Cinema Confidential has posted an interview with Anna Popplewell who plays Susan in the upcoming The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. In the interview she talks about acting with Tilda Swinton and her favorite scene in the movie.

CINEMA CONFIDENTIAL: Were there any scenes you particularly loved shooting?
ANNA: One of my favorite scenes is when we get to the beaver’s dam, which is one of the very few scenes where we had to laugh. There was a lot of running away and a lot of being scared; a lot of highly emotional scenes, so that was one of the few scenes where Andrew had to try and make us laugh. That was fun. Probably the most difficult scene was the death one, but it was also really rewarding when we got that.

CINEMA CONFIDENTIAL: I saw some pictures of Tilda Swinton as Jadis the White Witch, and she looked terrifying…
ANNA: Tilda’s amazing. She’s very, very warm as a person so it’s amazing to see her being transformed into someone so cold. I think I only have one scene with her, when she comes to Aslan’s camp. But on set when we were doing the shots she scared me. I was really scared of her. (Laughs). But as a person she’s really nice and it was really wonderful to work with her.
