“Cursed Child” Finds Its Scorpius Malfoy!
Exciting! We now know who will be playing the character of Scorpius Malfoy in the upcoming stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. According to the UK casting website Spotlight, British actor Anthony Boyle will be taking on the role of Draco Malfoy and Astoria Greengrass’s son. His previous theater credits include Herons at the Lyric Theatre Belfast and East Belfast Boy (which he co-wrote) at Ballymac Friendship Centre.
Back in December, the casting of Jamie Parker, Paul Thornley, and Noma Dumezweni as an adult Harry, Ron, and Hermione was announced to the world. Then, last week, the full cast and crew was finally revealed, but fans were left in the dark as to who the new actors would be portraying on stage. Hopefully it won’t be too long now before we find out whom the rest of the cast will be playing!
What do you make of Boyle’s casting? Are you excited to see Cursed Child when it opens in London this summer? Let us know your thoughts!
