Any Andrew Garfield performance is to be cherished – the British actor never fails to deliver, bringing emotion and commitment every single time. And his next role will be a different kind of expression than we’re used to from the star. He’s leading the impeccable voice cast of Audible’s new audio drama production of George Orwell’s dystopian classic 1984, playing the role of Winston Smith as he navigates the repressive society governed by Big Brother. Empire has an exclusive early peek at the audio drama, with a clip that sees Winston being confronted by the terror that awaits those going into Room 101. Give it a listen here:

Beyond Garfield’s Winston, you also heard Romesh Ranganathan as Parsons, with Cynthia Erivo as Winston’s romantic counterpart Julia. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the cast here – also in the production you’ll find Tom Hardy as the terrifying voice of Big Brother, Andrew Scott as O’Brien, and What We Do In The Shadows favourite Natasia Demetriou as Mrs Parsons. The drama is written by Joe White and directed by Destiny Ekaragha (who helmed multiple episodes of The End Of The F***ing World) with a Dolby Atmos mix. All that, and it also features an original score from Muse frontman Matt Bellamy (who’s often referenced 1984 in his songs), working alongside composer Ilan Eshkeri.

Listen to the full audio drama of George Orwell’s 1984 when it arrives on Audible from 4 April 2024 – a date precisely four decades after the first diary entry from Winston in Orwell’s original novel.
