The full cast list for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been revealed — and it’s quite a lengthy roll call, with 42 actors including Noma Dumezweni as Hermione, Jamie Parker as Harry and Paul Thornley as Ron.

The stage production, which follows Harry’s son Albus Severus, will debut in the West End later this year. 

The image below shows the cast posing with the play’s writers JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, just before the first read-through of the script.

True to the spirit of Hogwarts, the picture is rather like a school photo, with a list of names going row by row.

10 points to whoever can spot Rowling first!
