“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” lead actor James Snyder has been fired from the Broadway production over misconduct allegations, the Associated Press reported.
Producers said Sunday that they terminated Snyder following an investigation of an initial complaint from a co-star in November, the AP reported.
Snyder had been suspended from his role as Harry Potter when the complaint was received in the Fall, according to the AP.
The complaint came from Diane Davis, who plays Harry Potter’s wife, Ginny Weasley, in the show, the BBC reported. She has been on leave from the show since she filed the complaint. The nature of the misconduct hasn’t been disclosed.
The show takes place 19 years after the famed book series ends, following the main characters’ lives post-Hogwarts.
“We are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive workplace, which is why we have robust workplace policies and procedures in place for all those involved in ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,'” the statement by producers said, according to the AP.
“This includes strict prohibitions against harassment in any form, as well as channels through which any employee can report conduct that they believe is inappropriate. We will continue to do all we can to ensure the extremely talented team that brings this production to life feels safe, empowered, and fully supported,” the producers said.
Producers for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
