Caspian Loses His Accent for VDT
Mouth Magazine: How did it feel reprising your role as (the now) King Caspian?
Ben Barnes: It was a great experience reprising the role. It’s a different take on the character with a new director and new studio invovled. We decided that Caspian and the Telmarines will no longer have European accents, as they felt CS Lewis is a quintessentially an English writer. The story is my favourite of the seven books and it has a feel of a roving, mythical, adventure tale.
The Telmarine accent in Prince Caspian got a lot of mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. As the accent has now been removed for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, it should be interesting to see how everybody reacts.
Thanks to ‘Cass’, ‘Sir Jack’, and ‘bkey’ for the information!
