The British footballer joined the Harry Potter at home initiative, in which celebrities quarantined read excerpts from books about the young wizard. Such videos have already been recorded by Daniel Radcliffe, Dakota Fanning and Eddie Redmayne. 

Beckham also took on Scottish actor David Tennant as his partner, who played the role of Barty Crouch Jr. in the fourth part of The Potter. Together they read Chapter 11 of the first Potter book, which describes a Quidditch match.

“I am very pleased to be part of this wonderful project and share the magic of Harry Potter with fans around the world, including my daughter Harper. With the ball, it was always easier for me than with a book at school, but I tried my best for my children, ” said David.
