When Emma Watson came across a little boy dressed up as Harry Potter in New York a few years ago, the actress played along, and the resulting photo went viral.

Now, with Halloween fast approaching, the adorable photo is making the rounds yet again.

Watson then hugged the small fan and replied, "That's great, because I'm Hermione Granger and we're best of friends!"
