Ben Barnes is in Hyrise Heaven

Ben Barnes is in Hyrise Heaven

WOW. Look what a shave, four years and long hair can do for you. From hot to even hotter!

This picture was taken in London back in February 2004 when Prince Caspian star Ben Barnes was in the pop group Hyrise.

Check out the video of Barnes performing with Hyrise on the UK television show Eurovision in 2004. Cheesy boy band dance moves at its best!

“My pop career lasted for all of 4½ minutes,” Barnes has said. “[My costars] were dancing to it, no matter what they say.”
