Georgie Henley in “NARNIA” For The Last Time
Georgie Henley returns to Narnia for the third and last time in “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” based on the C.S. Lewis classic children’s book series. Fittingly enough, her very final scenes for director Michael Apted were action packed, typical of the adventure that she’s been on, both on screen and off, playing the delightful Lucy Pevensie who has journeyed far and wide into the magical realm of Narnia.
In the third film “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the story centers on the younger Pevensie siblings Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes), who undertake the voyage of a lifetime. The adventure begins in Cambridge, England, during World War II when the children are staying at the home of their unbearably irritating cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb (Will Poulter). All three are swallowed into a painting of a beautiful ship out at sea.
The children find themselves under the ocean and emerge above water to see the majestic Dawn Treader in front of them. They are hauled up on deck, where all except Eustace are thrilled to be on board, together again with their great friend Caspian (Ben Barnes), who is now King Caspian and the mighty brave mouse Reepicheep.
Born in Yorkshire in northern England, Georgie was just nine years old when she beat out thousands of other hopefuls and landed the highly coveted part of Lucy for the first film, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She then reprised the role for Prince Caspian in 2007, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader marks her last appearance as the character.
“I was also doing some archery for my last shots as well ,bow and arrow stuff, which is great as well. Michael came up and spoke to me and Skandar was also there, and we all had a big hug. It was really nice but it was very sad and the worst thing was saying goodbye to everybody, the rest of the cast and the crew; that was very hard, ” relates Lucy.
She has, of course, grown up a lot since she first played Lucy and watching the first film, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, as she did again recently, is a bit like watching a different person, she says.
“A lot of people kind of assume that I’m called Lucy because I’ve grown up playing her. Some people only know me because I’ve played Lucy and it’s interesting because Lucy and I are kind of polar opposites,” she laughs. “So it’s kind of weird for me when people kind of compare me to her. But Lucy has been a great character to play. She’s very much loved I think and a lot of the audience can relate to her for different reasons. I’m very lucky to play her and I’ve enjoyed living with her.”
Interestingly enough, Georgie sees herself differently from her first Narnia film. “Well first of all, I don’t even think of her as myself anymore because I look so different. I like to think I have less chubby cheeks now than I did then! But I actually quite like watching the first film because I just remember how amazed I was everyday and how all the new experiences were so great for me.”
C.S Lewis wrote seven, highly acclaimed Narnia books but the Pevensie children only feature in the first three so for Georgie her amazing adventures in Narnia are over. The final scenes of the movie, as opposed to the last scenes she filmed on set, were filmed some two months into the six month shoot.
“It’s definitely the last film in which I’ll be playing Lucy and I do feel sad because I’ve had such a great time making these films and being Lucy has certainly helped my career.
