By Sally Wardle

The Belfast-born star of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child has scooped another top theatre award.

Anthony Boyle, who plays Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, was named best supporting actor at the 17th annual WhatsOnStage Awards, which are voted for by theatre-goers.

It comes after the 22-year-old Poleglass man was named most promising newcomer at the Critics' Circle Theatre Awards last month.

The production, nominated for 11 gongs, swept up at the prestigious WhatsOnStage awards, winning eight categories, including best new play. Jamie Parker, who plays Harry in this sequel to JK Rowling's books, beat veteran stars including Sir Ian McKellen, Belfast star Sir Kenneth Branagh and Ralph Fiennes to be named best actor in a play.
