Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is still in previews, and while some of the actors from the Harry Potter film franchise want to wait before seeing it, one of its stars finally met her theatrical counterpart.
After seeing the play Thursday night, Emma Watson went backstage and met Noma Dumezweni, who portrays an adult Hermione Granger-Weasley in Cursed Child, bringing two generations of the fan-favorite character together.
Yes, Hermione and Hermione are together at last—and it was awesome.
In a series of tweets, Dumezweni praised Watson and said that it “really was quite emotional to be in your company.”
Watson elaborated on the experience in a spoiler-free Facebook post. She met other members of the cast along with Dumezweni and had nothing but good things to say about the play. Some aspects, she noted were “possibly even more beautiful than the films.”
“Having seen it I felt more connected to Hermione and the stories than I have since Deathly Hallows came out, which was such a gift,” Watson wrote. “Meeting Noma and seeing her on stage was like meeting my older self and have her tell me everything was going to be alright, which as you can imagine was immensely comforting (and emotional)!”
