Now, it has been the actor himself Andrew Garfield who wanted to reveal the reason why he did not get that role:
I remember being so desperate. I auditioned for Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia and I thought: This could be, this could be. And that handsome, brilliant actor Ben Barnes ended up getting the part. I think it was between him and me, and I remember he was obsessed. I asked my agent: Why not me? Eventually he broke down from my incessant scolding and said, It’s because they don’t think you’re handsome enough, Andrew. Ben Barnes is a very handsome and talented man. So in hindsight I’m not unhappy with the decision and I think he did a beautiful job. “
