Inside of Narnia | Anna Popplewell - Susan Pevensie
1) The Pevensies in Narnia
2) Anna and William embrace on the last day of shooting in New Zealand
• "I can relate to Susan," Anna said about her character. "She thinks in terms of practicality. There are certain areas where we're very similar and certain areas where we're not. I feel very defensive of her. If anyone accuses Susan of being an outright cynic, I'll say, 'No, she's not. There's a perfectly logical explanation for it all. Don't talk about her like that!'"
• "I think sometimes the work off camera that you don't get to see is some of the most important," said Anna. "If we're doing a scene and I have to get angry, then William will be off-screen when I'm doing mg close-up and he'll try to make me angrier. He'll go out of his way to help me out. We all do the same for each other."
• From the very beginning, Georgie looked to Anna for guidance. When filming the scene where the Pevensie children spend their first night in the Professor's house, Georgie looked to Anna for off-screen support just like Lucy looked to Susan for on-screen support. She searched over the bright lights and called out a timid, "Anna?" Anna answered in a comforting voice, "It's okay, Georgie; you can do it." And Georgie did.
• Anna described William as "very charismatic and very open - very good-looking, too. I've never had a big brother in real life, and now William has become one for me."
• The first thing Anna noticed about Skandar were his eyes. "Skandar has these eyes that are really expressive and quite penetrating." She recalled, "he was quite shy at first actually, believe it or not." That did, however, change. Drastically. "The first weeks on set he played loads of jokes."
