“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Tokyo Full Cast Announced

The opening date of the Japanese production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is less than six months away, and we now have our first casting information for the play.

Unlike other productions, Cursed Child Tokyo has revealed multiple cast members for each of the principal characters who will take turns in the roles. After a Twitter quiz throughout January for followers to piece together clues on who would be taking on the role of the Boy Who Lived, the actors playing the role of Harry were revealed to be Tatsuya Fujiwara, Kanji Ishimaru, and Osamu Mukai.

 

 

Shortly after, it was announced that Aoi Nakabeppu and Sagiri Seina would be taking on the role of Hermione Granger.

 

 

This was followed by the announcement of Masahiro Ehara and Hayata Tateyama as Ron Weasley.

 

 

Taking on the role of Draco Malfoy will be Shinya Matsuda and Shuntaro Miyao, while Ginny Potter will be played by Erica Mabuchi and Yuri Shirahane.

 

 

 

Of course, a Cursed Child casting announcement wouldn’t be complete without a new generation of wizards. Taking on the role of Albus Potter will be Haru Fujita and Kohei Fukuyama, while Sodai Kadota and Rio Saito will portray Scorpius Malfoy.

 

 

 

Further casting announcements have been listed on the Tokyo production’s website to complete the full cast. Among them are Natsumi Hashimoto, who will play Rose Granger-Weasley, and Sayuri Houi and Karen Iwata, who will both play Delphi. Rounding up the cast list are Ikue Sakakibara and Hitomi Takahashi (both playing Professor McGonagall), Karen Miyama (Moaning Myrtle), Masami Koba (Sorting Hat), Kiichi Fukui (Amos Diggory), Mio Ando, Nobuaki Anraku, Kazuma Chiba, Tomomi Hanzawa, Kunihiro Kawabe, Toshiki Komatsu, Minako Maehigashi, Misaho, Kei Ohgi, Masahiro Ojiri, Yuma Okabe, Orie, Hisashi Otake, Keiko Ouchi, Momoka Satake, Yudai Sato, Masashi Shinohara, Shogo Suzuki, Ryo Taguchi, Ayano Tanaka, Takamori Teuchi, Seita Ueno, Masato Watanabe, Natsuko Yakumaru, and Chiho Yokoyama.

The Tokyo production of Cursed Child will be a one-part play, meaning that, as of the reimagining of the Melbourne production in May 2022, London and Germany will be the only locations in which fans can watch a two-part production.

Tickets for previews for Tokyo will be available to purchase on Wednesday, February 23, and Thursday, February 24 only. The show will celebrate its official opening on July 8.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
