'Quidditch Through The Ages' To Be narrated by 'The Walking Dead' Star

Pottermore is planning the release of a new audio-book version of its "go-to guide to the high-flying sport," with British actor Andrew Lincoln, star of The Walking Dead, set to narrate.

To be released globally via Audible on March 15 (and now available for pre-order), Quidditch Through the Ages was written by Kennilworthy Whisp (a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling) and was originally released in written form in 2001. In the audio-book version, the BAFTA-nominated actor channels his "inner witch" -- using various voices and accents as he reads through the book, with a highlight said to be his narration of the diary entries of Gertie Keddle on the early days of Quidditch. Likewise, "Your chin may wobble as Andrew narrates the plight of the unfortunate Golden Snidge," according to the announcement from Pottermore.

Also included in the audio book will be extra bonus content in the form of a Quidditch match commentary by Ginny Potter, voiced by Imogen Church, and Rita Skeeter, voiced by Annette Badland, as they analyze the players' tactics and offer up gossip about the game's celebrity spectators. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the charities Comic Relief and Lumos.
