Oscars and Audio Books – Part 3
1) You can’t talk about actors who narrate without mentioning Kenneth Branagh. He’s reknowned for his love to Shakespearean works in movies and stage, and so its not surprising he’s done HamletÂ andÂ Romeo and Juliet, but then he’s also lent his voice to the Chronicles of Narnia Adult Box Set. Its amazing the man has time for anything else!
2) Famous for playing the villan, it was kind of odd to find out that Jeremy Irons has narrated one of the most beloved kids books of all time – James and the Giant Peach. He’s also narrated The Alchemist and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita.
3) Like Mr. Irons, Alan Rickman falls into the category of “Actors Who Have Been Villans in Die Hard Movies” and like Mr. Branagh, he also falls into the category of “Actors Who Have Been Villans in Harry Potter Movies”. Thus, he’s in good company with hisÂ narration ofÂ The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy.
Happy Oscar Night, Simply Audiobooks readers!
