The Instagram account for the Australian production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have shared a wonderful photo of the original Draco Malfoy with his Australian and English adult – well now-more-grown-up – counterparts.
The pictures, which were taken in time for Dark Arts Month… which I’m assuming is Halloween, were uploaded to the Cursed Child social media pages yesterday. This means the pictures probably weren’t taken anytime in the last week or even in Australia… sorry. Nonetheless, it’s a fab photograph.
In the first piccie you have the English adult Malfoy played by the wonderful James Howard, then you have Felton, and finally our Aussie Malfoy Tom Wren. You might recognise Wren from Winners & Losers.
Fun fact: Tom Felton is 31-(thirty-one!!!!!!)-years-old now but I refuse to believe it. REFUSE.
Anywhoo, in the second pic you just have Felton and Wren.
The Australian production of Cursed Child recently shared a behind-the-scenes video of the team prepping for their iconic roles. The full cast includes Kiwi bloke Gareth Reeves as Harry Potter, the champ that is Gyton Grantley (Underbelly, House Husbands, perfect casting) as Ron Weasley, Paula Arundell as Hermione Granger, and Lucy Goleby as Ginny Weasley.
If you’re not too familiar with the play, it’s split up into two parts which means a) it’s real long and b) you literally have to watch it in two separate viewings. It’s up to you if you want to pull an all-dayer and spend a whole day in the Potterverse – which doesn’t sound like an awful way to spend your time – or you can spread it over how many days you wish.
Fortunately or unfortunately for you, the play will exclusively run at Melbourne‘s Princess Theatre from January 2019.
