Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Opens In London And The Full Cast Has Been Revealed

If you’re a die-hard Harry Potter fan then you’ll be excited to hear that The Cursed Child is opening in London this week.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It’s the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

Set 19 years later, our favourite wizards are all grown up with families of their own. The synopsis of the play reads like this:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Awesome, right? You know what’s even better- the official photos that have been released of the actors who will play the roles of Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron and their families. We’ve compiled a gallery below:

Harry is being played by Jamie Parker and his wife Ginny will be played by Poppy Miller (whose previous stage productions include Macbeth and Twelfth Night). Their son Albus Severus Potter, the ‘cursed child’, will be played by Sam Clemmett (Lord of the Flies, Wendy and Peter Pan).

The Granger-Weasley Family

I love the fact that this family has blended their surnames together! How very progressive of them.

“It’s 19 years later when the play begins,” said Paul Thornley, who plays Ron Weasley. ‘“Ron is married to Hermione Granger and they’re now the Granger-Weasleys. Our magnificent daughter Rose Granger-Weasley is about to start at Hogwarts, which is obviously a big day for everyone.”

Ron and Hermione’s daughter Rose is played by Cherrelle Skeete and apparently takes after her mum.

“Rose is ambitious, obviously her mum is Hermione so she’s got a lot to live up to,” said Cherrelle. “I think they’re quite similar in the fact they put a lot of pressure on themselves. And she just wants to do the right thing.”
