Broadbent Plays Down Narnia Movie Role

Subscribe to Jim Broadbent alerts

British actor Jim Broadbent is modest about his role in the new movie adaptation of CS LEWIS's The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, because the kids are the real stars.

The IRIS OSCAR winner appears alongside Tilda Swinton, Rupert Everett, Ray WINSTONE and Brian Cox in The Chronicles Of Narnia: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE - but he insists he shouldn't be confused as a star of the film.

Broadbent, 55, says, "I play the character who made the wardrobe.

"It was a pretty easy job. I'm there when the children for into the wardrobe an I'm there to pull them out."
