   Parker and Clemmett discuss "Cursed Child"0 Comments

Time Out London recently spoke to Jamie Parker (Harry Potter) and son Sam Clemmett (Albus Potter).


  Accio Quote:
Parker assures me it will be possible to understand what’s going on even if you’ve not read the books or seen the films. ‘It’s completely coherent without former knowledge,’ he says. ‘You don’t have to read seven books in order to see this play. Though there are lots of presents in the script if you have.’



  Accio Quote:
‘Given the potential for tight control over something that’s so personal and such a gigantic success,’ says Parker, ‘it never fails to amaze me the amount of generosity Joanne [Rowling> has got in terms of sharing this.’

   Parker on becoming Harry Potter0 Comments

The Stage recently interviewed Jamie Parker (Harry Potter) in relation to taking on such a well-renowned role.


  Accio Quote:
We’re still working during the day and performing at night. But our hours with the creative team are starting to lessen off as we get into a full performance schedule of eight shows a week. The company is feeling really good – Steven [Hoggett, the movement director> has prepped us properly to be in the right physical shape. Working with him, you’ve got to be in shape. And John [Tiffany, the director> has kept up our spirits with his relentless positivity and trust in his company.



  Accio Quote:
It’s been great now to immerse myself in it – I’ve gone through all of them several times now, and I’m going to go through them again. I won’t stop making notes, and every day I am finding out exactly how detailed Jack [Thorne, the playwright> and John’s work on it has been with Jo [JK Rowling>. In any decent play there’s an unspoken script going on underneath the actual script – like Woody Allen’s subtitles, whether they’re serious or funny – and that’s absolutely the case here. The play is perfectly clear to anyone who doesn’t know anything about Harry Potter – it’s just a very good play on that level. But for those who are immersed in it, there are Easter eggs hidden in every scene. There’s a lot that goes unspoken, and that’s fertile ground for being able to talk to each other onstage.

   Video: Parker discusses playing Harry Potter0 Comments

Pottermore has conducted a video interview with Jamie Parker.

Parker plays Harry Potter in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre play.




  Accio Quote:
On portraying Harry as an adult, Jamie mused: ‘To me it is actually quite interesting to hit roundabout the 40 mark of your life, and consider how things affected you profoundly when you were 11 going on 17, and how that is going to come into play into your life as a dad. That’s where the play gets juicy for me.’
