Rehearsals have officially begun on ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II' and Pottermore can now reveal the full cast.
56 creatives, actors and members of the production team came together this morning for the first time to be part of this amazing photo, right before the first read-through of the script.
Not only that, but Pottermore can also confirm exactly who will be joining Jamie Parker, Noma Dumezweni and Paul Thornley in the production’s 42-actor-strong ensemble.
Please welcome Nicola Alexis, Helen Aluko, Jeremy Ang Jones, Rosemary Annabella, Annabel Baldwin, Jack Bennett, Paul Bentall, Anthony Boyle, Zoe Brough, Sam Clemmett, Morag Cross, Cristina Fray, Rudi Goodman, Claudia Grant, James Howard, Christiana Hutchings, Lowri James, Chris Jarman, Martin Johnston, Bili Keogh, Chipo Kureya, James Le Lacheur, Helena Lymbery, Barry McCarthy, Sandy McDade, Andrew McDonald, Tom Mackley, Adam McNamara, Poppy Miller, Tom Milligan, Jack North, Alex Price, Stuart Ramsay, Nuno Silva, Cherrelle Skeete, Esther Smith, Nathaniel Smith, Dylan Standen and Joshua Wyatt… who make up the entire cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Among these names are seven child actors who will alternate between roles.
The unveiling of a brand new (not to mention huge) Harry Potter team, is a very special moment indeed. Looking at the sheer number of creative minds at work on this production, it’s safe to say that Harry, Ron and Hermione’s next adventure is in good hands.
And, in case any of you were wondering, Pottermore will reveal who some of the new cast members will be playing very soon…
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, directed by John Tiffany. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre this summer and is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.
