Urm, yeah, dramatically but I think it will affect it for the good. Amazingly, amazingly well. I’m really lucky to be a part of it.
8.What was your best/funniest experience on set?
Probably the time, when I told Skandar that sugar-glass was actually edible, he ate it and it turned out that it was silicone. He didn’t like it very much. Quite a good moment.
9.What do you think of Skandar’s Check the Gate song?
It’s not really Skandar’s Check the Gate song, it’s everyone’s check the gate song and I do like it. I think it’s very funny-cracks me up. He [Skandar] tried to steal it but it’s not his song.
10.Have you been offered lots of roles since the release of Narnia?
No actually, not that many. Urm I auditioned for a few things but I haven’t really been offered anything. Well, one part.

Good question. Urm dunno really. I quite like the Bravery. Urm I dunno, there are so many bands I like it’s crazy. I like a bit of the Rolling Stones sometimes. Lots of different types.
12.Do you ever visit any of your fansites?
Sometimes actually, when I want to say thank you to them for doing such an amazing job of keeping up with it, yeah I do then.
13.Who do you think would win in a fight between you and Skandar?
OMG oo that’s a difficult question. Honestly? Or do I have to like lie? Honestly, I could probably beat Skandar with my arms behind my back, blindfolded and with both my feet tied together.
14.What other works of C.S Lewis have you read apart from Narnia?
I’ve read pretty much all of them.
15.If you could play any character from a film, who would it be?

16.What’s your favourite film?
I quite like a film called Apocalypse Now and another film called Leon.
17.Do you have any pets?
Yeah, I have a cat and two goldfish. One’s called Campden [edit:Louise: I THINK thats what he said but I couldn't hear very well.] and one’s called Stroud which are the areas we got them from. Very inventive.

26.What’s your favourite scene in LWW?
The battle definitely. [to do and to watch]
27.What’s your weirdest fan experience so far?
I dunno, none of it’s really been that weird. I just feel really lucky that people are really nice to me and stuff about it. People do [run around yelling Narnia] which can get quite annoying. Well anyway it’s fun when they run around shouting “Narnia, Narnia” – that’s fine. When they start shouting “Narnia sucks” and derogatory towards Narnia, that’s when I do get upset.
28.Do you sing in the shower?
Yeah, always singing. Any type of water on me, I’m always singing.
29.Do you blow dry your hair or air dry it?
No neither. Just get a towel and whack it on. I should do [use a hairdryer] shouldn’t I? Or that’s probably a bit pouffy if I did that. They’ll just have to accept me for who I am.

One hand handstands is my other good one. I can do all sorts of stuff and I can do Irish dancing when I get going.
34.How did you feel about your haircut in the last film and would you trust Adamson near it again?
NO! No I would never trust that guy near my hair ever again! It will never happen again. I literally…the first thing in the contract, I’m going to have a choice over my hair!

36.What’s with the leather jacket you always wear?
My sister got it for me, it’s really comfortable and I think it’s cool.
37.Have you heard of the Willianites?
No. What is that? [I go into lengthy discussion of the Willianites and their origins and the autograph he gave to Izzy and Will asks me if I’m a Skandar or Will fan and insults Skandar BADLY – evil Will!]
38.Do you like 70s music and if so which song?
Urm Cat Stevens, Simon and Garfunkal, Bob Dylan, Supertramp, I like a bit of that. I do like 70s music, I think it’s cool.

Yeah Germany actually. I’d just like to see it and explore the country.
41.Were you really showing off your electric razor in the make-up tent during filming?
I don’t have an electric razor. Skandar lied. See I told you he was gay.[refers back to previous insult]

43.Do you think Skandar has changed at all?
Yeah, he’s become gay.
44.Is there any sort of role you would refuse to play?
Probably not really. If it was a good script and I liked it, why not?
45.Have you ever Googled yourself?
Yeah actually, just to try and get to those fans, those fansites. That’s probably why I do Google myself to get the fansites up. But I did see what people were saying about me and I was terrified.
46.What’s your general opinion on fangirls?
I like it, I think it’s really nice. I feel kinda honoured actually. Though I don’t know why anyone would want to be a fan of mine but it’s very nice of them and I do appreciate it very much.
47.Do you have any romantic interest in Anna Popplewell?
Uh no we’re just sisters I’m afraid, brother and sister, siblings.

Oh totally differently. Yeah, they really hated me, they were really horrible to me, yeah they basically just turned on me. They were fine, they were actually really nice.

I’m afraid I’m not allowed to answer that question, I’m under contract from Mickey Mouse. Yes that’s what he said.
59.What’s your favourite food?
Don’t really have a favourite food. I quite like cereal, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are my favourite I think.
60.What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
Hundreds of things I done, millions in fact. There was this really nice woman on the film but she’s quite large and I just said to her "Ahh you’re just like a great big fat cuddly bear" and hugged her. That was quite embarrassing. It wasn’t very good of me. I don’t think she actually knew or paid attention so just turned a blind eye.
61.Have you ever broken any bones?
No, touch wood.
62.What was the last film you saw?
I was watching a bit of Cruel Intentions last night, a bit of Brokeback Mountain last night.

I don’t feel like a heart-throb. I don’t really know how to get used to it. It’s all quite bizarre.

65.Describe yourself in 3 word.
Charismatic, disorganised, sort of like light hearted, I just take things easily. Easy going.
66. Did you really have a crush on the producer’s niece?
I’m sorry I’m not allowed to answer that question either. Who told you that? Skandar? Yes it was, he’s a little rat. I hate that kid.
67.Do you read and answer ALL of your fan mail or just some of it?
I try to answer all of it but it’s really difficult, it takes me for ever. Cause as you probably know I’ve got exams coming up soon.

Oh and have as much fun as you can in Art with paint. That’s my bit of advice. Just don’t go spreading it on other people’s work. That never really works out too well. It’s fun to chuck it on each other.
