Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opened less than a week ago, and two more Harry Potter film stars have already ventured over to the Palace Theatre in London to see the magic. Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) and Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) snapped pics with the cast Wednesday (August 3).
Their former costar Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) went during the play’s previews and described the show as “even more beautiful than the films.” Based on Wright and Carter’s big smiles, it’s probably safe to assume they felt the same way.
Wright poses with Rosemary Annabella (who played various characters), Poppy Miller (Ginny Potter), and Cherrelle Skeete (Rose Granger-Weasley, Young Hermione).

This is A+ casting, guys. Notice Carter photobombing in the background.
Pink Is The New (Bellatrix) Black
It’s strange seeing the evil Bellatrix smiling and not looking like she wants to shout “Crucio” at someone. Though her character isn’t in the play, Bellatrix is actually a central part of the story’s plot and twist.
