Harry Potter fans around the world are waiting with baited breath for news on the next instalment of the boy wizard’s adventures, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Thankfully, J.K Rowling has thrown off the invisibility cloak covering the highly anticipated play, finally revealing images of what the stage versions of Harry, Ginny and their youngest son, Albus Severus Potter, will look like.

Not just that, but according to the BBC, actor Sam Clemmett, who plays Albus has revealed what most of us guessed – that the ‘cursed child’ moniker refers to himself.

Excitingly, actress Poppy Miller has been announced to be taking on the role of fiery red-haired and expert quidditch player, Ginny Potter.

The fascinating portraits give us our first glimpse of Jamie Parker as the titular boy-turned-man wizard Harry Potter,  with the iconic lightning-shaped scar on his forehead.

Author JK Rowling said about Jamie’s performance:”He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right.”

Meanwhile, Parker himself added:

It’s a unique gig in the sense that you have seven volumes of back story that you get to bring on with you. And we were all very keen to make sure that the first time you see Harry it just feels right.

J.K Rowling also teased Clemmett’s portrayal of Albus, saying:

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.

Unfortunately, despite the last chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows teasing that Albus may find himself in Slytherin, the photos offer no clues as to which house he’ll end up in.

Instead, Albus wears a dark Hogwarts robes with no visible house markings, although speculation is rife that he may be sorted into the supposedly evil house.
