In the run-up to the first previews of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, numerous photos of the cast members in costume have been released.

First of all, we got to have a look at the titular character with his family. The following day, photos of Paul Thornley and Noma Dumezweni as Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger respectively were released.

Today, we get our first look at Draco Malfoy and his child, Scorpius, played by Alex Price and Anthony Boyle, both with bleached white hair.

Speaking about the characters, author JK Rowling said: “I love Draco and Scorpius – they actually look related!” She added: “I've got a feeling Scorpius is going to do nothing to turn girls off the Malfoy men.”

The story of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be told in two parts, the scripts of both soon to be made available in book form. The story is not a prequel but is set 19 years after the events of The Deathly Hallows - Read everything we know about the play, here.
