Actor Jamie Parker, the first to play the role of Harry Potter on the Cursed Child play, is the sixth celebrity to take part in the project in which stars read chapters from The Philosopher’s Stone during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Jamie Parker is the main narrator, while other actors from the Broadway play cast read the dialogues from the sixth chapter of the book, The Journey from Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, when Harry gets help from Molly Weasley to board the train, where he meets Ron and Hermione.
The videos are part of the project Harry Potter at Home, which gathers themed activities to entertain fans during the COVID-19 quarantine.
The reading project will also count with the presence of other actors from the Wizarding World, such as Claudia Kim (Nagini), and international celebrities, like the actress Dakota Fanning (from the Twilight saga) and the ex-soccer player David Beckham.
