    1. Where oh where is Georgie Henley news? You know, "The Class Project"? No one's mentioned this on NarniaWeb!

    2. I'm doing a Christmas project for Skandar and Georgie Central is doing one for Georgie.

    Cool! 🙂 I love Karl Urban and Ben Barnes. I hope the movie is good…haha

    Ben finally got his 'big gun and fast car' movie that he's wanted for so long. 🙂

    Good to see Ben's doing so well, but I too have to wonder why only he's getting news reports. Anna and Georgie have both finished shooting separate films, and rumor is that Anna is to be attached to another project soon.

    Hmmm. Hopefully a Pg or PG-13 movie this time?
    (Yay for Ben's new gig!)

    Wow, Ben's a busy man. I'm glad to see both him and McAvoy doing so well and have moved on to stardom. I'm sure that Georgie will follow them eventually. Pity Skandar threw his acting career out the window, I have a feeling he could've gone far.

    im so happy for ben! i just hope his weak legs (coz that's what he said in one interview that he has weak legs) wont be a problem. the variations in the roles he's taking is very impressive. we, your fans, will all be waiting. 🙂

    oh my gosh Karl Urban and Ben Barnes in the same movie?!?!?! heck yes 😀

  11. narnian resident says:

    oh my gosh i just looked at the link they have here and saw that Garrett Hedlund is also attached to the project!!! wow, Karl and Ben and Garrett all in the same movie! a few of my favorite male actors 😀

    Skandar hasn't "thrown his acting career out the window." He's simply taking a hiatus to finish his degree at Cambridge. Anna did the same thing while at Oxford. Skandar doesn't know what he'll do after Cambridge, but if he continues with movies/entertainment, I think it will be either acting or something behind the scenes (directing, producing, etc).

  13. S & G says:

    Weak legs? Which interview did Ben say that in? That's terrible! 🙁

    Question: Who is Karl Urban???

  14. Hiking Peter says:

    Happy Halloween 🙂

  15. Freya says:

    And by the time he's finished with that, nobody except us narniatics here will remember who he is. It's not like taking a break from a career in teaching or whatever. His name was hot after "Voyage", some said he could've been the male version of Emma Watson. However, it's a known fact that in this industry, people have short memories. And in an interview I heard with him just after the movie came out, he did not sound very interested at all. That being said, an education is also very important of course, and all luck to him. And if he decide to pursue an acting career after all, I hope he proves me wrong.

  16. Freya says:

    Karl Urban played the part of Eomer in "The Lord of the Rings" movies.

  17. WarriorOfNarnia says:

    Hmmm, OF course, some sort of connection to Lord of the Rings is included!

    Go Ben!
