J.K. Rowling sightings are scarce these days, but as a renowned philanthropist, it’s no surprise that we’ve seen Rowling almost exclusively at charity events this year — and yesterday’s Lumos / HBO red carpet was another on the list!

The premiere for movie documentary, Finding The Way Home, narrated by Fantastic Beasts star Eddie Redmayne. The HBO documentary is based on the harmful institutionalisation of children globally, and is inspired by the work of Lumos to end this practice.

Eddie Redmayne and J.K. Rowling both walked the red carpet, which certainly got the attention of fans!

The documentary premieres in the U.S. on HBO on December 18th at 9pm:
