Michael Sheen is narrating the audiobook version of La Belle Sauvage, which will be released later this year.
It turns out Michael Sheen is a big HDM fan! He said “The His Dark Materials trilogy had a profound effect on me…. It was a true privilege to be asked to record La Belle Sauvage, the first book of this new work. It was genuinely one of the most thrilling and enjoyable experiences I’ve had”
Pullman also said he’d long admired Michael Sheen and was pleased that he was willing to read the audiobooks.
