- On being called the next Orlando Bloom: "I am not in that league of action heroes but if you have to put some tag on me then the new Orlando is as good as any."
On Hyrise's (his ex-band) 'Leading me on' performance being on Youtube: "I've done so many musical projects but it's just unfortunate that the worst and the shortest one is the one that ended up on YouTube. It was just something amusing to do while at college. It was kind of funny at the time, but not so much now."
"I thought being in a band would be a laugh and the song was OK, catchy."
- On auditioning for the role of Prince Caspian: "I was thinking that whoever walked into the audition next had a much better chance than the guy who had walked in 13 months ago."
- On his reaction when he found out he got the role of Prince Caspian: "It was 3am and I was at home. I ran around my house screaming. It was like winning the FA Cup. It was too late to get a drink and I could not phone anyone, so I just ran around."
"I stayed up all night trembling. In the morning I felt as though I had dreamt it because I was so tired and delirious."
I got involved (in "Caspian") very late, very late, literally a couple of weeks before they had to start shooting. I think they were desperate, at this point. 'Whoever walks in the door next, THAT'S the guy.' And it was me. (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, May 13, 2008)
- Obviously, you wouldn't be human if you didn't get a disposable camera and try and get a picture of yourself by your own movie billboard. (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, May 13, 2008)
- The audition was to play a Los Angeles lifeguard. So I turn up, pasty, skinny, off the plane, black shirt. I walk in, there's like ten guys in there, blonde, tanned, enormous. And I kid you not, one of them had his pant leg rolled up and was going, "Dude, I just don't know how to get the definition in my calves. I can't do it." And I thought, I'm in the wrong place. (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, May 13, 2008)
- I played a rock star alien. I even made my own guitar -- out of cardboard. It was spectacular, if I may say so myself. (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, May 13, 2008)
- My favorite one to eat pizza with is Anna (Popplewell). My favorite one to go to the gym with is William (Moseley). My favorite one to mock and be mocked by is Skandar (Keynes) and my favorite one to hug is Georgie (Henley).
- On being recognized: Not on a regular basis. You'd be surprised how people don't put two and two together. I was on a plane from New York to L.A. and the only movie that was playing was 'Stardust'. And the first 10 minutes of that movie is pretty much just me. I was thinking, "Oh no, this is embarrassing, everyone's going to be looking at me." And ... nothing! Nothing ... so maybe no one will recognize me in 'Caspian' either.
- About the wardrobe in "Prince Caspian": I felt awkward when they first gave me the shirt and it had like flowers on it. And I was like, "Really? Flowers? Flowers on the shirt?" But then when they gave me - when they showed me, "Yeah, but later on you get the big armor with the lion on it." I was like, "Okay. Cool. Trade."
- On his reaction to the "Prince Caspian" posters: I don't know. It's a combination thing. Mostly it's just weird. Mostly it's just surreal. I mean you walk, you know, you drive down Sunset Boulevard and there you are, you know, fifteen stories high. And it is surreal. And it's a little bit ... it's embarrassing. But it's flattering at the same time. You know, a big part of you thinks it's really cool and then another part of me worries that, you know, this is kind of an ensemble film why is there not, why haven't they got a busy poster like they had for the last one? You know, it's starting to feel like pressure to be this kind of action hero, which is not the character at all. But, you know, it's great and it's scary.
- When asked if he has Googled himself: Have I Googled myself? Yeah, well, a little while ago. I don't like it; I don't like the Internet. No. It's not a healthy place to go if you're in the public eye. Because there's too many people who have too many opinions about you, and about your acting. And, you know, everyone wants to be a critic. I just don't really approve of it. I've never been on the Internet saying what I think of somebody else's performance in something. (How do you deal with that?) Well, you have to ignore the really over the top good stuff and you have to ignore the really over the top bad stuff. And kind of be confident in the fact that you know it's probably somewhere in the middle. And that's sort of what I'm trying to do at the moment.
