Featured in the portraits are Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley), Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni), and their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley (Cherrelle Skeete). Paul Thornley spoke about the state of the Granger-Weasleys when Cursed Child begins.

‘It’s 19 years later when the play begins. 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."

The smallest Granger-Weasley, Cherrelle Skeete, told Pottermore how she's dealing with the anticipated project, saying: "I can’t think about how big it is or I’ll just faint. Putting on my uniform, ready to go to Hogwarts, and seeing everyone else in their uniform was exciting. I’ve been looking at it every day in the wardrobe department, waiting for the day I can get on the Hogwarts Express." It isn't the first project of this scale she's acted in, however, as she also appeared in The Lion King, as well as Wind in the Willows.

Cherrelle also spoke about the similarities between her and her mother, saying: "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." J.K. Rowling agreed with that take, adding: "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 loveable."

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part One debuts at the Palace Theatre London this July.

So awesome. If I happen to make my way to London sometime soon...
