Filming starts next week on Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and director Andrew Adamson and producer Mark Johnson talked to the media this morning to discuss the film, the cast and why they chose to film in New Zealand. Here’s a clip on the casting from The New Zealand Herald:
Adamson: “We have not yet cast King Miraz, we’re still in discussions with someone on that. We have officially cast Prince Caspian finally after a very long search… He’s a very talented young British actor named Ben Barnes.
“Ben is a very accomplished young man, he’s been getting a lot of good reviews lately for a play that he has on the West End. He came to us very late in the game and he just blew us away. He’s going to be a great addition to the cast. I think he’ll really fit in well with the other kids.”
