Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,Noma Dumezweni is black.
Now as we all know, Emma Watson, an all around perfect Hermione, is not black... so fans have taken to the internet to discuss, argue, and even ask J.K. Rowling herself what she thinks about this "radical" casting.
This is her response.
Like, fuck yes!!
The idea of a black Hermione really isn't that radical;
As a white girl, it was easy for me to see myself in her. To aspire to be her.
Because in this day and age, we girls need all the role models we can get and her (Hermione's) ability to be a role model to all after all these years is just inspiring.
