Georgie Henley landed her first acting role at age 8–Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Since then, she has continued to act, and recently reunited with the Narnia cast in Prop Culture on Disney+.
The 24-year-old actress appeared on Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast and offered a fresh perspective on the Narnia movies, explained the role the books have played in her life, compared directors Andrew Adamson and Michael Apted, and addressed Netflix’s upcoming reboot. She also revealed her favorite Narnia book.

This was such a great conversation. Thanks to Georgie and Glumpuddle for this!
I’m in love… again.
Georgie has always been wonderful, so witty and kind.
She grew into a really decent person.
Great to hear her voice again on NarniaWeb!
GlumPuddle must have been grinning from ear to ear the whole talk. 🙂
This podcast makes me wanna talk to her now
Very neat to have her on the show! I thought it was really cool that she thinks you shouldn’t follow a celebrity (or people in general) on social media if doing so would make you extremely envious and wishing you had their life, because Lucy in VDT movie is taught a similar lesson of being content with one’s own life:)
This was a really good interview. Georgie is such a fine actress and it’s a pleasure to hear her voice. Hopefully, she will be able to be involved with Narnia in some way again in the near future. My favorite film of the three was The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and it was mostly because I liked Georgie’s acting the best. What a privilege it was to hear this interview! Thank you Georgie and Glumpuddle! 🙂
This was such a good interview. She’s so pure and really embodies Lucy to the max. Hope she gets to return in the Netflix productions
Still wish all the Narnia books could been adapted into films. Like every two years. Because watching Georgie grow up from 8 years old in LWW, to 10 years old in PC, to 12 years old in VDT – would have been great. But watching her return at the age of 16 and 20, respectively, for HHB and LB, would have been so moving.
Thank you so much, Georgie and Glumpuddle! Great interview!
By the way, my favorite Narnia book is VDT too, tied with HHB.
Georgie was so central in making those 3 Narnia films okay to excellent. Thank you Georgie and thanks NarniaWeb!
I’d love it if they brought back Georgie, Anna, and William to play an older Lucy, Susan and Peter! Even if they had to wear wigs or dye hair to match the younger actors, that’d be a great opportunity. Even if it is a reboot, they can’t completely ignore that the previous films exist. Every reboot is conscious of its predecessor, even if they don’t want to be.
What about Skandar (or however it’s spelled)? He was amazing as Edmund.
Same! Well, maybe she can make a cameo in LWW (if Netflix does a remake of that movie) as her older self.
Can someone write this podcast?? My english is very bad and i dont understand that
Can I also say what a talented interviewer- totally put her at ease and made the whole interview super conversational. Outstanding.
Agreed, sadly he isn’t acting anymore, but maybe he could be convinced!
Working on it!
thanks, i really wanted to see this interview, but i don’t know english either
I suspect many other fans have the same favourite book and movie:
Book – Dawn Treader
Movie – LWW.
My reasons for saying that: I feel like I have heard many fans say that Dawn Treader is their favourite book. I wouldn’t say that Walden’s Dawn Treader movie is their favourite because of the changes they made. And since Walden’s LWW is so close to the book (closest out of the movies), they might hold that as their favourite film.
This is my favorite episode!
Yay! Loved this!!
Only just caught up with this. Fantastic interview!!! Well done and thank you to Georgie, and great interviewing by Glumpuddle. Georgie’s advice about social media was especially refreshing and wise. I loved her story about reading the Narnia books in bed with her dad — I did exactly the same thing with my mum when I was about the same age!! Happy memories.
Many thanks again — I love being part of this awesome NarniaWeb community too! 😀
OH MY GOODNESS! Lucy–err Georgie– was amazing! It was SO nice to hear from her!
I also want to talk to her
She was my favourite character of narnia. She was acting like a pro.
