Harry Potter and the Cursed Child full cast revealed

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child CastThe 42-member ensemble for the upcoming stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has just been announced.

According to a report on Entertainment Weekly, oiling the previously announced cast members who will be playing Harry Potter (Jamie Parker), Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley), and Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni) are an assortment of actors young and old whose specific roles have not yet been revealed. So far, we are only certain of the main trio while everyone else in the cast may be playing other familiar characters. It is possible to speculate that some of them may be members of the next generation of young wizards because of their age, but there are also quite a number of adults in the cast.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is considered the eighth Harry Potter story, a creation of J.K. Rowling, director John Tiffany, and writer Jack Thorne. As previously reported, the play will be set some years after the conclusion of the last book and will also focus on the struggles of Harry Potter’s son, Albus Severus. The size of this cast suggests that the scope and scale of the two-part play will be a truly epic one. This adventure is sure to be a very magical experience.
