"As a queer person, as a gender non-conforming person, to be a visible voice gives the gift of anyone can be a part of this world and that's our responsibility, you know? To be this open and visible force for inclusion and representation in presenting this new version of this story," said Brady Dalton Richards, who plays Scorpius.

The segment also featured interview with David Abeles (Ron Weasley), Steve Haggard (Harry Potter), Jenny Jules (Hermione Granger), and James Romney (Albus Potter).
