Gwendoline Christie does audio for Brian Selznick novel


The latest adventure for “Game of Thrones” actress Gwendoline Christie is the audiobook for one of publishing’s most imaginativ­e storytelle­rs, Brian Selznick.

Selznick’s “Kaleidosco­pe,” the latest work from the author of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” comes out Sept. 21 in hardcover, ebook and audio, which will feature Christie’s narration and music from Obie winner Robert Een. Scholastic is billing the book as “a multi-layered and spellbindi­ng story about love, loss and friendship.”

Christie added her own superlativ­es Thursday, saying in a statement that she found the book “captivatin­g, wildly imaginativ­e and thrillingl­y phantasmag­orical.”

“Let him gently take you by the hand on this sensitive multilayer­ed journey through time, space, and emotion. Brian makes us realize the magic in simply being human,” said Christie, also known for her roles in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” She is scheduled to appear, as Lucifer, in the Netflix series “Sandman,” based on the Neil Gaiman comic book.
