Who is Ben Barnes and what else has the Gold Digger star been in? – The Sun

BRITISH actor Ben Barnes is set to star in new miniseries Gold Digger, set to air on BBC One.

This isn't Barnes' first rodeo as he has other significant roles in his career, let's take a closer look at some of them.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

At the age of 27 Barnes landed the starring role in the very popular franchise The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

Barnes had read the novel as a child and loved the idea and within a fortnight of meeting with the filmmakers, he was given the role.

The London-born actor spent two months in New Zealand learning how to do stunts and ride horses to be ready to shoot the film.

He also appeared in the third film of the series The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, this time as King Caspian.

Westworld

In the summer of 2015, it was reported that Barnes would replace Eion Bailey as Logan Delos in science-fiction thriller Westworld.

The first series aired in 2016 and is based on the 1973 film of the same name and also the film's 1976 sequel Futureworld.

Westworld is about a fun-filled and technologically advanced Wild-West theme park, where guests may indulge their wildest fantasies in the park without needing to worry about the android 'hosts'.

The Punisher

 

Barnes has played a significant role in the Netflix original series The Punisher.

He starred in the Marvel film as Billy Russo, otherwise known as Jigsaw.

His character runs a private military operation known as Anvil.

His character changes in series two where he develops scars on his face, memory loss and his mind becomes fragmented, hence the name 'Jigsaw'.

This happened after another character called Castle smashed his head into a mirror at the end of the first season.
