When asked about Parker’s transformation, the same BBC site reports author JK Rowling saying: “He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right.”

The news was announced on the official Harry Potter & The Cursed Child website, with a link to the Pottermore website featuring pictures of Harry, Ginny and Albus Severus Potter and words straight from the author’s mouth.
