Continuing the lead-up to the first preview of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," author J.K. Rowling has unveiled portraits of a now-adult Draco Malfoy with his son.
Alex Price ("Doctor Who," "Penny Dreadful") appears in the eagerly anticipated stage production as Harry's former Hogwarts rival, while Anthony Boyle is his son Scorpius Malfoy. "‘I love Draco and Scorpius," Rowling said, "they actually look related!"
The author notes that while Scorpius will wear the familiar Hogwarts uniform, it won't be without a twist. "He’s a Malfoy," she said, "so his clothes should be really expensive but quite constraining to make him feel a bit awkward."
Written by Rowling and Jack Thorne, “Cursed Child” picks up just after the epilogue of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” where an adult Harry waves off his children at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” opens July 30 at the Palace Theatre in London.
