1You start wondering if they could have used CG and you have to wonder whether they'll need actors anymore! Dangerous ground!
2Each of the characters in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) has their own journey and Susan's no different. Like Peter, she feels the obligation of looking after her younger brother and sister and it's something that has made her grow up too fast - being saddled with all that responsibility. When she comes to Narnia, she thinks she's too grown up to believe in it. But, through this adventure, she becomes more open to the idea of being in this magical land. By the end, it's changed her for the better and she becomes unafraid of being a child. It's a real journey for her. (Narnia production notes)
3It's a laid-back set, and everyone's very friendly. Andrew is so relaxed that it makes everyone else relaxed. - On the set of the Chronicles of Narnia
4"It's gone more quickly than I expected; the time has really flown past. It's a bit like a long and lovely dream, and now I'm ready to wake up." (on the experience of filming the Chronicles of Narnia)
5"Skandar has these eyes that are really expressive and quite penetrating" (on her first impression of costar Skandar Keynes).
6"I can relate to Susan. She thinks in terms of practicality. There are certain areas where we're very similar and certain areas where we're not. I feel very defensive of her. If anyone accuses Susan of being an outright cynic, I'll say, 'No, she's not. There's a perfectly logical explanation for it all. Don't talk about her like that!'" (on her character, Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia)
