Maybe today wasn't the day you expected your brain to get boggled by the presence of two Hermione Grangers in one place, but you know what? It is that day. Emma Watson went to go see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this week and took several pictures backstage with the cast, including her character's older counterpart, played by Noma Dumezweni. Her Facebook post about the experience might even make you cry a little bit:
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
Yep, now we're crying and trying to bootleg tickets. Check out all the pictures here!
