Cast Photos of New ‘Harry Potter’ Show Black Hermione

With the first preview of J.K. Rowling’s play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two” just a week away, Pottermore has shared character portraits of a grown-up Ron (Paul Thornley) and Hermione (Noma Dumezweni), along with their daughter Rose (Cherrelle Skeete), as they will appear in the play.

Back in December, it was announced that the role of Hermione Granger would be played by Swaziland-born actress Noma Dumezweni, to mixed reactions.

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to defend the casting decision, saying the character’s skin color had never been specified in the books.
