Hermione met Hermione. There was no witchcraft involved, but you could say it was magical.

Emma Watson and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child actress Noma Dumezweni met backstage after a Wednesday performance of the play, currently in previews, which Watson called “AMAZING,” expressing her delight in all caps, adding, “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.”
