The Harry Potter
movies were, in my opinion, the most brilliantly cast book-to-film adaptations in history. Honestly, save for just a few flawed choices (cough cough, Fleur Delacour, Dumbledore 2.0, cough cough), every single choice fit into my personal vision of the written characters perfectly; and none were quite as perfect as Emma Watson’s Hermione Granger.
Watson was reunited with
the creator of her infamous character, JK Rowling, at Rowling’s charity, Lumos
, on November 9.

Rowling auctioned off her drawings of the illustrious sorting hat, which, in the books, helped to determine which house each first-year student would be placed in. The event took place at the Warner Bros. Studio in Watford, Hertfordshire, which also happens to be where the movies were shot.
Since filming on the eighth and final film was completed, the studio has been transformed into a museum, giving fans the opportunity to see sets and props up close and personal.
Watson tweeted a picture of herself in front of a wax statue likeness of her, from her role in The Goblet of Fire
, in which she was petrified and placed under a lake for Victor Krum to rescue as part of his Tri-Wizard challenge.

Watson was not the only Harry Potter
alum that came out to show their support of Rowling. Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), and Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick and Griphook), were also in attendance.
