I think Eustace, Edmund and Lucy. I think they just fleshed out the characters more but still faithful to the book.

I'm going to say Eustace because i just loved him! He was so fresh and funny and I was already a big fan of Will so when I found out he was going to be in VDT I was like :D !!!!!
I think he had a great on screen presence and when he wasn't in a scene it sometimes seemed a bit flat and lifeless!?! I don't know if anyone else thought that?
Caspian was fab as well though and I really can't see anyone else playing King Caspian because Ben Barnes is just perfect, and a great actor in general!

I guess I'd say Lucy in the first two films at least, she was pretty spot on. Edmund and Eustace are close runner's up.

The other three I think are quite different, but only Aslan do I think the difference was negative.

Well, it appears that the general agreement is that Eustace was the best adapted character in VDT. I quite agree, but like a lot of you I think that Edmund & Lucy were amazing too. :)

What exactly about Aslan's portrayal did you think was negative (in VDT or otherwise)?

I voted for Eustace in a similar poll, so I felt as though I owe it to Georgie to vote for Lucy. Will was fantastic as Eustace and they really captured his annoyingness, but Lucy had such a childlike faith. Her faith is the essense of Lucy. I love both of them so it was really hard to chose.
