Anna Popplewell

Anna Popplewell returns to the land of Narnia as older sister Susan in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, this time showing a softer, more emotional side (unlike her pragmatic persona in the previous adventure). In the midst of the forming battle, she finds herself falling for the young, handsome Prince Caspian. The film represents the teenage Susan's final appearance in the series. Popplewell made her professional acting debut in the 1998 television adaptation of du Maurier's novel, Frenchman's Creek.

She has appeared in such other feature films as The Little Vampire, Me Without You and Mansfield Park. Her television roles include Dirty Tricks and the BBC costume dramas Love in a Cold Climate and Daniel Deronda. Prior to her role in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the 19-yearold beauty appeared as Vermeer's eldest daughter in Peter Webber's globally acclaimed drama, Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Born and raised in London (the daughter of a barrister father and doctor mother), she is the eldest of three siblings, all of whom have attended Allsorts, a children's drama class. Her sister Lulu appeared in Richard Curtis' Love, Actually, and her brother Freddie was Michael Darling in P.J. Hogan's 2003 film, Peter Pan. Following her work on PRINCE CASPIAN, Popplewell began her studies in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, where author Lewis spent much of his academic career.
