Audiobook narrator

Jim Dale (born 15 August, 1935 in Rothwell, Northamptonshire as James Smith) is the reader/performer of the US versions of the audio book editions of all seven volumes of the Harry Potter novels. He also narrated the bonus features on the DVD editions of the first four Harry Potter films. He is also an accomplished actor, singer, and songwriter.

He set a world record when he used 125 different voices in the recording of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a record which he broke when he used 134 different voices in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a record he shares with Stephen Fry, who narrates the UK versions of the Harry Potter audio books. His readings of Goblet of Fire and Deathly Hallows both won Grammy Awards in 2000 and 2008, respectively.
