A British actor, of Lebanese, Persian and Turkish descent, born on 5 September 1991, best known for starring as [[AntiHero Edmund Pevensie]] in the ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'' film series. He has appeared in all three installments, ''The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'', ''Prince Caspian'' and ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', which was released on 10 December 2010. He also starred as young ''Enzo Ferrari''.

Keynes stated that he didn't want to continue his acting career, but carry on with his college studies, confirming at one point that he wanted a career in History or Medicine.

He has an [[HeroicLineage impressive ancestry and family]], as he's the grandson of a physiologist, the nephew of a historian and Cambridge professor, the great-great nephew of an economist, a great-grandson of a Nobel Prize laureate, on his father's side (who is also a writer), and the grandson of a president's advisor and author, as well as the great-nephew of a major Historian of the Middle East, on his mother's side.

He's also the descendant of the great biologist CharlesDarwin.

!!This actor provides examples of:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: He has a [[TroubledButCute natural, dark, bad boy look]], which is one of the many reasons he had so much success with female fans. Also, one of the reasons the director chose him for [[AntiHero the role]] was that he especially looked like the bad guy, having the [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette striking complexion of black hair, pale skin and a dark allure]].
* [[{{Atheism}} Atheist]]: Some people were bothered that an atheist actor was playing in a Christian production, but he managed to avoid the problem.
* BigEater: [[http://edmund-the-just.tumblr.com/post/25173341555/otp On screen and off-screen too]].
* DeadpanSnarker: "This is a blonde trying to understand the computer, but failing. Hes got two brunettes to help him out. Unfortunately, [[DumbBlonde its too much to explain to a blonde]]".
* HatesBeingTouched: When he was a kid, he hated being hugged, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which was why all his cast-mates jumped on him, yelling ''Group hug!'']].
* KubrickStare: [[http://content8.flixster.com/photo/10/52/03/10520326_ori.jpg He]] [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mar815l0XZ1qifgz2o1_500.png does]] [[http://img2.bdbphotos.com/images/orig/v/t/vtnpo6bw69ihb66n.jpg it]] ''[[http://img2.bdbphotos.com/images/orig/5/1/51f8esblil9qliqs.jpg a lot]]''. [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9y9xyuCYX1qgnixfo2_400.jpg Even as Edmund]]. Anna Popplewell even said on her first impression of him that [[WhatBeautifulEyes his eyes are really expressive and quite penetrating]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue oni, both in physical appearance and personality, to WilliamMoseley, [[DarkSkinnedBlonde who's in contrast with him]] and much more hyperactive and overly talkative than the collected Skandar, particularly in interviews. He's also the blue oni to Georgie Henley.
* SlapSlapKiss: Had a SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl dynamic with GeorgieHenley, in their earlier years. Due to her [[PluckyGirl pluckiness]], he had a tendency to be sarcastic to her, which is noticeable in most audio commentary that is made for this film. They also used to bicker quite often.
