boy (I might have started it, I can't remember?) but I have heard about the race issues so I'm not sure how they'd get around that.

I know what you mean! I still think he looks good, but there are a lot of photoshoots he does that I can't help finding funny even though they're obviously supposed to be sexy?? I think it's just because he's such a dork in real life that it's hard to take it seriously.

My comment is super long too!! I'm so happy to be talking about this stuff though, I'm glad you are too. ♥

I saw the We're the Millers DVD when I was buying groceries and wouldn't have looked twice if it hadn't had Will Poulter on the front, but I just watched the trailer and it looks kinda fun. And it has Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation in it, who's hilarious.
I actually haven't seen any of the Narnia cast in anything else yet (except Ben in Dorian Grey, which I loved). It makes me sad and I really have to seek them out. I just love them all and it'll be so nice to catch up with what they're doing now. I haven't even seen Reign yet :(

I don't understand Skandar's attitude to Edmund. Is it because he's embarrassed by the films, or his acting? Or is it a weight round his neck? I dunno. It's odd.
As far as Edmund being kind of bad for much of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, that just made him a more fully rounded person later on, I think. I have especial soft spots for both Edmund and Eustace because they started out so horrible :)

Don't be nervous about Chapter 8. It flows on from the other parts perfectly. I love it <3
(I'll be able to get my comments and whatnot to you very soon, I hope :)).

Oh I don't think I knew it had Nick Offerman in it! That is another good reason to see it. In general it looks like the kind of movie that I might find silly and get secondhand embarrassment from, but I'll probably give it a go anyway.

You know, I haven't seen them in much either. Compiling this post made me realise I hadn't really been keeping up with their careers before. Probably a lot of the stuff isn't really worth watching but I do want to see more than what I have already. And I definitely recommend Reign, as you know! And Perfect Sisters if you can get hold of it.

I don't know. It's probably not like a big deal, it might just be that he's tired of being recognised in general? Like, maybe it's not specifically about Narnia. I can imagine that if you were just trying to focus on university and people kept staring at you and recognising you and asking questions about a project you were trying to move on from, it'd get quite tiring. I doubt he actually regrets being involved in the movies, I suspect it's more to do with being in the public eye. I seem to remember him saying in an interview once that he didn't like that aspect of acting. And yeah Edmund is definitely my favourite character because he's so complex!

♥ Thanks again for your thoughts! They were really helpful. I've fiddled around with a few bits now. I also realised that my timeline was way off and I'd written that chapter taking place a year later than it should've done, so I had to fix that...it's so complicated. Because of the existing chapters, I'm kind of bound to a specific timeline now in which Dawn Treader starts filming practically a whole year before it did in real life, only a few months after Prince Caspian premiered?? Which is annoying, but I guess we can just pretend that everyone was incredibly organised in this universe and the dates didn't keep getting pushed back...

I honestly didn't know what most of the cast had been up to besides Anna (OMG Reign! I am shamelessly addicted to it, haha. It helps that everyone is so beautiful), so this post was really helpful and really awesome.

I am really intrigued by what Georgie's been up to. ALSO I HAD NO IDEA SHE WAS IN UNIVERSITY ALREADY. I FEEL SO OLD. And i am very tempted to watch Perfect Sisters, even though it looks kind of ridiculous.

Also I'm really not surprised at Skandar's reaction to being recognized and his attempt to distance himself from Narnia to a certain degree, even though it makes me sad. He always seemed to dislike the publicity aspect of the Narnia movies, and was only ever enthusiastic in interviews because he got to spend time with everyone. BUT I'M STILL SAD. I really hope he'll go back to acting at some point, though I don't know if you saw the Business Insider interview with him about how he's looking into internships... :\

And it weirds me out that Ben looks exactly the same. ALSO WILL P IS SO TALL NOW WTF.

I'm so glad! It's really nice to get comments from people who are still emotionally invested, haha. ♥

REIGN IS SO ADDICTIVE. I think I'd probably keep watching even if Lola's character was killed off, because I'm hooked now. I can't wait for the second season. And yes everyone is so pretty!!

Oh my god I know right? Georgie being in university makes me feel SO old. She's turning NINETEEN next month! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN. You should totally give Perfect Sisters a try - like, it is a bad movie, I can't lie about that, but I didn't really mind because of Georgie? She definitely makes it worth it. She's amazing.

Yeah, I guess that's true - looking back on the promotion for Dawn Treader you could kind of tell that his heart wasn't in it. I do think that actually being a part of the movies was a great experience for him though and it's possible he'll want to experience something like that again sometime. I did read that interview. :( It doesn't sound like he's ruling acting out entirely, at least? And it makes sense that after four years of studying he's going to want something to come of that!

Hahaha me too. I don't understand. And omg I know! Google tells me he's like 6'2", it's crazy.
