Best dad ever! Ben Affleck took Violet, his eldest child with estranged wife Jennifer Garner, to see the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play in London’s West End theater district over the weekend.

The Oscar winner, 44, and Violet, 10, weren’t the only Hollywood celebs in the audience; his Suicide Squad costar Margot Robbie and Glee alum Darren Criss also attended the performance. The official Facebook account for the play posted a photo of the guests with the cast and crew on Monday, August 22.

Back in April, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Affleck and Garner, 44, are renting a house in the U.K. while the Argo star films Justice League. (The amicable exes, also parents of Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4, announced in June 2015 that they were splitting after 10 years of marriage.)

Affleck has been a dedicated muggle for years. In August 2015, he and the family celebrated his 43rd birthday at Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida. In January, he even was spotted wearing a Harry Potter T-shirt while taking a break filming Live by Night in L.A. His character of choice? The shirt featured Harry’s beloved godfather, Sirius Black.
