  • If they ever made A Court of Thornes and Roses I think BB would make an incredible Rhysand

  • Can he just be cast in a period drama already as a brooding smoldering romantic lead pls

  • Would be a treat if the writers create a redemption arc for the darkling, a corruption arc for Alina , a common imminent threat to join forces for more darklina! Basically we want more Ben Barnes screen time lol.🖤

  • Just how polished he speaks. Such a grace. He truly is capable of holding the title and responsibility of The Darkling. I kinda agree with The Darkling, to every point. He is shown as a villain but if you see the world from his perspective then he is a hero. An anti hero at most. People hate the things they don't understand or are above themselves. Heck even gods were jealous of heroes that were equivalent to them. If I were a Grisha, without a doubt, I would follow The Darkling. Looking at the history, the world was cruel to Grisha. He was the sole protector of all of registered Grisha. I would back him up no matter what. His life purpose was a safe heaven for all Grisha, even when he was to use fear as a weapon to keep everyone in check.

  • As I said on tiktok, if authors don't want me to fall for the villains, they shouldn't give them a good reason behind their actions, because all he does is for the Grisha, and if the Darkling were to ask me for my opinion, since the Fjerdans are hunting Grisha down and killing them, as are in Shu Han to cut them open like lab rats and most of Ravka fears them, well, all I'd say is: make them suffer. Also Ben quoting the book >>>>>>>>>>>

  • Ben Barnes did a marvellous job in portraying Kirigan (as always, may I add? Yep that's talent). He brings nuances all along and creates this love/hate paradoxal feeling about the character. And he steals the light from th emain actress because... Really, who can say (s)he doesn't want to know more about Kirigan?

    • I agree with you. Ben plays the Darkling better than the book itself. I had the same feeling when I've read the book. Ben did a great job at making the Darkling stand out and gave him some humanity, making him more relatable and not so "cliche".

  • Darklina chemistry is just fire...Ben is perfect for this role as the darkling but in the books, Alina ends up with Mal.. which is going to break a lot of hearts.. I hope Darklina survives, I hope they end up together somehow. Alina and Mal is just a bit boring.
