1) At first, I thought it was cosplay (because of the link I followed to it and I'm so far removed from reality at the moment that most of this Harry Potter and the Cursed Child business has over my head.
Which, a few years ago, would have been absolute sacrilege in my household, but I digress).
2. Even though I thought it was cosplay, I was so still touched by it:
|I don't know who you are. But. I....I love you. |
*Voice breaks* So. Much.
I even bookmarked the damn thing.
3. J.K Rowling's opinion on the backlash can be summarised as thus:
"With my experience of social media, I thought that idiots were going to idiot. That's the way the world is. Noma was chosen because she was the best actress for the job," she said. "When [director] John [Tiffany] told me he'd cast her, I said, 'Oh, that's fabulous' because I'd seen her in a workshop and she was fabulous."

|Am I even allowed drinks in theatres? No? Right.|
Now to find someone to take me to this already sold out show...
P.S. No, I always mispronounce her name too.
