Go argue with Voldemort, eat a Golden Snitch or spit in Snape's coffee Harry Potter, because Swaziland-born actress Noma Dumezweni's is the new chosen one, and she's shattering barriers. Dumezweni's been chosen to play Hermione Granger in the up and coming stage play, "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child."

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is listed as the eighth installment, and covers events that transpire shortly after we all got goosebumps watching Harry and Ginny's kids board the Hogwarts Express with the original theme playing on in the background. All the nostalgia feels though.

Much like rising star Michael B. Jordan who played Johnny Storm in the recent, catastrophic, anything but Fantastic Four rendition, Dumezweni's reprised role as Hermione will continue to challenge film audiences that expect white as the default ethnicity.

What's more is, JK Rowling just expressed her strong nod of approval.

Check out Jamie Parker, Noma Dumezweni, and Paul Thornley as Harry, Hermione, and Ron above. It's great to have the band back together for another adventure. Any guesses on who might play our favorite barrel-chested, black bearded, mountain of a man Hagrid?

Well, I suppose it's only fitting that JK Rowling would be giving her children Hogwarts-esque tree house playgrounds. Check out Lovely Listing for more cool home designs and sweet spaces!

Quidditch being the only sport I follow, I don't know a lot about Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Mike Evans, but I do know he's my favorite NFL player because of his epic Harry Potter groom's cake. Dude is apparently a huge fan, and he isn't afraid to show it.

A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.

His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.

In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.

What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'

As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.
