The cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child got a welcome boost when the original Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, turned up backstage at the Palace Theatre in London.
Hermione came face to face with Hermione as Watson met Noma Dumezweni, who plays the adult version of the former Hogwarts pupil in the play.
Dumezweni described the moment as “emotional” and paid tribute to Watson as “a beautiful, humble and very kind young lady”, while Watson said “it was SO lovely to meet you”.
Watson was also pictured with young actors Anthony Boyle, who plays Scorpius Malfoy, and Sam Clemmett, who stars as her former character’s son Albus Severus Dumbledore.
