Ac­tor Emma Wat­son (above) says the play — Harry Pot­ter and The Cursed Child was amaz­ing and it was emo­tional to meet

Noma Dumezweni, (inset) who por­trays Hermione Granger. The ac­tor, who por­trayed Hermione Granger in the wizard movie fran­chise, was found see­ing the Lon­don stage pro­duc­tion, which is set 19 years af­ter JK Rowl­ing’s books and spin-off movies, that made her feel con­nected to her wizard al­ter ego again.

“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, 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,” she wrote on Face­book.

On meet­ing ac­tor Noma Dumezweni, who por­trays Hermione in the the play, she says, “Meet­ing Noma 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 wel­comed me like I was fam­ily and Noma was ev­ery­thing I could ever hope she would be. She’s won­der­ful.”
