‘It’s a unique gig in the sense that you have seven volumes of backstory that you get to bring on with you. And we were all very keen to make sure that the first time you see Harry it just feels right.’ Jamie Parker

Ron, Hermione and Rose Granger-Weasley

Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley), Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni) and Rose Granger-Weasley (Cherrelle Skeete)- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry’s two best friends, Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley) and Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni) along with their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley (Cherrelle Skeete).

Cherrelle Skeete as Rose Granger-Weasley

“Putting on my uniform, ready to go to Hogwarts, and seeing everyone else in their uniform was exciting. I’ve been looking at it every day in the wardrobe department, waiting for the day I can get on the Hogwarts Express.” –Cherrelle Skeete

Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni)

“Being in full costume for the first time was stunning, because I went “Ahhh there you are”.”-Noma Dumezweni

Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley)

“We wanted to find a jumper, that is definitely his favourite jumper, and that I think gets washed occasionally. He wants to essentially be comfortable at all time, hence comfortable cords, comfortable jumper, comfortable shoes. I don’t believe he’s a man who spends an awful lot of time shopping.”-Paul Thornley


Draco and Scorpius Malfoy

 Draco Scorpius

Draco (Alex Price) and Scorpius Malfoy (Anthony Boyle) will also feature in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.


“It was such a game changer. As soon as I saw it [his new blonde look], it was like “OK, I’m playing Scorpius Malfoy-this is real now”. That was such a big moment.”- Anthony Boyle


“The world outside has been brilliantly marshalled and been kept away from us by our producers. It’s only slowly starting to rear its head now and it’s intimidating, a little scary, but also very exciting because Jack is such a brilliant writer and he’s taken the story into a great place 19 years later, particularly for Draco.”- Alex Price
