Pranks on Set

From Ben Barnes, who plays Prince Caspian, not only was new to this troupe, but he also began filming two weeks after the other actors. William Moseley, who plays the oldest boy, Peter, decided that the best way to make Barnes feel at home would be to play a practical joke on him. On Barnes’ first day, Moseley went up to him with a slightly shaken bottle of orange soda, planning to lift the cap while faking a sneeze, thus giving him a slight spritz. Alas, Moseley inadvertently squeezed the bottle, and its entire contents shot out, spraying Barnes. “Thirty people screamed,” Moseley recalls. “Poor Ben looked like he was about to cry.” And what did Moseley do? “Oh, I ran, I ran.”
