The Potter worlds have collided.
Emma Watson met up with Noma Dumezweni, the actress playing Hermione in the stage play ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ at the Palace Theatre in London on Wednesday. Both actresses took to social media to express their excitement.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Watson said that she went to see the show and then met the actors afterwards. The actress raved about the production and its cast, which she described as amazing.
“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,” she wrote.
Watson also posted a photo with Dumezweni to Twitter and wrote, “It was SO lovely to meet you @MissDumezweni. #Hermiones”
