This might just be the best thing we've seen all day.

Last night, Emma Watson was lucky enough to see the new play, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child and couldn't praise the show and, more importantly, the actress taking over the role of Hermoine, enough.

On Facebook, Watson shared backstage pictures of her meeting the cast and crew and revealed parts of the show were 'possibly even more beautiful than the films' – a pretty major compliment coming from an actress who has been the only one to play Hermoine in eight of the franchise's blockbuster films.

The 25-year-old went on to explain that seeing the play made her feel 'more connected to Hermione and the stories than I have since Deathly Hallows came out, which was such a gift.'

But how did she feel about Noma Dumezweni – the actress who plays the older Hermoine?

'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 wrote.

Just take a look at this Hermoine love-fest.

'The cast and crew welcomed me like I was family and Noma was everything I could ever hope she would be," Watson wrote on Facebook. "She's wonderful. The music is beautiful… I could go on…,' she added.

Watson's moving statement comes months after the racial abuse Dumezweni received at being cast to play the character.

We have goosebumps.
