LFCC – Ben Barnes

Ben Barnes is part of Marvel’s The Punisher and quite possibly still well known for his role as Prince Caspian in The Chronicle of Narnia films. Personally he has a cult status between myself and friends for Dorian Gray, which is now ten years old!

After the release of Kingsman this week it got me thinking about Colin Firth and how good his career has been and will continue to grow.
