Now that’s a family resemblance!
Throughout the week, we’ve been getting first looks at the main cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child — the upcoming stage play that takes place 19 years after Deathly Hallows.
On Thursday, the final pair of principal characters was revealed to be the malevolent father-son duo Draco and Scorpius Malfoy!
Just off the tense picture alone, we can tell Draco (played by Alex Price) and Scorpius (Anthony Boyle) have the same uncomfortable relationship as Draco and his father Lucius. Those Malfoys really stick to tradition, huh?
J.K. Rowling commented on the spot-on casting of the Malfoys, noting Scorpius will have the same bad boy effect on the ladies as his father did. She said:
“I love Draco and Scorpius ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ they actually look related!├óΓé¼┬ª I’ve got a feeling Scorpius is going to do nothing to turn girls off the Malfoy men.”
Ch-ch-check out the Malfoy men (above) to see what you think of the casting!
