It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for! The third year of Cursed Child on Broadway has been announced… minus one very key character – what could it mean?! (UPDATE: See the bottom of this article for answers on the mystery actor!)

The Cursed Child cast came together for a role call today, led by Gryffindor James Snyder, who we’re happy to hear will be continuing his role as Harry for another year!

In the video, he gets some help from Hermione in casting Silencio over the new cast–Jenny Jules (another Gryffindor) will also be continuing her role, along with Nadia Brown (Hufflepuff) as Rose Granger-Weasley and Diane Davis (Ravenclaw) as Ginny Potter.

New cast members include Bradley Dalton Richards, a Slytherin sun, Gryffindor rising, which contradicts with a Ravenclaw moon (we love that), as Scorpius Malfoy, James Romney, a ‘proud Ravenclaw’, and another ‘very big Harry Potter fan’, just like James’s forerunner, Nicholas Podany, as Albus Severus Potter and Aaron Bartz, a Hufflepuff, as Draco Malfoy.

One major character yet to be announced is Ron Weasley! He failed to turn up for role call, and you hear the voice of the person playing Ron in the video below — can you work out who the familiar voice belongs to? We’re anxious to know!

Stay posted for updates on rehearsals (which started recently), and more.

Read coverage from the Cursed Child panel at BroadwayCon, and our visit to the show, here, and look out for our coverage of House Pride nights, beginning February 13 and 14 with Hufflepuff night!

UPDATE: 1:20pm EST:

Paul Thornley, Cursed Child’s original Ron Weasley on the West End and Broadway, will return to his role on Broadway for Year 3! His voice could be heard as Ludo Bagman since his departure from the show, but we’re looking forward to welcoming him back as Ron Weasley. Look out for a video announcement coming to the Cursed Child Facebook page at 3pm EST!
