Here comes the stare.

A British actor, of Lebanese, Persian, and Turkish ascent, born on 5 September 1991 in London, England, best known for starring as Edmund Pevensie in the The Chronicles of Narnia 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. Since then he's become a political adviser for the Conservative Party.

He has an 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 economist John Maynard Keynes, 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 Charles Darwin, and thus also of the pottery magnate Josiah Wedgwood, and a distant relative of composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
