   Rowling supports Dumezweni casting0 Comments

In a new interview with The Observer, J. K. Rowling once again speaks of her anger at attacks on casting a black Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

  Accio Quote:
“With my experience of social media, I thought that idiots were going to idiot,” she said in an interview with the Observer. “But what can you say? That’s the way the world is. Noma was chosen because she was the best actress for the job.”

While the vast majority of people responded positively to the casting decision, Rowling said: “I had a bunch of racists telling me that because Hermione ‘turned white’ – that is, lost colour from her face after a shock – that she must be a white woman, which I have a great deal of difficulty with. But I decided not to get too agitated about it and simply state quite firmly that Hermione can be a black woman with my absolute blessing and enthusiasm.”

   Gambon responds to "Cursed Child" casting0 Comments

The Radio Times is reporting that Sir Michael Gambon recently spoke at the Oxford Students’ Union.

During his speech he responded to the 'debate' relating to casting a black Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre show.

  Accio Quote:
Asked by a student for his view on the controversy surrounding Dumezweni's casting, he replied, "It doesn't matter what colour you are, does it? It doesn't make a difference if you're a black actress or a white actress.

"You'd forget it in five minutes, wouldn't you? When the tabs go up on a play, and the person who's in it starts talking, you soon forget about it. It doesn't matter what colour they are, for God's sake."
