Starting May 24th, we can expect to see some new faces at the Palace Theatre in London. The new cast photos of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ have been released…and we couldn’t be more excited.
We can’t imagine anyone taking the place of the amazing actors who played the original troupe, the new cast looks ready to take on the wizarding world. While Albus has clearly inherited his grandmother’s kind eyes, Draco’s son shares his father’s conniving looks, and Hermione looks strong and wise (a requirement for anyone who dares to take on her personality).
The company even shared a behind-the-scenes video of the photoshoot, where the cast discusses the buzz surrounding the play. Jamie Glover, who will now play Harry Potter, says excitedly, “It’s a big outfit to step into. But I’m very honored that I am. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.” And who could deny that? Playing any member of the beloved franchise is a serious role to take on, but I have a feeling we won’t be disappointed with the new additions.
Here, see for yourself:
