Chronicles of Narnia’s rarely seen child star Georgie Henley is unrecognisable 17 years after film

Nov 26, 2021

SHE rose to fame playing Lucy Pevensie in the Chronicles of Narnia film franchise when she was just eight years old.

And these days Georgie Henley looks a far cry from the young star who appeared alongside the likes to Tilda Swinton and James McAvoy.

Georgie, who played Lucy Pevensie in the classic film, was just 10-years-old when the movie debuted.

She’s now 26 and still working as an actress – most recently starring in a one-woman play called Tarantula at the Southwark Playhouse in London in spring of this year.

Beyond the Narnia chronicles, Georgie appeared in 4 more films during the 2010s: Perfect Sisters (2014), The Sisterhood of Night (2015), Access All Areas (2017), and a short film called Girl, Sweetvoiced (2019).

She also had a starring role in hit Netflix series The Spanish Princess.

She went on to attend the University of Cambridge, all whilst performing on stage, all in plays like Play It Again, Sam, The Penelopiad, The Trojan Woman, and  A Clockwork Orange.

Her Instagram reveals she is very good friends with Jonathan Ross’s daughter Honey and she is an LBQT+ ally.

Speaking about her role in the Narnia films, Georgie previously said: “It’s so funny because it feels like so long ago but then also like no time at all has passed.

“During quarantine, I’ve been going through my photos and memory boxes. It’s so insane to look at pictures from that time. I can remember everything. But wow, such a long time ago.”

She continued to the Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast: “In terms of being proud… I feel so lucky to have been Lucy. While we’ve all been in lockdown, the amount of people who have been messaging me about watching Narnia as a comfort movie, or an escape from all of this, it makes me feel so lucky to be that for people.”
