Ben has joined the cast of Netflix’s ‘Shadow and Bone’, an 8 episode series based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Six of Crows’. Ben will play General Kirigan, the commander of a magical military elite in Bardugo’s fantasy world.
In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Ben has recorded an audio version of Oscar Wilde’s novel ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. The audiobook is set to be released on September 26th and is already available for pre-order on Google Play and Amazon.com. The official synopsis can be found below.
This Penguin Classic is performed by Ben Barnes, star of the film adaptation of Dorian Gray. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Robert Mighall.
Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.
