Quotes From Skandar

[On costar, William Moseley] ''When it's all over I won't miss the bruises he gave me to impress girls, or the occasional scar which will give me a story to tell my grandchildren, but I'll definitely miss the pranks and the laughing and all the making fun of each other. I'll miss the funky advice he gives me about everything -- football, girls, video games, clothes. Most of all, I'll miss having an older brother.''

[On meeting the cast for the first time] "I remember sitting down and they were all like 'hey, how you doing? Good to see you again' and they had running jokes and I was thinking 'what is going on'. I was very nervous."

[On costar, Georgie Henley] ''When I first met Georgie, she was very eager to talk. Georgie is great. She's small and hilarious. To laugh at. I mean with - to laugh with.''

[About director Andrew Adamson] ''He's magical. He's great with children. Amazingly fun and cool and funny. Lots of hair too.''

[On what he found to be the most fun whilst working on the film] ''The most fun was probably walking on set every morning and saying ,'Hey, how you doing' to like 500 people. So walk on set and saying hey to everyone, you can never really be unhappy. Everybody wants to be and it was really fun to be there. Some days I wish I could go back and say hey to everyone.''

[On the cricket scene] ''For safety reasons during the rehearsal we had to use a rubber ball, which has a really strange bounce that made it hard to hit. Then when we were finally using the real ball for the scene, Will bowled it wide of me every single time so I couldn't hit it. I was furious. Then Andrew started to doubt that I could actually play cricket, and he asked me to pretend to hit the ball for the rest of the rehearsals. On the next ball, I hit it as hard as I could. It smashed into some of our lighting, and the crew yelled, «Skan-DAR!» ''

[On the books] ''I read the book when I was like eight or seven. And I got the first audition when I was about 12. Ever since, it’s played quite a major role in my life because I went away for six months and I don't think a month or a week goes by without someone saying it in my house, so it’s had a big effect on my life and not for the worst reasons. It’s been good.''

[On his character, Edmund Pevensie] ''Well, let's see. Edmund is the black sheep of the family, the outcast. He's always trying to get up to the level of the older two by putting down Lucy. He's very immature and full of resentment.''

[On fangirls] ''After school, I was hanging out with these girls and there's one I've never seen before. So she runs up to me and tells me I'm in Teen Vogue. And I'm like, «Yeah, that's me.» I'm thinking, this is the way to live. And she goes, «So you must know Will.» ''

[On his character, Edmund Pevensie] ''I prefer my character over all the others. I really think I have the best character. Of course, he's a lot like me. He is the tyrant of the family, which I am, and, yep, he succumbs to temptation very easily. Edmund is the black sheep of the family, always teasing Lucy. But, in the end, Narnia makes him good. He goes through the most radical change, starts to appreciate his family. The adventure really changes him into a better person.''

Quotes About Skandar

''Skandar has these eyes that are really expressive and quite penetrating.'' -- Anna Popplewell

''He was the coolest though when I called all the kids to tell them they'd got the part. I didn't realise I'd caught Skandar on his cell phone while he was on the bus. I said «I've got some good news for you, you've got the part!» and he was like «oh yeah, cool, thanks.» '' -- Andrew Adamson

''Skandar has girls' disease, which is a, um, mild form of hating all women.'' -- William Moseley

''I have to say that working with Skandar is as you might have gathered, a very bright individual. And like all bright individuals, he’s a delight to be around. We just played. It’s just playing. We just played all day and then sometimes the camera was on and then sometimes the camera wasn’t on. It was very, very simple.'' -- Tilda Swinton

''Edmund is probably the most developed character in the book, and he was in some ways the easiest to know what to look for, but the hardest to find. Then along came Skandar and he was, really bright, funny, energetic, just full of beans, and very wicked. He had a wonderful darkness in his eyes and was mischievous, sweet and adorable all at the same time. Those were the character traits I really wanted Edmund to have - to be able to pull off this darkness and still be lovable.'' -- Andrew Adamson
