As if we didn’t have ENOUGH intense emotions about Harry Potter, we now have to deal with the fact that Emma Watson met Noma Dumezweni, aka adult Hermione from The Cursed Child, and cried! In general, we’re very sympathetic to extreme emotions when it comes to Harry Potter, but Emma’s reason for getting so emotional after seeing The Cursed Child makes a lot of sense when you consider she grew up alongside Hermione. And suddenly, there’s a play that reveals Hermione’s future. Of course Emma would lose it when she learns how she/Hermione turned out. We’re emotional just thinking about it, to be honest.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Emma Watson said:

She continued to explain why she thought her emotional reaction was so strong, and it was the same reason a lot of fans reacted strongly to the play, although we imagine Emma’s experience must’ve been a bit more intense than most.

We knew that Emma saw the show over the summer, but she never opened up about it ’till now.

It wasn’t just Emma Watson who felt emotional about the meeting, though.

So, when’s the next meeting of the Hermiones and HOW do we snag an invite?
