If your hearts a-throbbin’, you must be listening to this week’s very special episode of The B-Movies Podcast. This week, host William Bibbiani (everyone calls him “Bibbs”) sits down for an extended, off the cuff interview with the dashing leading man Ben Barnes, who stars in the new fantasy thriller Seventh Son opposite Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and Oscar nominee Julianne Moore. You know already know him as the star of fantasy epics like Stardust and Prince Caspian, and now you’re going to swoon all over again as you listen to his in-depth episode of our show.
[Editor’s Note: There is a brief audio glitch towards the beginning of the podcast. We apologize. It only lasts a few seconds and thankfully, it never comes back.]
Listen attentively as we grill Ben Barnes about what it’s like to be interviewed (irony!), his experiences filming Seventh Son, the origin of Jeff Bridges’ memorable accent, what it’s like having multiple friends up for Oscars in the same year, and his eight-day career in the British boy band Hyrise, which wasn’t nearly as cool as it sounds. In fact, Ben Barnes describes the experience as “awful.”
