Emma Watson meets the new Hermione at Harry Potter play
Emma Watson visited the London production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this week, and posted pictures of her meeting the cast much to our pure delight.
The play follows on from the original Harry Potter stories only nineteen years later when Harry is working for the Ministry of Magic and his son, Albus Severus, is a student at Hogwarts.
Emma, who originated the role of Hermione in the eight Warner Bros films, was full of praises for the play. She wrote on her Facebook page:
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. 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. The music is beautiful… I could go on… Here are some pics of me meeting Noma and the crew. Love, E xx #keepthesecrets#19yearslater @antoboyle Sam ClemmettNoma Dumezweni @HPPlayLDN
Fans have delighted in seeing pictures of the young actress meeting Noma Dumezweni – the older version of Hermione – and from the pictures, it appears they got on as well as two versions of the same person possibly could.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is playing at the Palace Theatre and tickets are available to buy here.
