All of the Friends of Narnia should come from the UK as that is how it was in the book.

As for the Narnians, it doesn't matter as much. The actors who played Miraz and Glozelle came from Italy. The one who played Sopespian was from Mexico. Maybe they could go into India or Japan to choose an actress for The Green Witch.

^ Other country actors for Narnians is fine, as long as they still speak 'neutral' English! (Unless they need a different accent.) There is a sense of accuracy and also pride to have the core characters hailing from England.

Maugrim's voice in LWW really jarred for me as he seemed to be the only character randomly with an American accent. Why would they do that??

I don't know why they'll do that. This brings me to something related. What should Puddleglum talk like. Would it make a difference if he talked like English or Welsh, or Scott or some other accent? I don't think Puddleglum should talk with an American accent though. That would be silly.

I think a Scottish accent for Puddleglum would be outstanding! Dour old Scot ...

another I Puddleglum and this is really unconventional, but fantasy author Neil Gaiman is an actor and his favorite character in Narnia is Puddglum. Not only dose he have the unruly hair, but I heard him talk and he has the dour voice PG needs.

As long as Puddleglum has a dour yet British/Scotch accent and isn't put on Prozac to be made chipper for modern audiences I'll be fine. Only a Brit could come up with a character like that. Look at AA Milne's Eeyore in Winnie-the Pooh, Douglas Adam's Marvin the Paranoid Android in Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy, and some of actor Anthony Daniel's ideas and input into the character of C-3P0 in Star Wars.

While a Scottish accent is fine an' all, I think in this instance it might take away a bit from his Eeyoreish, pessimistic way of speaking. The dullness in his voice should be clear; so better for a more 'neutral' English accent, methinks.

Although I must say the Welsh accent suggestion rather intrigues me!

I still want the new Puddleglum to look better than the one in the BBC version. Giving him just a dirty face and web fingers isn't enough.
