Ron and Hermione, the final two of our favorite trio, and their daughters Rose were revealed today on Pottermore. This look is from Harry Potter and the Curse Child, the eighth story in the Harry Potter saga and the upcoming stage play. The story picks up right after the epilogue of Deathly Hallows, which is 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts and the death of Lord Voldemort.
Paul Thornley and Noma Dumezweni smile proudly at the camera in their first shots as Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. It should be noted that Hermione kept her last name even though she did marry Ron. Their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley beams as well - their other child, Hugo, has not yet been revealed. It is unknown whether or not he will be in the play because he won't be of age for Hogwarts.
The first look came with some quotes from J.K. Rowling and the actors about the characters.
Skeete talked more about Rose, and it looks like she is a mixture of her parents: "Rose is ambitious, obviously her mum is Hermione so she’s got a lot to live up to. I think they’re quite similar in the fact they put a lot of pressure on themselves. And she just wants to do the right thing.”
J.K. Rowling continues that line of thought: “Rose is like her mother, but more secure, more grounded. She was born to wizards and knows her place in the world. Cherrelle plays her perfectly: bossy but deeply lovable.”
Rowling has always been in support for Thornley and Dumezweni, particularly Dumezweni as Hermione after she faced some backlash. She said, “I saw Noma workshop the part and when John Tiffany told me he’d cast her, I was overjoyed. She gets Hermione inside out.”
As for Ron, “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,” Rowling commented. The wardrobe 21qwqerdepartment also made sure to keep Ron casual, the goal was to make it so that he looked like he didn't care what he wore.
There will be one final reveal of two more wizarding characters scheduled for Wednesday. There are a few different characters this could be, including Luna and Neville, or perhaps Draco Malfoy and his son Scorpius.
