I feel like he could create a really dimensional and deep character, both before and after the transformation to King of Narnia.

Now that I think of it, Peter Capaldi would make a fabulous Uncle Andrew.


Oh, man, I’m so torn on these suggestions XD mostly because I don’t know if I could separate either of them from Doctor Who. I like both these actors and I really think Capaldi is very capable of playing Uncle Andrew well.

I wouldn’t mind a Viking slant on the Telmarines. I could see someone like Gerard Butler playing Miraz. And I know she’s young-ish, but I could see Karen Gillan as Prunaprismia. And if for some reason they decide to go with a younger Miraz, Jude Law or Luke Evans could also pull it off.

I think Peter Capaldi is good at playing older men with craggy faces - he is only in his 50s you know! And he does wild crazy people pretty well.

David Tenant as Frank? I think his face is too thin, but probably only because the cabby in Pauline Baynes' illustrations is a bit rounder in the face.

Dream Cast: Sons of Adam...

No idea yet. Apologies.

Still, I’d like the new young actors to be close to the ages that Lewis suggested in his Narnia timeline (when they are first cast).

I hope that they don’t outgrow their roles after 3 or 4 stories like with the movies (even though television has the inverse: the actors might be too young by the time the series ends...). Still, here are my two cents...

Digory (MN): 12-14 years old

Peter (LWW): 13-15 years old

Edmund (LWW): 10-12 years old

Shasta (HHB): 14-16 years old

Caspian (PC): 15-17 years old

[...He’s 13 in the book. I want an older teen actor here so as to be close in age to Peter (Peter is 14 in the book), and also I want him to reprise his role in the next story, rather than being later replaced by an older actor...]

Eustace (VDT): 9-11 years old

Tirian (LB): 20-22 years old

[...He’s 20-25 in the book, so this works...]

How about Adrian Dunbar as Uncle Andrew? He's got the sort of feverish eyes that I always imagine the character having, plus he's played an evil uncle at least once before, to my knowledge...
