I love her even more for that tweet of support. It really doesn't matter what colour Hermione is because it's irrelevant to her character. And on stage, appearances don't really matter, it's all in the acting. AND even if someone is hung up on her being white, it's called suspension of disbelief for a reason. You believe the acting, not not the looks.

It's pretty telling though that people who didn't make a peep that movie Hermione had neither buck teeth, nor unruly hair, are now suddenly such purists.
