Over the past few days, we've gotten our first look at iconic Harry Potter characters as played by new actors in the upcoming stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which the first audiences will get to see in previews starting June 7. Back in February, the full cast was announced, but aside from the main trio of Jamie Parker (Harry Potter), Noma Dumezweni (Hermione Granger) and Paul Thornley (Ron Weasley), it was never confirmed who the other cast members are playing, until these reveals started earlier this week.

Draco (Alex Price) and Scorpius (Anthony Boyle) both sport the trademark blonde hair, with the elder Malfoy's ponytail and goatee combo coming across as sinister and intimidating. Our first look at the Malfoys follows earlier reveals of Harry and family and the Granger-Weasley clan. Cursed Child, though written for the stage, is considered the eighth official story
