If you've got any long flights or cross-country spring break road trips in your future, we've got a thoroughly enjoyable way for you to fill those long, quiet hours...and if you don't, you might want to plan one, the better to enjoy the delicious Daniel Sharman as he reads one of your favorite books aloud. The "Teen Wolf" star has been officially tapped to record the audiobook of Cassandra Clare's "Clockwork Princess"...and we are officially planning to fall asleep on the night of its release to the dulcet lullaby of fantastical steampunk fiction being read by a man with the world's chiseled-est cheekbones. Sweet dreams, indeed!
Daniel's selection as audiobook narrator got the thumbs-up from none other than Cassandra herself, as she was the one who thought he'd be perfect for the job.
"During the casting process for the 'Mortal Instruments' movie, the casting director and I talked about probably every young actor in Hollywood. Daniel Sharman had just come off doing 'Immortals,' and I remember we talked about him as a an actor who had huge talent and promise. When we were looking for someone who could read the 'Clockwork Princess' audiobook, I thought of him because he seemed like someone who could capture the parts of the narrative that require vulnerability as well as the ones that require a great grasp of action."
Yes! What she said! Plus, y'know, the cheekbones. Always the cheekbones.
"Clockwork Princess" is the final installment of Cassandra's "Infernal Devices" series, which follows Victorian teen Tessa and her Shadowhunter allies Will and Jem. The audiobook will be available March 19.
