"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" creator and star Rachel Bloom worked as an actor for a long time before she got famous and won a Golden Globe.
Along the way, she got used to seeing casting calls like this:
Hermione of the past, meet Hermione of the future.
Noma Dumezweni's casting as Hermione Granger in "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" caused a whole lot of controversy when it was first announced.
The stage show, set 19 years after "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" caused a stir with Dumezweni's casting for one very frustrating reason: her race.
See, Dumezweni is black, and Emma Watson, who played the character in the film series, is white. For some fans, this departure from their expectation of what Hermione looks left them feeling a bit of dissonance.
