Georgie Henley Wants To 'Experience Everything'

Georgie Henley Wants To 'Experience Everything'

Georgie Henley isn’t just a Narnian queen — she’s wanting to spread her wings into everything.

The 15-year-old British beauty opened up to Noir mag about her love for the craft, going outside of Lucy and being a romantic biker chick. Check it:

On what drew her into acting: “I love being able to do what I love for a job. I love the travelling aspect of it, I’ve been places before the age of sixteen that some people never go in their whole lives and I’m so lucky. I love working with other people who have the same passion as me. But I hate being in front of a camera some days when I’m feeling insecure like any teenager would. Sometimes I hate being away from my family and friends but it’s something which is part of what I do and I have to accept that.

On her dreams outside of Narnia: “I’d love to do something the polar opposite to Narnia, something smaller and more focused on acting because I think the best thing you can do as an actor is experience everything.”

On her fashion style: “I’d say my fashion sense is a big mash-up of biker, classic, romantic. I think it’s really important to balance out your clothes proportions, as in the right mix of tight and baggy, I definitely prefer baggy! As for my style changing, I loved bright colours when I was younger, the brighter the better. Now I stick to dark colours like black or grey or I wear nudes which I love.”

    I’d love to see her again even outside Narnia!! :) I love her. I feel so old because she’s now a young lady. I’d love to see ALL of them again.

    ars magna sciendi, (knowing everything)

  • good-one

    Hmm. Actually, ars magna sciendi is more specific than omniscience. It really means, “the greatest art is understanding everything”. Several things keep you in the box. Fear and pain are tight crucibles. There are also built-in social injunctions. Social injunction acts as a switch. You generally accept the prevailing fables about the “reality of things”, (which Napoléon called fable convenue) and you normally have to be given permission from someone or somewhere, to flip that injunction off-switch, in order to learn, explore or experience those things outside that agreed upon fable. It is possible to give yourself that permission, but that is generally far beyond the scope of most everybody’s capability, because there are other socially built-in inhibitors along the way, such as ridicule and shame for being “different”. Your greatest tool for overcoming that, is your resolve.

    She’s gorgeous. I’d love to see her in an indy film, or any film where she’s the polar opposite of Lucy.
