Ben Barnes Whisks Us Away On A 'Voyage' As This Week's Hump Day Hottie

Ben Barnes can take us to Narnia anytime he wants! The British babe has won our hearts in the big screen saga, which returns to the cineplex this weekend, with its third installment, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," and so in honor of the release, he's this week's Hump Day Hottie.

Press play on the video below to see more of Ben, and then keep reading for more details about him!


Vital stats: Ben is 29 and grew up in London with a younger brother named Jack. Ben studied drama and English literature at Kingston University and also dabbled in music. He was in the musical theater group, National Youth Music Theatre and was in a boy band, Hyrise, for a while.

Where you might have already seen him: He appeared in the "The Chronicles of Narnia" flick, "Prince Caspian," as the film's titular character in 2008, a role that launched him to fame, but before that, he starred in "Stardust" and "Bigga Than Ben." He's also been in "Locked In," "Dorian Gray" and "Easy Virtue."

Why you should take notice of him now: This week he's back for more Narnia action in "Voyage of the Dawn Treader," and next year he's set to star in "Killing Bono," a film about two brothers (one of which is played by Ben) who want to become rock stars, but their plans are foiled by U2.

Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Ben by pressing play on the video above!
