The actress formerly known as Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, is still pulling strings in the wizarding world of Harry Potter — not only has she scored tickets to London’s which are notoriously impossible to get, but she’s also shutting down the haters via a series of seriously adorable pictures with the cast AND — would — posted an A+++ review!
Writing on her wall, the 26-year-old awesome activist put all Potterhead fears to rest for in one short paragraph she completely overwrote (of which there were quite a lot). After all, if Granger OG thinks it’s “AMAZING,” then who are we to argue?
“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 Clemmett Noma Dumezweni @HPPlayLDN”
Yet bad reviews were not the only hateful words being thrown towards The Cursed Child. You may remember when — namely, Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger — and many “I’m not racist but…” comments came flying from too many directions, making us want to throw back something similar to what Hermione gave to Malfoy that one time:
Throughout the Harry Potter franchise we all loved and applauded Hermione for her kind, strong, assertive nature, a girl who was always willing to stand up for something she believed in, which are characteristics that Watson and Dumezweni both have by the bucket load. Thus, especially as Hermione’s description within the book mentions nothing of race, both women are perfect to play separate interpretations of the iconic character.
And, also, LOOK how CUTE:
Tbh, the only negative feels these pictures bam in our direction is the deep, deep sadness of not getting our little muggle mits on tickets to see Noma in action!
On a scale of 1 — Can’t Handle, how many feels do the pics of Hermione & Hermione give you?
