LOOK: Draco, Scorpius Malfoy in new ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ photos
Here's a look at two generations of Malfoys in character in 'The Cursed Child'

MANILA, Philippines – With Voldemort’s defeat, Draco was an unwitting instrument to the Dark Lord’s fall, and here he is, 19 years later, with his own son Scorpius.

After photos of the Potters and the Granger-Weasleys in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have been unveiled, here’s how these two generations of Malfoys look like in the play.

Alex Price plays the elder Malfoy, Draco – also the former nemesis of Harry Potter. He still looks regal, being the proud scion of a wealthy wizarding family.

Anthony Boyle, meanwhile, plays his son Scorpius. JK Rowling says that he might be popular with the ladies at Hogwarts. “I’ve got a feeling Scorpius is going to do nothing to turn girls off the Malfoy men,” she said in a Pottermore news release.

Alex also said of taking on such a role in an iconic saga: “The world outside has been brilliantly marshalled and been kept away from us by our producers. It’s only slowly starting to rear its head now and it’s intimidating, a little scary, but also very exciting because Jack [Thorne] is such a brilliant writer and he’s taken the story into a great place 19 years later, particularly for Draco.”

Anthony added: “You can just feel the excitement in the building. We’ve been in the Palace Theatre for over four weeks now which is where we can do all the things you couldn’t do in the rehearsal room. We just can’t wait to show it to everyone.”

The Cursed Child will premiere at the Palace Theater in London’s West End in July; however, previews will start from June 7.

The official synopsis from Pottermore reads: “While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

The Cursed Child is one production to be presented in two parts, “intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings,” according to its website. – Rappler.com
