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”.
