It’s been a hard task keeping up with all the recent successes of 2016 graduate, Anthony Boyle.

Cast in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as Scorpius Malfoy while training in his final year at RWCMD, Anthony has been hailed as the ‘boy who stole the show’ by the Evening Standard.  He’s gone on to win a Critics Circle Award, What’s On Stage Award, and a nomination for an Evening Standard Theatre Award for this role.

To top it off, he’s just been nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has broken Olivier award record history, receiving a further 10 nominations for one production.

We caught up with Anthony the day before the announcement to take some portraits of Harry Potter’s latest star.
