‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ cast switch-over happened today – see the new actors!


We’re sad to say farewell to the original cast of the U.K.-based Harry Potter and the Cursed Child production, but we’re also happy to celebrate today’s milestone: the day the new cast takes over!

The new cast includes:

  • Jamie Glover as Harry Potter
  • Emma Lowndes as Ginny Potter
  • Theo Ancient as Albus Potter
  • Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley
  • Rakie Ayola as Hermione Granger
  • Helen Aluko as Rose Granger-Weasley
  • James Howard as Draco Malfoy
  • Samuel Blenkin as Scorpius Malfoy

Official in-character cast photos were recently released, showing the actors’ promise in each of their respective roles:

Unfortunately, there’s no indication that the original cast’s performance was filmed for an eventually DVD/Blu-ray release, but we can hold out hope. For those of us on the other side of the pond, we’ll be able to see a production of Cursed Child on Broadway some time in 2018!
