'Narnia' in our world

11/08/04, 4:48 pm EST - Xoanon

Before he waddled on stage as Mr. Beaver on Sunday, 15-year-old Stephen Pick reminded the cast of "Narnia" that their goal is to do more than entertain. They have two stories to tell, one with wolves and witches and magic, but, "it's the story of our lives, too," Pick said. "The audience needs to see the second story. The second story is that God is in our world." [More]

Lewis biography takes an honest approach

11/03/04, 4:17 pm EST - Xoanon

In external events, the life of Clive Staples Lewis offers little promising material to a biographer. He pursued sedentary work as a literature professor and followed a predictable routine for most of his 65 years. We know next to nothing about his service in World War I (which he barely addresses in his autobiography) and little more about his romantic life, in spite of the play and film ''Shadowlands" that depicted his five-year relationship with Joy Davidman.

Sandro Kopp joins "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"

11/03/04, 4:02 pm EST - Tehanu

News came to us via Leo, who met Sandro Kopp at RingCon in Germany.

"Sandro Kopp (an extra in LOTR:TTT and LOTR:ROTK) seems to be the latest addition to the cast of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Got it from the horse's mouth himself so to say ;)

"Sandro will play one of the centaurs in the final battle, filming of which has already started on the South Island. In a reaction Sandro admitted needing to spend some time in the gym to work up his 'centaur-physique'."

Sandro Kopp appeared quite a lot on LOTR, where he played one of Elrond's elf lords at Rivendell, as well as being an extra in many other scenes. He is also a talented artist who used his downtime on the set to sketch the other cast members. He has his own website where you can read about it and see his artwork. [More]
