Happy birthday to an endlessly talented actor, musician and an iconic embodiment of all cool heroes from the good books in the flesh - Mr Ben Barnes)))
Nearly 9 yrs ago "The Cronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" became the first movie I've seen with Ben and I still believe that summer was very important in my life, because I found much more than another actor to like. First of all,Prince Caspian is the only prince that I've ever liked - and this fact still makes me blush. (To understand the awkwardness of situation I'll explain - by the time the movie came out I used to listen to Slipknot,A7x,Static-X,BFMV - and,all of a sudden - fairytale prince... Omg,my cheeks r burning))))
Above all Caspian made me read all the books 'bout Narnia and ever since then they are my favourite. It made me also read more books about the time the book was written and love history even more.
Later "Dorian Gray" and "Easy Virtue" made me come back to reading English Classic literature and I opened up the whole world - and I'm still in it)))
Than there was "Killing Bono" - and it made me start to listen to U2, watch "Misfits" and explore the roots of the music I used to like at that moment - and my playlist is still full of the Beatles,Simon and Garfunkel,Ramones,Sex Pistols, The Smiths, Stone Roses etc...
If this is not how the best of arts should affect people,motivating them to get to know something more and deeper,than Idk what is. And all thanks to this guy.
Every movie I've seen left a mark in my heart. Every role was played so excellent,so I forgot about the time.
if you're reading this,I wish you all the best in life - real and on-screen. I wish you more interesting roles - both profound (after Dorian Gray I still believe you'll be a perfect match for playing Rodion Raskolnikov or anything from Russian Classic literature one day)) and hilarious - there's nothing you won't be capable of. Thank you so much for being sincere in everything you do - this is incredibly inspiring. And once again - Happy Birthday!!! (Sorry for this strange collage - couldn't keep my hands off)
