    Congratulations to Will!

    well done Will but your WAY too old now.

  • Paul says:

    To be honest, the Narnia films have made everyone roughly 5 years older at any given point. Will Poulter can pass for 18 easily and can use a little effect to make him a little younger. Nobody wants recasting, or the majority don’t, so they shouldn’t do it. If they want the franchise to kick off and continue, they should pay attention to the fans. Charlize Theron should definitely be the green witch/Lady of The Green Kirtle.

    Eustace could not have been portrayed any better! Congrats, Will!

  • Yerdif says:

    I really hope Will Poulter can return as Eustace, but even if he doesn’t for Silver Chair, maybe he could return for Last Battle, if Lord willing, that movie gets made? What do you think?

    • Shift says:

      That doesn’t make any sense. The problem with Poulter is that he’s to old to play Eustace in the silver chair, never mind the last battle.

      • Yerdif says:

        In the Last Battle, Eustace and Jill are six-seven years older than in the Silver Chair, so maybe he could.

      • Impending Doom says:

        But that would look completely ridiculous! Having one actor for VDT, another for SC, and then having the original actor come back for LB. It wouldn’t do

      • Zee says:

        Impending – correct – the continuity would be closer with Poulter, despite change in age, than to completely recast him. And as stated below, he’s an actor – he can act younger, and be made up to look younger as well without any issue.

    • O' Really says:

      Has anyone seen Will lately? He’s grown like a weed, they’re most definitely not putting him in the film. Yes, he did a great job, but accept it, it can’t work with Will playing Eustace.

  • Swanwhite7 says:

    I am glad Will got this award! However, I think that he is waaaaay to old to play eustace in the silver chair.

  • GlimGlum says:

    Congratulations, Will. :)

  • Impending Doom says:

    And a most deserved award too! Congratulations!

  • Zee says:

    Well, he already looked older than 9 in VDT – like a young teenager. Is age a central them of the Silver Chair?

    And just because he’s 21 (or older when the movie is filmed), doesn’t mean Eustace has to be portrayed as that old…or any age at all in the script of the film. He can be made to look younger (though not 9, obviously), and of course, act younger – he is an actor, after all.

    Elijah Wood reprised a role he was playing (Frodo) as a teenager now in this 30s without any problem.

    • Anna's Sister says:

      Great point about Elijah Wood! Anyway, it’s not like we haven’t seen a lot of characters cast way older than they are supposed to be. Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian for example. I just don’t want to let Will go. He was so amazing and I want to see more of him!

  • Eustace says:

    Hurrah! I voted for him.
