Empire Posts Video of the Barnes/Apted Interview

Posted August 19, 2010 11:18 am by fantasia_kitty

Empire has uploaded a video of parts of their interview with Ben Barnes and Michael Apted from this past weekend. It only covers a few of the questions asked, so there’s nothing new. But what wasn’t obvious in the written interview is a little kid asks one of the questions and it’s just hysterical.

The video is available here. The full written interview is here.

UPDATE: icarus has pointed out to us that if you click the menu button on the bottom right of the video, you can see two more parts of the interview. Thanks icarus!

    Cool! Only too bads they don’t have the whol interview on film. Except fot that, wow. Good for them. Can’t wait till the movie comes out!!!!

  • icarus says:

    There seems to be at least 3 parts to the video if you click "menu". Will be interesting to see who the "Mark" quotes were from, as Mark Johnson doesn’t seem to be there afterall.

    • Sammie says:

      At about 1:15-1:20 into the clip, I believe Barnes says that Mark Johnson is sitting in the audience and points to him.

  • ramagut says:

    Well, at least that explains why they didn’t film in Mexico! (if this is old news, forgive me, I am of the spoiler-free ones). I thought it was great when Ben tried to answer the child’s question and the child said, no, it didn’t answer the question! 😉

  • Tirian says:

    Ben has a hilarious reaction to this question. I love it when the kid says that he wasn’t satisfied with the answer. Just hilarious….

    • Dr Elwin Ransom says:

      Once upon a time I was annoyed that they had cast Caspian so much older than the book’s character. The wisdom of that decision notwithstanding, I have come to appreciate Ben Barnes — especially because of his familiarity with the books — and this video just provides further reasons!

      • sgk474 says:

        It was obvious that Ben relates to children very well and he came across as kind and open-hearted. Well done Ben!

    • Lady Éowyn says:

      Adorable, and handled so well. I wonder why the kid wasn’t satisfied with that answer. I almost wonder if he was asking if Caspian takes roll on board the ship? Makes me think of the roll call in Muppet Treasure Island.

      • Starlily says:

        Lol! It would be so funny if there was a role call on the Dawn Treader like in Muppet Treasure Island! I can just see Caspian looking freaked out when the Minotaurs step up and roar, "Aye, sir!"

        Of course I don’t actually want to see that in the movie. It would just be funny if there was a spoof. 😉 (I love Muppet Treasure Island 😛 )

  • NarniaNerd says:

    Oh my gosh, that little kid is SO ADORABLE! *rolls on floor laughing*

  • Aslan's Meadow says:

    That was so funny!!!! Ben handled the little kids quesiton very well. I loved his reply, about HIS ship and not liking the "pain", Eustace.
    I laughed and laughed! What a great interview!

  • Knight of the Lion says:

    No mager spoilers in this interveiw (besides the big paper mache rock), but the part when the little kid asks the question is hilarious!

  • narnian resident says:

    how cute! that little kid was so cute and Ben did a lovely job answering him. i just loved that 😀
    i just noticed, hearing Michael Apted’s voice for one of the first times, he sounds just like Ian Mckellen who had played Gandalf in Lord of the Rings. same voice, i swear! and i really like it 🙂
    the drug wars they were talking about in Mexico are terribly true. my brother, who goes to a missionary school down there, was very close to where all that was happening. well, actually, he was in America at that time, and still is (thank goodness!) when it started, so the school’s a bit in danger but thankfully he’s safe. its so terrible though. it makes me want to cry 🙁

  • Lucy says:

    Love that kid!

  • Timo says:

    Hahaha, I like him more because of that.. That was really funny :p

  • Starlily says:

    I love how Ben thinks about it before he says, "and he doesn’t ask Eustace’s name because he’s a PAIN…" LOL! So good.

  • adamie says:

    doesn’t the fact that ben asks if he is in SC proves that he does not go to Aslan’s Country?

    • Fairytalelady says:

      AAAWWW….SO CUTE! SO FUNNY! Yep, I love how he calls Eustace a pain! Haha! I hope they do a good job on the film and don’t spoil it! 🙂 I’m sure they wll do a good job!

  • Mirima Rosetrader says:

    Cool! 🙂 Ben is so funny! 😀 I’m so excited about this movie!!! Only a few more months! 😀 😀

  • DruidDream says:

    too bad they didn’t shot in Mexico.
    But, They are right, Rosarito isn’t really safe at all. Actually, most part of Mexico’s north is dangerous

  • ExtremeFan says:

  • casandra says:

  • Lili_Ramandu says:

    Awwwww! That kid was soooooo cute! Happy Birthday (yesterday) Ben! 😀 And what in the world has happened to his hair? LOL Nice but I prefer it longer. It must be for his play, that is coming up. 😀

  • Waleed Sajjad Khan says:

    ??? How did they even understand the little kid? "Did that answer the question?" "Not really." ROFL 😀

  • Reepicheep says:

    Dear lord, Ben Barnes has had quite the sense of humor lately. There are 115 sleeps left, but I live in Australia so I get to see it a day before all you Americans! Shamefully, I don’t live on the Gold Coast.

  • Not Of This World says:

    That question was so funny!

  • Narnian Meerkat says:

    That was cute. . .:D

  • pselpevensie says:
