Johannesburg, July 10 (ANI): Emma Watson aka Hermione Granger of hit 'Harry Potter' series has showered praise on Jack Thorne's stage play 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.' Watson, 26, took to her Facebook page and posted her pictures meeting the members of the play and shared, "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," reports Channel.24. She added, "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)!" she said. The 'Regression' star also revealed that she received a warm welcome by actress Noma Dumezweni, who enacted the role of Hermione in the play. "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," she wrote. Thorne's stage play is a story, set nineteen years after J.K. Rowling's books and spin-off movies, and follows Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter.(ANI)
