To celebrate the release of Dorian Gray, we’re giving 2 lucky readers the chance to win a money can’t buy goody bag that contains an exclusive Dorian Gray T-Shirt, a copy of the book and a poster signed by Ben Barnes!
Young Dorian arrives fresh on the London social scene and is taken under the wing of Lord Henry Wotton (Colin Firth of MAMMA MIA) who introduces him to the seedy pleasures of London life. When Dorian sees how incredible he looks in a newly painted picture of himself, he swears to do whatever it takes to look as young and handsome in real life as he does in the picture – forever.
His stunning good looks and charm soon attract the celebrity lifestyle and everything that it brings. Dorian finds himself slipping deeper and deeper into a world of sin, sex and celebrity, seemingly without any consequences. But as his actions become increasingly evil, for how long can he hide the secret behind his eternal youth?
For more information visit www.orange.co.uk/doriangray.
To be in with your chance of winning simply answer the following question:
Where does Dorian keep the portrait so the world can’t see it?
E-mail your name and answer to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck everyone! =D
(This contest is open to everyone and winners will be chosen at random on September 14th, 2009.)
Hi everyone! As most of you may have noticed, Ben Barnes Fan was hacked again last weekend. Thanks to Tran and the countless hours she put into getting the site cleaned up this week, we are now back up and running! We are aware that some parts of the site look a bit funny right now (the gallery in particular) but don’t worry, everything will be back to normal within the next few days!
First, I want to apologize for the issues with the site recently. A week ago the site was hacked and it took a few days to resolve the problem and clean up the site but everything seems to be running fine now. Thanks Tran and Ivonne! If anyone is still having issues with the site, please let us know.
Onto the updates! It’s official, Ben has been nominated for a 2009 MTV Movie Award for his performance as Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian! The category is ‘Breakthrough Male Performance‘. To vote for Ben, click here. Voting ends on May 27th!
The 2009 MTV Movie Awards will air live on Sunday, May 31st at 9 PM (Eastern) on MTV.
I’ve also uploaded some new/old photos to the gallery recently:

So when I saw the new photoshoot Ivonne uploaded, I was like “Holy crap, I need to make a new layout with these!” and so I did! I hope everyone likes the new look, and I should mention, the layout looks even more funky (in a good sense) if you view it through FireFox! Enjoy and comments are more than welcome.
Tran here updating BBF with the first new layout for 2009! I hope everyone likes the new look, and if you found any errors, please feel free to contact me and let me know!
Also wanted to thank the visitors and contributors of 2008! Cheers for another year of merry moments.
