Haven't you grown up, Anna Popplewell? Narnia star sashays up the red carpet in hot pants and high heels

Child actress no more: Anna Llewellyn showed off her adult sense of style on the red carpet at the premiere of The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud

The last time we saw little Anna Popplewell, she was an excited teenager making waves on the big screen in an adaptation of The Chronicles of Narnia.

At the tender age of 16, her portrayal of Susan in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe made her the envy of aspiring child actresses and gained her critical acclaim.

And it seems, after a hiatus in which she studied English Literature at Oxford University, the 21-year-old is ready to make her mark on British cinema - this time as an adult.

Sashaying up the 'red' carpet at the premiere of Zac Efron vehicle The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, the actress wore embellished black hotpants and peep-toe sky-high heels.

The message to casting agents was clear - no more child parts please.

Although Popplewell still has the same girl-next-door good looks that made her perfect for the part in the Narnia films, she is noticeably more refined.

In addition to her risque sense of style, the former student displayed a mane of glossy chesnut hair and a megawatt smile.

Her next appearance on the big screen will be a reprisal of Susan in the next Narnia film, The Voyage of the Dawntreader.

Like The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, the film will also be based on the novel by C. S. Lewis.

After this, it is unclear what her next role will be but we are pretty sure she won't be at a loose end for long.
