Accio colorblind casting!

As you may have heard, the Internet freaked out for all the right reasons last month when it was revealed that black actress Noma Dumezweni had been cast as a grownup Hermione Granger in Harry Potter & The Cursed Child.

And while J.K. Rowling was quick to voice her support for the veteran stage actress, another person familiar with the part is excited about the casting news, as well — Emma Watson!

The Beauty and the Beast star took to Twitter over the weekend to send a special shout-out to Noma, saying:

We can’t either, Em!

Noma will be joined by Jamie Parker as Harry Potter and Paul Thornley​ as Ron Weasley when HP&TCC begins previews in the West End June 7.

Welcome to the HP family, Noma!
