George McKay (b. 1992) who was in 1917. I meant George. Why the heck did I say Adam? Oh yeah - Adam is a screenwriter/director. Puddleglum deserves better.

Ugh, anyway I stand by McKay as a creative, younger take on Puddleglum; In 1917 he was (26-27) like a young Tolkien in WWI, and a solumn, steadfast soldier. Endearing. I'm trusting he'll be around 35 by the time Silver Chair is ready to be made.

But after hearing Doug Gresham talk about his gardner/housekeeper in that interview video, an older actor may be best for Puddleglum. Especially an actor who is VERY English of a certain kind. "That's all very well govner, but, if the world were to come to an end, where would we be with five pounds of sugar?" ;)

I was a bit confused for a while, wondering if you meant 2017! I didn't know there was a movie called '1917'. (quote marks are usef lol)

I'm surprised. You didn't know there was a movie called 1917? :-o :-o
It was kind of a big deal a few months ago. Made some money, won some awards.

Ugh, but I suppose few on NarniaWeb have seen that movie yet. :-\ :-\
It's only been out since Christmas. And no one is going out to buy movies.

So I guess you didn't know the actor or characters I was referring to. :| :|

At least my post wasn't boring. :ymhug: :ymhug:

Correct. I have had other things to deal with this year.

Do you have a link to a photo of George McKay looking just the way he could as Puddleglum?
