‘Coming into the Cursed Child family in year three has been incredibly exciting,’ Jamie Ballard said in this new interview, as he starts his role as Harry Potter in the West End. ‘The cast, crew, the whole team behind it, have been so unbelievably welcoming and warm.’
Jamie is the third Harry to join the West End production, following on from Jamie Parker (now currently playing the role on Broadway) and Jamie Glover. Hear more about what Jamie had to say about taking on one of the world’s most famous fictional characters, and some special behind-the-scenes glimpses of how his costume is put together. (Yes, it even involves painting on his old ‘I must not tell lies’ scar from Professor Umbridge.)
