Thanks to our partner site, Matthew-Lewis.com we can share that Matt has lent his voice to Alien: Out of the Shadows an Audible Original Drama set between the first two Alien films. Alien: Out of the Shadows was dramatised for audio by Dirk Maggs, from the novel by Tim Lebbon and stars Rutger Hauer, Matthew Lewis, Corey Johnson and Kathryn Drysdale. Two photos of Matthew in the studio can be viewed over at the Matthew-Lewis.com gallery.
It is available to download from 26th April at www.audible.co.uk/scream and will cost £21.49 to pre-order or can be downloaded FREE with a 30-day trial if you are new to audible.
Matthew Lewis (voicing Baxter) says of working on audio, “Audiobooks and dramas are a new medium for me, but luckily I was working with some true professionals who I could learn from; since its audio only, you have to squeeze as much emotion from every line as you can without overdoing it. I’m a huge fan of the Alien universe and the opportunity to be a part of that was very exciting – I love playing all kinds of different characters from different walks of life, and a seasoned bridge officer such as Baxter in a science fiction scenario was a completely new one for me too.”
