A great tweet often takes on a life of its own after it goes out into the open, but as fun as they are to read, it’s multitudes better to hear them read to you.

That treat comes in the form of actor Jonathan Pryce, who people will recognize as Game of Thrones’ High Sparrow. Not only is he great at outsmarting Cersei (well, until she burned him for it), he’s an acclaimed Shakespearean actor who can breathe life into the most mundane statements. Which is how he found himself reading celebrity tweets in a collaboration with Audible.

Some of his American fans might not recognize some of the celebrities whose tweets he reenacts, but he embodies the essence of what’s tweeted out by the likes of Kanye West, Simon Cowell, and Harry Styles.

And we’ll never see Ed Balls the same way again—at least until next year.
