Talk about a double-dose of Hermione! “Harry Potter” fans are busy gushing of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” and they’re not alone. Emma Watson stopped by to check out the play on Wednesday (July 6) and meet the cast.
Obviously her biggest stop of the night was visiting, Noma Dumezweni, who plays the grown-up Hermione in the play, and the two snagged some adorable photos together.
Watson also took some time to write a stunning review of the show, but be warned — it will give you more “Harry Potter” feels than you can handle.
“Yesterday I went to see the Cursed Child. I came in with no idea what to expect and it was AMAZING. Some things about the play were, I think, 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 on Facebook.
If that doesn’t make you teary about the good, old Hermione days, then check out what she had to say about her new, fellow Hermione Granger.
“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)! The cast and crew welcomed me like I was family and Noma was everything I could ever hope she would be. She’s wonderful,” Watson says.
If you’re having some last minute remorse about not buying tickets to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” live in London, never fear. You might not get to see Dumezweni in action, but the novelized version of the play is set to be released later this month.
