Benjamin Thomas Barnes, known mostly as Ben Barnes, is celebrating his 40th birthday today. While it’s hard to digest the fact that he has entered his 40s already, the man himself does not look older at all. Ben is famous for his roles of Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia movie series, Billy Russo in The Punisher, and General Kirigan (Darkling) in Shadow and Bone series. As his birthday gift to his fans, Ben has also announced his first EP.
Ben Barnes & his musical career
Ben Barnes always had a thing for music. In his EP announcement, he confirmed that releasing music has always been one of his unfulfilled dreams. Ben is a great singer. And he proved his skills for a few of his movies by actively taking part in the soundtracks. These movies include Easy Virtue, Killing Bono, and Jackie & Ryan.
Since his EP is coming out soon, as a fan I’d love his songs featured in the upcoming seasons of Shadow and Bone. General Kirigan should do everything to woo Alina Starkov, don’t you think?
One of my biggest unfulfilled dreams has been to release my own music. Music has been my passion my whole life and after a few false starts 20 years ago, I decided not to pursue it as a career. But today, I am realizing that ambition and announcing the release of my own songs.Ben Barnes
