Noma Dumezweni is an English actress who is currently in the market to play one of the hottest characters in the world. When it was announced that there would be a new Harry Potter, it was also announced that she would take on the role of the very intelligent Hermione Granger. She will star as Hermione in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” and her casting has led to a number of different thoughts. Some fans love the idea of having her portray Hermione, and others are less thrilled with casting. Of course, you simply cannot please everyone, so it’s not that much of a surprise to the world that there are those who aren’t thrilled with her as a final choice. Either way, she’s a famous actress with some serious skill, and we look forward to seeing her in one of our favorite roles.
Emma Watson Loves Her
The actress who originally played Hermione Granger has no problem that Noma Dumezweni is not the same color. She feels that having an African-American actress born in England is an awesome casting choice, and she praises the actress for her incredible skill. She is a huge fan with an enormous amount of respect.
She Knows Something We Don’t Know
The recent passing of so many Hollywood legends taught Noma Dumezweni that you cannot be anyone other than yourself. She chose to learn from each and every one of the recently deceased legends that you have to shine and enjoy life and be yourself if you want true happiness.
J.K. Rowling Think She’s the Best
The author of the Harry Potter books stated simply that she doesn’t care what the world thinks about Noma; she’s the best actress for the job she was hired to do. She’s brilliant and the author loves her. She’s angry, too, that her fans haven’t been able to get their heads out of their rear ends to see that for themselves, and she’s not cutting them any slack for their horrible behavior.
She Understands Theater
She’s not allowing the critics to bother her. She says that she understands theater, and it has nothing to do with appearance. It has everything to do with talent. It’s Noma’s opinion that at the end of a play, fans are allowed to ask “Are they good?” and that’s what theater is all about. She knows she’s good, she’s got awards to prove it. She feels that ignorance is a shame, but all she can do is play the role and rock it every single night.
She’s Not Racist
Noma Dumezweni is not a racist actress. She says she’s met amazing actors that are both black and white and every color in between. She said she’s also met the worst actors of her life who are black, white and everything in between. She knows that skin tone doesn’t matter, but it’s skill that does. Being a certain color doesn’t make you good at your job; being good at your job makes you good at your job.
