The Chronicles of Narnia is a television series that made a lot of seemingly ordinary actors and actresses who are prominent in the entertainment world. One of those benefactors who starred in the series is Skandar Keynes as Edmund Pevensie. He is an English actor who descends from prominent figures such as naturalist, biologist and geologist Charles Darwin (as great-great-grandson), economist John Maynard Keynes (great-great-grandson) and physiologist Richard Keynes (as his grandson).
This then means that Skandar has more to offer to Keynes, whom he has portrayed in television series and in some other works in which he has been a part. However, since the actor has few works to his name and doesn’t appear to be active in the entertainment industry at the moment, many people have been woken up about his whereabouts. Find out where he is located among other things The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe cast members.
Skandar Keynes bio, dude
The English actor was born on September 5, 1991 in Camden, London. His full name is Alexander Amin Casper Keynes but we mostly know him as Skandar Keynes. Skandar was born to Zelfa Hourani (mother) and Randal Keynes. an English writer and conservationist who is the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin. In the acting family, his only known sibling and older sister is Soumaya Anne Keynes, an economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies who has also worked at BBC Radio 4.
Skandar Keynes had his primary education at Thornhill Primary School from 1996 to 2002 but before graduating in 2002 he enrolled at Anna Scher Theater School where he studied from 2000 to 2005. After his time at Theater School, he enrolled at the City of London School (2005) and in October 2010 he began studying Arabic and Middle Eastern history at Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 2014.
He began his acting career with a role in the television documentary Queen Victoria died in 1901 and is alive today (2001) as the character Walf, next came his starring roles in Ferrari (2003) as Enzo Ferrari; An 8 year old in the movie. He got his big break in acting with a role in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005) as Edmund Pevensie. As he acted in the series, his voice began to change as a result of puberty, which is why his older sister’s (Soumaya Anne Keynes) voice was used in certain parts of the film.
Skandar Keynes reprized his role as Edmund Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian , The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian T4 Film Special (2008) and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Traitor in 2010, we last heard his voice as Sir Allan Kerr in the radio play The Extraordinary Adventures of GA Henty: In the Matter of Liberty (2014).
Is he a gay man or does he have a girlfriend?
The Britton is an unmarried young man but has been in a number of celebrity relationships with a handful of beautiful women. Skandar Keynes first began dating Rebecca Swinton in 2005, but the following year they had split for unknown reasons. Next was his alleged relationship with American musician Taylor Momsen in 2008, but there’s no concrete reason to believe anything really happened between them. In 2010, the British actor is said to have been in a relationship with English actress Georgie Henley again. The two reportedly met while filming Narnia in 2004. However, none of the movie stars have confirmed their relationship.
As for the issue of his sexuality, Skandar Keynes was rumored online at one time to be gay. That being said, the actor hasn’t come out as gay or debunked the rumours. Since he is known to have mostly dated girls, it can be said with some certainty that he is not gay until Skandar proves otherwise.
Where is he now?
As such, Keynes had what can be a relatively short acting career, or rather, starred in a few films before going under the radar. Many people have wondered what he’s up to at the moment and where he is now. We did, too, and sought information on his whereabouts.
His last recorded acting work was in a radio play entitled The Extraordinary Adventures of GA Henty: In Freedom’s Cause (2014). Since this project, Skandar has not been featured in any recent film or audio work. However, we do know for sure that he is now working as an English political adviser for the Conservative Party. Because of this, we don’t see him as an actor in movies and TV series anymore. Since he rose to fame as an actor at a young age, his appearance has changed a lot, making it confusing for many people to identify him when they see him.
Maybe he’ll return to our TV screens sometime in the future, and while we wait, let’s hope it won’t be long.
