As Harry Potter and the Cursed Child newly hits Broadway, the world is abuzz once again for the boy who lived. The five-hour future follow-up to J.K. Rowling's books has attracted all sorts of celebrities with affection for the characters we've come to love.

Speaking with Whoopi Goldberg, Ezra Miller, Fran Drescher, Glenn Close, and Sarah Hyland, SYFY WIRE dove into the fandoms that develop on the OTHER side of the red carpet. As you can see in this video, Goldberg bought the first book the year it came out in London, while Hyland (whose father plays both Albus Dumbledore and Amos Diggory in the play) hopped on board in the fifth grade at a book fair.

Audience reactions have been seemingly enchanted thus far, with the popular franchise attracting crowds from across the world to a medium that has never been as populist as books or movies. However, with a chance to reunite with Harry, Ron, and Hermione, everyone from actors to singers to readers of SYFY are clamoring for the stage.

Check out the video, and find out which celebrity your House (and HP faves) closely aligns with!
