I interviewed James Marsden who played Prince Edward on November 4. "To me, it seemed really exciting to be in a Disney movie. It was a job I knew I was going to have a lot of fun doing," Marsden said. "Doing a musical sounded like a pretty cool idea." It won't be giving too much away to tell you that this Disney movie, like so many other Disney movies, is about finding true love. Marsden believes in true love. "I do believe in true love, and my wife is my princess," Marsden said. "Even today in the real world you can still find your prince or princess."

 

In the movie, Marsden does his own stunts. This even includes getting run over by bikes and riding on top of a bus. He took fencing lessons to learn how to handle the sword so he didn't get hurt. One fun part of the movie for Marsden was how he had to use his imagination. Several of the figures in the movie are computer generated and so were added after the acting. "I had fun pretending" Marsden said.

 

Marsden's acting career started in high school when he starred in a musical. At first, he was nervous, but after the musical was done, he realized he had a fun time and decided to make acting a career. What a great career he has had so far! Marsden starred as Scott Summers/Cyclops in the "X-Men" movie series and Corny Collins in "Hairspray." In "Enchanted," he gets to show many of his talents as he sings and dances his way into his true love's arms.
