Actors and Actresses from Previous Narnia Adaptions In New Ones?

NarniaWeb Guru

There’s been a couple of speculation about William Moseley and Will Poulter liking to make an appearance in the new Narnia screen adaptations: Will Poulter Would Be Down for Returning to Narnia and Narnia Star William Moseley ‘Would Go in a Heartbeat’ to Greta Gerwig’s Narnia, But Thinks It’s Unlikely. While it may be unlikely that either will make an appearance in the new Narnia films or series, it’s still possible. 

There’s probably some other actors that could possibly make an appearance, even if it’s just cameo. I’m not sure if there’s any I could think of that I would like to see.

Is there any actor or actress from the previous Narnia screen adaptions that you would like to see in the new ones?

Despite all their faults I love the Walden Media Narnia films and would be thrilled if they included William Moseley and Will Poulter in any upcoming adaptations since they both seem to have a strong affection for Narnia but right now I am going to go way back to the BBC Narnia adaptations and say I'd like to Samuel West make an appearance (in my head I see him as Professor Kirke, Miraz, or Lord Bern) but don't know if that's likely, he seems to mostly take jobs that are filmed in the UK and I am assuming the Netflix Narnia will be on a very grand scale with international filming locations. 

Richard Dempsey still acts too, mostly very small roles but it would be fun to see him involved in even a small way with a new Narnia.

Warwick Davis starred in Walden's PC as Nikabrik and in the BBC versions as Reepicheep and Glimfeather, so it's not out of the question that he might come back as one of the "short" characters in a new adaptation!

To me the best actor EVER in a Narnia adaptation was Tom Baker as Puddleglum in the BBC's SC, but he's a lot older now and I don't know if he takes acting roles any more. Actually, with his deep and easily mysterious-sounding voice, perhaps he could now make a good Professor / older Digory...
