Oscar winner, Olivia Colman reads the 7th chapter from the Philosopher’s Stone

The actress Olivia Colman, who received the Best Actress Oscar for her role in The Favorite (2018), joins the project in which stars read chapters from The Philosopher’s Stone during the COVID-19 quarantine.

The main narrator, Olivia Colman, is joined by the actor Jonathan Van Ness (Queer Eye) and the comedian Kate McKinnon to read the chapter The Sorting Hat, when Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and other first-years arrive at Hogwarts and are sorted into their houses.

The videos are part of the project Harry Potter at Home, which gathers themed activities to entertain fans during the COVID-19 quarantine.

The reading project will also count with the presence of other actors from the Wizarding World, such as Claudia Kim (Nagini), and international celebrities, like the actress Dakota Fanning (from the Twilight saga) and the ex-soccer player David Beckham.
