Sexy actor Ben Barnes is known for his portrayal of Caspian X in The Chronicles of Narnia films, and for playing the title character in the 2009 adaptation of Dorian Gray. Now, he stars in ‘Seventh Son’ movie, directed by Sergei Bodrov.
After having the release date shifted several times, ‘Seventh Son’ is scheduled to be released in 3-D and IMAX 3D on February 6, 2015 on United States.
‘Seventh Son’ is a 2014 fantasy film based on the novel The Spook’s Apprentice. The story centers on Thomas Ward (actor Ben Barnes), a seventh son of a seventh son, and his adventures as the apprentice of the Spook (Jeff Bridges.)
Young Thomas Ward is learning to fight evil spirits, and his first great challenge comes when the powerful Mother Malkin escapes her confinement while the Spook is away.
No doubt, Thomas Ward rocks. But how about Ben Barnes? What do you know about the actor? He is sincere, imaginative, independent, authentic, and very smart. Today listen to him!
Sincere: You still get these waves of doubt that come over you, for example, when you get a bad review or you accept a part and think, ‘Oh, God, what have I just accepted? I can’t do that.’ I don’t think that’s something that will ever go away in me.
Imaginative: I think escapism is very important, certainly in my life. I love nothing more than escaping into the world of a film or a novel. To be involved in creating that for other people is a privilege.
Independent: No one wants to be with a girl that your mother would pick for you.
Authentic: I don’t believe in that kind of pragmatic career ladder stuff.
And really clever: I often talk with other actors about that time when you’ve just finished a job, because I think you do take on the characteristics of some of the characters you play. Sometimes it can be a great thing and sometimes it’s a bit haunting because you’re not quite sure how to leave it on set. My dad talks about it as being ‘de-personalised.’
