Boston Globe Scan

Hi everyone! Things are a bit quiet with Ben right now but I did upload 1 new scan from the July 3rd issue of the ‘Boston Globe’ newspaper today, thanks to Lisa! The article includes a new photo of Ben from the set of ‘Valediction‘ and mentions that filming of the movie officially wrapped last week.

Susie Brooks-Smith, producer of the locally shot film “Valediction,’’ said she’ll be sad to leave Boston. She’s been here for weeks to shoot the thriller, which stars Ben Barnes (a.k.a. Prince Caspian), Sarah Roemer, and hometown girl Eliza Dushku. “We’ve been stuffing our face with your fabulous seafood,’’ said Brooks-Smith, who celebrated the last day of the shoot yesterday by eating lobster with Barnes and the “Valediction’’ crew on the Summer Street set. The group was expected to continue the party at the Westin last night.

Brooks-Smith told us she chose our fair city for the filming of “Valediction’’ over Hungary, which also offers a tax credit for filmmakers. “I just wanted a contemporary city that you could imagine Ben and Sarah living in,’’ she said, promising us, “You’ll like the way you look.’’

If you’re admiring Barnes’s coif in this photo, you can thank the people standing on either side of him. Liz Cecchini, who did hair for “The Proposal’’ and “Fever Pitch,’’ and Stephen Bruno, of Patrice Vinci salon, are responsible for the actor’s deliciously disheveled ’do.

Yeah, I’m sorry guys .. the photo is a bit fuzzy. Newspaper scans never usually come out well. Lisa is going to mail me the article so I can see what I can do with it. Hopefully I can get a clearer version of the photo up in a few days. =) This will have to do for now since the photo never showed up online ..

I’m so sorry guys, I got the clipping from Lisa and the photo looks exactly as it does in the scan above. I also got a second copy of the newspaper to see if that photo would be any clearer and the quality is just as bad in the second paper. So it has nothing to do with who scans it, the newspaper is the problem, they printed up terrible versions of the Ben pic .. I tried .. =(
