Not everyone was happy that a black actress Noma Dumezweni was cast as Hermione in the two-part play “ and the Cursed Child,” however, J.K. Rowling has expected that: “With my experience of social media, I thought that idiots were going to idiot,” Rowling told The Guardian. “That’s the way the world is.

“Noma was chosen because she was the best actress for the job,” she added. “When [director] John [Tiffany] told me he’d cast her, I said, ‘Oh, that’s fabulous’ because I’d seen her in a workshop and she was fabulous.”

They already cast a Black woman as Hermione and now Rose too. Look at this beautiful smile!


Sirius Black

His own name points out that he should have been cast as a black actor, Idris Elba, for instance.

Actually, Idris Elba received a lot of attention recently as The Daily Star reports that Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli and director Antoine Fuqua had a conversation in which Fuqua said “it is time” for a non-white actor to take on the iconic role and named Idris Elba as a reported frontrunner.

The Broadly staff made funny suggestions what other iconic characters Elba should play.
