Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

English actor Ben Barnes landed in hot water when he abruptly departed a London stage production of "The History Boys" in 2007 to take a role in a Disney film shooting in New Zealand. The decision may have not won him any accolades among the theater community, but it did wonders for his career - the role was that of Prince Caspian, the titular hero of the 2008 sequel to "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005), and the blizzard of publicity that preceded its early summer released virtually papered the globe with pictures of his face. The exposure catapulted the actor into worldwide attention, and generated more work in major motion pictures, including the third "Narnia" feature and an opportunity to romance Jessica Biel in a big-screen version of Noel Coward's "Easy Virtue" (2009).
