First Look at the Granger-Weasley Family of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Jack Thorne's two-part sequel to the Harry Potter series will open in London's West End.

Yesterday, the London production of the two-part play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child released the first set of cast portraits, featuring the Potter family. Today, we've got the second installment of photos, offering a first glimpse at Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley), Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni), and their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley (Cherrelle Skeete).

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is described as follows: "It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."
