ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – The Walking Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln has traded in zombies for broomsticks in the anticipated audiobook version of Quidditch Through the Ages (published by Pottermore, and now available for purchase on Audible), which charts the magical game’s history, from its early origins in the medieval mists on Queerditch Marsh to the modern-day sport loved by so many wizard and Muggle families around the world.
Below, Lincoln tells EW about the new project, explains what finally drew him into the Harry Potter universe, and reveals his favorite character.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did you get involved in this project, and what drew you to it?
ANDREW LINCOLN: Most of my actor friends at some point over the last decade have been wizards, Mudbloods, and house-elves of one sort or another, and frankly I was beginning to take it personally. So when this invitation came along, I jumped at the chance. I love the world that J.K. Rowling has created and I was especially excited about Quidditch Through the Ages because of its added association with the charities Comic Relief and Lumos (Rowling’s international charity, which provides relief and resources to vulnerable children and young people around the world.)
