This is the first time fans have seen actor Jamie Parker with Harry's famous lightning shape scar and his round glasses. Talking about Jamie, JK Rowling said: "He simply is Harry now. There's a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right."

Ginny Potter is played by Poppy Miller, and JK Rowling said: "I think a lot of people would like to have Poppy's Ginny for a mother. Kind and cool, exactly as I imagined her."

Albus Severus Potter is being played by actor Sam Clemmett, but JK Rowling is keeping his role very secret: "There's much I could say about Sam as Albus, but we'd be into spoiler territory so quickly I'll just say we couldn't have cast better." He is pictured wearing plain dark robes, without hinting at which house he is sorted into.

Noma Dumezweni plays the part of Hermione. Talking about the part, JK Rowling said: "I saw Noma workshop the part and when [director] John Tiffany told me he'd cast her, I was overjoyed. She gets Hermione inside out."

According to JK Rowling, Ron, played by Paul Thornley, is still pretty much the same. She said: "Ron in his forties isn't very different from Ron in his teens, except that his feet hurt a bit more. Paul's so funny and brilliant in the role."

Cherrelle Skeete is excited about her role as Rose Granger-Weasley, saying: "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."

In the final cast photos, we see Harry's school nemesis Draco Malfoy. He now has a son, Scorpio, starting his first year of Hogwarts along with Albus and Rose.

Alex Price is playing the adult Draco, who seems to be following Malfoy tradition by growing his hair long like his father Lucius. He says that being part of such a huge production is "intimidating, a little scary, but also very exciting", and that the play's writer has "taken the story into a great place 19 years later, particularly for Draco".

Irish actor Anthony Boyle is playing the part of Scorpius. He said that bleaching his hair the trademark Malfoy blonde was a "game changer" for him getting into the role. "As soon as I saw it, it was like, 'OK, I'm playing Scorpius Malfoy - this is real now.'"
