Christmas came early on Saturday 14 November, as the Harry Potter cast came together virtually to celebrate the premiere of Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone 19-years ago. Feel old yet?

Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, aka "The Boy Who Lived") and How to Get Away With Murder star, Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas), were just some of the big names present - much to the delight of Potterheads.

The event was streamed live on Veeps ('Peeves' anagram, anyone?) under the celebratory #19YearsLater, and was hosted by Tom Felton. Hogwarts' favourite bully, the sharp-tongued, TikTok trending Draco Malfoy. And you can be sure his father heard about this, as Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) also attended.

But that's not it. James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) showed-face, too. Sadly, there was no sign of Emma Watson (Hermione Granger).

The group revisited their magical time together on the set of one of the most successful film franchises ever-ever. So wholesome, guys! They giggled about the professional poise that Grint, in particular, brought to each take: "I remember on Potter it would always be the most inappropriate scenes, like Dumbledore's funeral [that] I found absolutely hilarious," the actor said.

Grint admitted that his prankster personality and tendency to laugh meant he and Radcliffe had to film their very-first meeting separately. "Once you start laughing, it's very hard to stop... They used to call me 'Go Again Grint' because I could never do anything without doing it like 20 times," he recalled.

Fond chuckles turned into cooing, as Grint showed them photos of his newborn daughter with Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging actor, Georgia Groome. Just as quickly, the clucking switched to speculation, with Radcliffe hinting at a gargantuan celebration on the cards for 2021. "My first thoughts are that this is but a mere preview of the nostalgia we'll be immersed in next year when it hits 20 years since the first film was released," Radcliffe teased.

Bring on the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine in time for more Potty parties, please?
