If this is what it's like to use a Time Turner, it's a beautiful thing to see. Rupert Grint, who originated the role of the goofy Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, watched Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre on Wednesday night. There, he met actor Paul Thornley who plays the adult Ron in the new play by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.

Last week, the original Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) also attended the play and met adult Ginny, Poppy Miller. Helena Bonham Carter, who played Bellatrix Lestrange in the films, was at the same show.

Ever the trailblazer, Hermione Granger actress Emma Watson was the first (unless someone else went secretly?) of the original cast to watch the play before it officially opened in theatres – of course, she also met her adult counterpart Noma Dumezweni.

Out of the famous trio, only Daniel Radcliffe has yet to watch The Cursed Child and meet Jamie Parker, who plays the near-40-year-old Harry. Daniel explained to Stephen Colbert in June that while he's keen on attending a show, he won't be doing it anytime soon.

"I just feel sitting in an audience of what will for the most of the near future be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might be like not a relaxing way to see a show," he said. "So, not for the time being."

Hopefully Daniel doesn't wait too long – we'd love to see him and Jamie in one photo.
