    • Anna: (On the set of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe) It's a laid-back set, and everyone's very friendly. Andrew is so relaxed that it makes everyone else relaxed

    • Anna:(on her experience of filming The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe) It's gone more quickly than I expected; the time has really flown past. It's a bit like a long and lovely dream, and now I'm ready to wake up.

    • Anna: (about fansites) I've seen a couple of fansites and I've seen NarniaWeb a while back. But, there seems to be a lot of internet support which is great, I don't think anyone has posted messages on there. I know I haven't. Anyhoo. It's out there but what is reportedly from us really isn't. But, I think we're all aware of the internet. Which is really nice and we all really appreciate it.

    • Anna: It can be bizarre, today I had a normal day at school, then I went to Armani Couture and spent three hours looking for a dress to wear to the premiere, then I went home to do my essays.

    • Anna: I think the weirdest experience I had was I was on holiday in the summer and I hadn't seen the trailer in cinemas, I'd only seen the tape of it, and I went with some friends of friends to see War Of The Worlds and I didn't know the trailer was on it and they'd only just met me and they didn't know about the film and I got this sudden [points] 'Is that you?!' It was really embarrassing; a really weird experience.

    • Anna: (on her character, Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia) I can relate to Susan. 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!'

  • Anna Popplewell as Lady Lola

    I love actor's game of Anna. It is so fine. I enjoy their joint chemistry with Craig Parker.
  • She's gorgeous

    I can't believe how beautiful she is and she is so smart. Everything about her physical appearance is just perfect for me. I hope she chooses great roles in the future after Narnia because she definitely has the potential to be an amazing actress. I would love to see her a do a really serious movie that offers large challenges, but also great strides in her career. She definitely has the talent and charisma to make a movie truly great and amazing. I know a lot of people have talked about her doing the role of Wonder Woman, but I really liked to see her do something more serious even if it's a controversial political thriller.moreless
