Hoorah for diversity!
Black Hermione Granger has literally broken the internet. For some reason, fans are strongly divided over the choice of casting Noma Dumezweni in the role of the older witch in Jk Rowling's upcoming stage play 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'. We agree with the author that the diversity should be celebrated, just as it has been every other time a black actor has been cast in a traditionally white role.
And it's not just theatre where ethnic fluidity has become commonplace; cinema is also catching up with the progression, despite many areas of Hollywood still tending to 'whitewash' their casting. Who cares if initial character descriptions don't match up with the modern interpretations? Adapting classic stories for today's audience is the best way to keep them relevent after all. Here's just a few examples of when black actors have nailed 'white' characters:

The author has been incredibly productive of late, but when she promised to unveil some new info about Dolores Umbridge and her life after The Final Battle, we definitely weren’t expecting this.

Strong rumours that the 49 year old author has completed a romance novel are untrue, and the wait for new material continues.
The internet has been ablaze in recent weeks about J. K. Rowling’s future writing projects, but she took to social media on Thursday to clear the air about her finishing a romance novel.
J. K. Rowling was forced to scotch rumours that she's finished a romance novel
A story had appeared in various newspapers that Rowling was ‘celebrating’ in a London bar having just handed in the so-called novel to her publishers on Monday. However, the 49 year old writer took to Twitter to say: "1) I haven't handed in ANY kid of novel to my publishers. I'm only half way through my current book. 2) It isn't a 'romantic' novel. And 3) (brace yourselves) I sometimes have a drink when I haven't finished a book. Yes, that's how rock and roll I really am.”

And this is just one of the reasons why we love Queen Rowling.
It’s probably pretty cool to be J. K. Rowling overall, but the best part has got to be the replica Hogwarts in your (her) back garden. Now, the Harry Potter author is expanding with a new addition – a model of Hagrid’s stone hut, apparently. Why, you ask? BECAUSE SHE CAN. And that should be reason enough for a full-size (ok, I'm not sure it'll be full-size) replica of Hangrid's hut, no?
J.K. Rowling is finding some very creative things with those HP millions.
Queen Rowling is currently in the planning stages of the process, has just been granted permission to build the hut on the grounds of the Scottish estate. The replica will stand on the edge of a forest on her 162-acre Killiechassie Estate, according to Radio Times.
J.K. Rowling's series of cryptic clues and an anagram challenge caused her fans to storm social media with suggestions Harry Potter may be returning. But it seems Newt Scamander is now the hero of the hour.
When J.K. Rowling tweeted a series of cryptic clues on Monday (6th October), many Harry Potter fans were already throwing on their Gryffindor scarves and drawing a lightning bolt scar on their foreheads in anticipation of a new book.

Is it possible that JK Rowling is penning a new Harry Potter novel?
JK Rowling has sent the Harry Potter world into a spin after posting a series of cryptic messages on Twitter, alluding to new projects and a mystery novel. Rowling is a regular Twitter user but has been strangely silent in recent weeks – and now we know why.
Rowling told fans that she has been busy working on a new novel and “tweaking a screenplay”. The movie is likely to be Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, though the prospect of a new book is fascinating – could it be that, given Rowling’s penchant for surprise projects, she is writing a new Harry Potter book?
