Grint caught a performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Wednesday (Aug. 11) and took a moment to pop backstage at the Palace Theatre in London. There, Grint came face-to-face with actor Paul Thornley, who plays the older version of Ron Weasley in the eighth Harry Potter story set 19 years later.
“Rupert Grint met Paul Thornley after the #CursedChild performance this evening at the Palace Theatre, London #KeepTheSecrets,” wrote the play’s official Instagram before sharing a photo of the pair on Instagram.
Emma Watson also stopped by in July and gave fans all the feels when she met up with current Hermione actress, Noma Dumezweni. We know Daniel Radcliffe has said he doesn’t have plans to catch Cursed Child any time soon, but given that both Watson and Grint have made it out to see the play, we’re definitely hoping he changes his mind. We’d love to see Radcliffe meet his adult Cursed Child counterpart just like Watson and Grint have met theirs!
