Ben Barnes Living The Dream

Ben Barnes says acting is his "dream job".

The British star - who appears in new comedy 'Killing Bono', by director Nick Hamm - feels incredibly lucky to be able to do what he loves for a living and can't imagine doing anything else.

He said: "Acting is my dream job. I'm happy and thankful I'm not one of those people who aren't sure whether they want to keep doing the job they've learnt when they finish their studies. I'm living it!"

The 28-year-old star shot to fame playing Caspian in the 'Chronicles of Narnia' series but he's keen to branch out and take on different roles.

He said: "I'm always looking for new things and experiences, because the end of curiosity is always the beginning of boredom. And boredom is hell on earth."

Despite his growing film career, Ben, 28, is glad he can still go out without being recognised all the time.

He previously said: "People don't really notice me. Maybe it's because I have my hair back or I have a beard. People recognise actors they see regularly, like people they see on television every week. For the most part, people probably have only seen me in one or two films."
