Magical moment! See what happens when the two Hermiones meet

Emma Watson shared numerous photos of herself with Noma Dumezweni, who plays the adult version of her Harry Potter character.

Put this photo on the front page of the Daily Prophet: Turns out Hermione Granger really can be in two places at once. Well, the same place, twice. Maybe a Time-Turner was involved.

On Thursday, Emma Watson, who played scrappy young Hermione in the Harry Potter films, met up with Noma Dumezweni, who plays the role of adult Hermione in the new, two-part London play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child." Watson shared numerous photos of the meeting on Facebook and tweeted out one of the actresses sharing a hug.

"It was SO lovely to meet you @MissDumezweni," Watson tweeted, with a #Hermiones hashtag.

Watson went into more detail on Facebook, writing: "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."

Dumezweni responded in kind, with three tweets praising Watson and noting that, "It really was quite emotional to be in your company... And Thank you 4 your lovely self. We spoke of you with MAJOR respect."

Awww, Hermione squared is twice as great as Hermione solo, and we already thought she was pretty magical.
