Have you ever watched a Quidditch scene in Harry Potter and thought, “This would be MUCH better if Rick from The Walking Dead was narrating?” Your bizarre fantasy’s about to come true.
The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln will be lending his vocal talents to the audiobook edition of the Harry Potter spinoff Quidditch Through the Ages. The actor will take a break from zombie apocalyptic misery (and Rick Grimes’ incredibly heavy southern accent) in lieu of detailing the ins and outs of the Wizarding World’s favorite sport.
The fictional volume details the history and strategies of Quidditch. In the HP universe, it’s written by renowned Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp and is “one of the most popular books in the Hogwarts School Library.” In our meager muggle ‘verse, Harry Potter author JK Rowling brought it to life in 2015 and donated proceeds to Comic Relief, a major British charity that helps children in need worldwide.
The audiobook of Quidditch Through the Ages drops March 15th and is available for pre-order now. 15 per cent of the proceeds will go to Comic Relief.
Meanwhile, Andrew Lincoln can be seen on The Walking Dead February 25 when its eighth season resumes.
