While we already met Harry, Ron and Hermione, played by amie Parker, Noma Dumezweni and Paul Thornley in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage show, we now get to meet the whole cast as rehearsals have begun.

So now we have an official image of the full cast along with J.K. Rowling, writer Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany, plus the play’s production team

The cast is: 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, Tom Mackley, Barry McCarthy, Sandy McDade, Andrew McDonald, 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.

We have no idea who is playing what in the show, sadly, so we can’t offer any more info on that part, sadly.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and focuses on Harry, now working for the Ministry of Magic, and his youngest son, Albus Severus Potter.

The play opens in London on July 30, and the Special Rehearsal Edition of the script book will be released on July 31, Harry’s birthday.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
