Ben recently spoke with Interview Magazine about his latest projects, ‘Seventh Son’ and ‘Sons of Liberty’. Check out the interview below and view the photoshoot in our gallery.
How much did you know about the American Revolution? I grew up in London and I knew very little about it. It’s not something you really learn about in school.
I also knew very little about it. Obviously you hear about these characters; you know about George Washington and Benjamin Franklin and John Hancock—your John Hancock. But if I’m being really honest, I didn’t know they were all alive at the same time. Three of them became president, and several of them are on different dollar bills, and you think, “They can’t all have been working towards the same goals at the same time.”
Buzzfeed.com has posted a Q&A they did with Ben, and they have shared some fun photos along with it. Check out the Q&A below and view the pictures in our gallery.
What’s your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
On my phone it’s a picture of my brother in a boxing match and on my computer it’s a photograph of London turning from day to night.
Ben recently spoke with Metro News (Russia) about his upcoming film, ‘Seventh Son’. Scans have been added to the gallery. Many thanks to Kat for the translation!
I’ve seen Seventh Son, you were just splendid in it!
I think you’re the only person in the world who’s seen this film. I‘m so happy you liked it!
Why did you decide to take part in Seventh Son?
First of all, I galloped through Joseph Delaney’s The Spook’s Apprentice, I really enjoyed it. Secondly – Jeff Bridges! When I realised I’d be playing alongside a legend….Well, how could I refuse? Bridges is a hero of mine! It was my dream to work with him!
Emertainment Monthly spoke with Ben on the red carpet at the ‘By The Gun’ premiere in Boston on December 1st. Check out the interview below:
Ben, you’re best know for playing Prince Caspian in the Chronicles of Narnia film series, as well as playing Dorian Gray in the film Dorian Gray. Both characters are fantastical and hold a level of prestige within their respective worlds. What was it like to play a realistic character, set in the real modern world, coming from nothing in By the Gun?
Ben Barnes: I was definitely, definitely looking for a role more like this, with more sort of grounded, gritty characters. I love the urban type of stories, and this script sort of popped up one day and it was just one of those ones that I read cover to cover. Once I finished, I instantly thought “well, I have to play this guy”.
