On Pottermore, J.K. Rowling revealed the first photos of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s” Granger-Weasley family, including Paul Thornley as Ron Weasley, Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger and Cherrelle Skeete as their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley.
“It’s 19 years later when the play begins,” explained Thornley. “Ron is married to Hermione Granger and they’re now the Granger-Weasleys. Our magnificent daughter Rose Granger-Weasley is about to start at Hogwarts, which is obviously a big day for everyone.”
Of her character, Skeete shared, “Rose is ambitious — obviously her mum is Hermione, so she’s got a lot to live up to. I think they’re quite similar in the fact they put a lot of pressure on themselves. And she just wants to do the right thing.”
“Rose is like her mother, but more secure, more grounded. She was born to wizards and knows her place in the world. Cherrelle plays her perfectly: bossy but deeply lovable,” added Rowling.
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.
