Welcome to the newest thread about Anna Popplewell! There can be discussion on three topics:

1) Anna Popplewell in her role as Susan
2) Anna Popplewell in her other roles and public appearances
3) Anna Popplewell in the news! (Gossip is still off limits.)

Yes, you read it correctly! We are tweaking the topic to allow discussion about Anna outside of her role as Susan. We're including discussion on other roles that she has portrayed, and any news about Anna Popplewell (though gossip and rumors about the actor's personal life are still off limits). So have fun, and welcome to the new thread!

Second post!!!

I really liked Anna in her role as susan. She played the gentle queen very well. Though, I would really like to see her in some more movies, She's such a beautiful talented actress.

There hasn't been much new on her latley.... :| but I would really like to see some. Does any one know if she's done anything recently? Photo shoots....anything?

I second that, she's perfect as Susan, and it would be cool to see her in more movies

TheGeneral, welcome to the forum. What do you think makes Anna so perfect in the role of Susan? How do you think she fit the role?

As for me, I think she did a good job with what she was given. Some of the lines were a bit cheesy, but a good actress can rise above that and she definitely did that. :)

Thanks

Well first of all it's her appearance. She's very close to how I imagined her when I read the books (kind of a rare thing to happen for me). Plus I just think she's a good actor and came across very 'big sister-like', which is what Susan was in my head. She also did a good job of expressing both her character's weaknesses and strengths I think.
That's all ;)

I like Anna as Susan. Though she isn't exactly how I would picture her. But she did a GREAT job.
I didn't much like how they made her doing alot of fighting in Prince Caspian. Susan never seemed like the sort of girl to go out into battle.
But she did a good job at it. and it must have been lots of fun. :D

I think Anna did a superb job. She had no control of the script, so it's not her fault about Susan being misinterpreted. She took the part they gave her and ran with it. They wanted a character of strength and thats what she gave them. Good Job Anna!!!!! :ymapplause:


I saw the movie....and was disappointed

I think Anna did a wonderful job in portraying Susan. I agree with starkat in the fact that I found some of the lines a bit cheesy, but she still did an amazing job! She was very close to how I pictured Susan in the book. So, I was happy to see her cast in the movies. I will join Lady of the Narnians in applause. :ymapplause:

i love how Anna portrayed Susan. i could not picture another actress playing the part. though she's the gentle queen, i actually appreciated her part in the fight (not because i'm a war freak :) ) but because she was able to actually use the weapon given her and defend the land she loves. it also meant more screen time for her. i think she plays it really well because in real life she is kinda like Susan; smart, logical, beautiful, prim and proper.
though she lost her faith in The Last Battle, she's a good example how one can lose one's way because of the world. i just believe that she eventually did find her own faith back.

Go Anna! i wish to see her in more roles.

Completly agreed gentle susan, I think it is totally correct. About The Last Battle I mean. It's a really good image portrayed. I think Anna did so good with Susan, in both films. I just love how she is so doubting in hte first film, but learns to beleive. And in PC, she was just great, especially changing into a more 'wariror' type.

I loved Susan's character through the majority. I really loved how they had her fight in PC. Who wants to sit at home in your castle not knowing what's happening or how soon you'll see enemy soldiers coming over the hills to take the castle? And worrying about your family and friends. I would want to be right in the mix.

One of my favorite shots is when the camera shoots out and you see Susan surrounded by dead Telmarines. SUSAN TOTALLY ROCKS!!

I'm really looking forward to Jill's fighting in LB.

I think Anna Popplewell plays the part of Susan very well, though she is better in PC than in LWW (that's just my opinion). I hope they use her in The Horse and His Boy.
