Noma Dumezweni recently spoke to the BBC about moving the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre show over to the US and seeing someone else taking over her role in the UK as Hermione Granger.
I went to see the new London cast, with Rakie Ayola playing Hermione, and I loved it. I went, ‘Oh my God, they’re doing their own thing’, and within that there were little changes, and I thought, yes, that makes sense. And I said to Rakie, ‘I’m totally stealing some of your stuff because I really enjoy what you do’. But that’s the highest compliment I can give her, as an actress to another actress; I love what she did.
