The actress went backstage to meet the cast of the stage play, including Noma Dumezweni, who's playing the older version of Hermione Granger.

The new Harry Potter stage play has received the seal of approval from one of the movie's stars.

Emma Watson went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child earlier this week, praising the show on her Facebook page.

"I came in with no idea what to expect and it was AMAZING," she wrote. "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."

Clearly someone with the right connections (well, she did study at Hogwarts for — almost — seven years), Watson even got to say hello to the cast backstage, including Noma Dumezweni, who plays Hermione Granger in a story set 19 years after the final film installation.

"Meeting Noma and seeing her onstage 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)!" Watson added, posting photos from her visit.

"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…"

The two-parter Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is currently previewing at London's Palace Theater and is due to open officially on July 30.
