Chronicles Of Narnia actress Georgie Henley has revealed how she failed to complete her scuba diving training, after she fainted underwater.

The 15-year-old, who reprises her role as Lucy Pevensie in the latest of the film series, decided to undertake a PADI scuba diving course to help provide her with handy skills for an underwater scene in The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.

"I couldn't complete my licence 'cause I had a bit of an accident - I fainted underwater," she revealed.

"It was on my birthday as well, which is pretty crazy. I wasn't out for long."

Georgie added: "I was very ill, I had an ear infection and a cold, we'd literally just flown in about two days earlier, so it just meant that I wasn't able to do it, but I will be able to finish it because we learnt half the skills and they did adapt a shot, so I could participate."

Her co-star Skandar Keynes, who plays Edmund Pevensie, relished the opportunity, saying: "It was really fun going and trying something new and pushing ourselves and gaining a new skill that I probably wouldn't have done otherwise, and it's great now I have a licence and I go anyway I want."

:: The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader opens in cinemas on December 9.
