He wrote alongside the post: ‘So proud and, along with the audience, thrilled to see my boy commanding the stage today, breaking hearts and filling pants. 

‘Equally terrifying, he’s recording music and has a book coming out too. I feel smug if I take the bins out on the right day (doesn’t happen often). I’d hate him if I didn’t love him.’  

Tom quickly responded to the sweet message, he said: ‘Thanks dad’, and added a red heart and a snake emoji. 

Proud: Jason also took funny selfies with the signs outside the theatre as he prepared to watch the performance

They argue with their first dinner guests, old friend Lauren (Romilly) and new partner Ben (Swainsbury) and decide to stay awake until 2.22am to discover the truth.      

The actor revealed how his Harry Potter co-star Matthew Lewis told him to ’embrace the madness’ after he went to him and Daniel Radcliffe for advice ahead of his stage debut.

He told BBC’s The One Show that he sought advice from the duo due to their experience on stage.

He said: ‘I was very excited to tell Daniel, he’s done a lot of theatre and musicals and so I was keen to get a bit of an insight.

‘Him and Matthew Lewis, who I saw the other day, he was equally keen to advise me to embrace the madness and don’t panic and just enjoy the time actually being up there.

‘It’s a very different thing than we’ve done before. I don’t want to speak too soon but I’m really excited to get started.’

Daniel has stage experience in the West End revival of Equus, and the Broadway versions of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Privacy, where he played whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Matthew has also gained a number of theatre credits, including the West End production of Our Boys and the play Unfaithful in 2016.

Helen Mirren selected to host new Harry Potter game show

Think you know everything about Harry Potter? Now you’ll get to prove it with a new Harry Potter game show!

Today, WarnerMedia revealed Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses, hosted by none other than the fabulous Dame Helen Mirren. The legendary actress was not, unfortunately, among the many great stars who have appeared in the Harry Potter movies, but she did express her gratitude for finally becoming a part of the Wizarding World.

I knew someday I’d get a Harry Potter role, and I’m so pleased to take part in the 20-year film celebration. The films inspired such enchantment and wonder for so many of us, and it will be such a treat to reignite that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this spellbinding world.

Hogwarts Tournament of Houses will be a four-part special that will put several Wizarding World fans to the test with “hundreds” of trivia questions. The winner of the competition will be named the House Cup champion.

How to watch Hogwarts Tournament of Houses

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses is set to premiere later this year, roughly 20 years after the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone into theaters. The competition will premiere simultaneously on Cartoon Network and TBS, and it will later release on HBO Max. Filming will begin later this month.

Many had been wondering what Warner Bros.’ plans were for the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter film, and it looks like this might be it. It doesn’t look like WarnerMedia has any other plans up their sleeves beyond Hogwarts Tournament of Houses.

WarnerMedia is promising some guest appearances in the show. Could the big three — Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint — appear together? That’s unclear, as they all seemed to have moved on from Harry Potter at this point.

But actors like Tom Felton (Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville), and James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George) have remained active in the Harry Potter fandom, so we could expect to see them and potentially more stars during this event.
