EntertainmentWise.com Interview

In an exclusive interview, Dorian Gray star Ben Barnes reveals what drew him to the title role of the London gent-about-town who sells his soul for eternal youth, discusses the parallels with today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, and why his shirtless scenes are vital to the storyline!

Edit: I’ve uploaded 107 screencaps from the interview to the gallery! View them here.

great clip! the Dorian Gray marketing is already in full swing. still waiting for a US release date though. i’m hoping it would get great reviews in the UK and Canada so that it gets picked up in the US and elsewhere.

on a side note, i’m wondering why they lightened his hair for VDT, he looks best with dark hair, why change it? an attempt to make King Caspian a blonde? lol!

surprised about the trimmed beard, but it looks ok and Ben needs it anyway. they have to make it appear that Caspian has gotten older while the kids havent aged, and for Ben who looks perennially younger than his years, he needs all the help he can get to appear older.

Thats the way his hair looks when the he is in the sunlight. Looks good doesn’t it. I am really liking the beard on him.

maybe his hair naturally lightens when its in the sun since he’s out there a lot for shooting….or it could just be the sun shining on his hair.

Okay, I like the new look for Caspian, but don’t you think he’s looking a bit much like Jesus? I mean, REALLY??? Be honest!

@ Mandi: When his hair was longer, he definitely looked like Jesus. Now that he got a haircut, not as much.

@Kell and @icebunny, no, they lightened his hair. there are a few photos around of him indoors and his hair is still as light as that. comparatively there are lots of earlier photos and videos of Ben outdoors in the strong sun and his hair still stayed as dark as we remembered it.

they lightened his hair for VDT, must be a creative decision of portraying an older, more regal King Caspian. because i gotta admit, Ben does look older. the more hair he has on his face and head the older he seems. when he has his hair short and is clean shaven, then he could pass for a teenager. lol!

His hair was not lightened for the movie. He’s sitting in the sun. That type of thing happens to everyone and there are pictures from other events and photo shoots where his hair appears lighter but really isn’t. The beard looks great on him too. My sister is a hairdresser and watched the clip and even she agrees.

I’ve only seen one picture of filming of VoDT on this site (which was ‘identify the people in the boat’). None on any others. Again, his hair looks lighter due to being in the sun, but then so does everyone else’s. Considering that he grew his hair out so they wouldn’t do extentions again, I don’t see him allowing them to do chemical processes on his hair.

Great clip though. Can’t wait to see the movie.
