Anna Popplewell

A child actress at the age of six in her native Britain, Anna Popplewell made her feature film debut in "Mansfield Park" (1999). A string of supporting roles in U.K. film and television projects followed, including the all-star miniseries "Love in a Cold Climate" (2003) and the feature "Girl with a Pearl Earring" (2003). In 2004, she was cast as the sensible Susan Pevensie in Disney's film version of the classic C.S. Lewis fantasy, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005). The film's Oscar and box office success necessitated sequels, with Popplewell returning to play Susan in "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" (2008) and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" (2010). Though her early career was dominated by the "Narnia" films, there was no doubt that the young actress had a long and fruitful career ahead of her.
