Honours List includes Jim Dale, Harry Potter
Jun 14, 2003
But not that Harry Potter
The Queen’s Birthday Honours List, which was announced today, includes two names familiar to fans of JK Rowling’s series: Jim Dale, who does the hundreds of voices in the U.S. audio version, was awarded an M.B.E., and a Department for International Development natural resources and rural livelihoods advisor in Malawi named Harry Potter was awarded an O.B.E.
The honors are bestowed by Queen Elizabeth II but largely selected by the government.
