Michelle Gayle is Hermione Granger

Michelle Gayle is Hermione Granger

Barbara Speake Alumni Michelle Gayle has gained success in her earlier years with her role on Grange Hill, her resident role as Hatty on Eastenders and most recently her role as Hermione Granger for the play 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'.  Michelle has not only remained beautifully youthful, she has inspired many young women to be hardworking, persevere through difficult time but most importantly remain humble.  We are pleased to see that even after these years she still manages to keep us on our toes.  Congratulations Michelle.
