It's everyone's favorite brainiac! Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, admitted that she was a little anxious ahead of the get-together.

"I honestly didn’t know how I was going to feel this morning. And then something happened where it was just like the comfort of the people that I’ve known for such a long time and the history that we share and that sense of safety," she said. "And then, once I started feeling really safe, enjoying everything that we made and that we created and feeling like we could kind of celebrate and just enjoy being together."

All aboard! Watson sat on the Hogwarts Express with Evanna Lynch (who plays Luna Lovegood) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley).

"Some of us haven’t seen each other for years. So, it’s just been a joy. An unexpected joy," the Beauty and the Beast lead continued. "I really didn’t know how I would feel. I felt quite overwhelmed this morning. I’ve just been really pleasantly surprised by actually just getting to relive it all."

It's the boy who lived! Daniel Radcliffe, a.k.a. the one and only Harry Potter, chatted with Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the villainous Bellatrix Lestrange.

"It has been lovely to see everyone. It really has. I didn’t know if it would be," confessed the Miracle Workers actors. "I have a very mixed relationship with nostalgia. It’s just so much feeling that it can be weirdly painful sometimes, because there’s so much of life to take in that happened in those ten years. But seeing everyone again and going, 'Oh yeah, we’re all doing great.'"

Snow much fun! Fake flurries rained down over the cast as they took in their surroundings.

Felton got emotional when he stepped onto the set, sharing, "The first time I walked through the Great Hall, and it still gives me the same sort of tingles as it did then."
