Looking good, Ron! It’s time to meet the NEW Harry Potter actors

Well, the years have gone by fast!

Harry Potter , Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are all coming back for the next instalment of Harry Potter mania – the new screenplay in London's West End.

But they look quite a bit different from their movie counterparts – let's just say Ron has a receding hairline and they're all a tad bit older than we imagined. 

Yep, Harry will be played by 36-year-old Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley has been honoured the part of Ron Weasley. 

In the play, Ron is married to Hermione, who is played by 45-year-old Noma Dumezweni.

The new dynamic trio will star in Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which has already sold more than a quarter of a million tickets, despite not debuting until May 2016. 

The play is in hot demand, with our beloved J.K. Rowling devising the story, John Tiffany directing the cast and Sonia Friedman producing the play.

Sonia said that while the show won't be a high-tech production, they will have special effects experts on hand – as well as an illusionist. "There will be magic," she promised.
