*Monica "Cooler than Harry" Potter was meeting-and-greeting fans long after the stage had been deserted - chatting, being present, relatable, generous, and all-around as wonderful as we could imagine. She's completely hysterical, as proven by these gems where she's seen modeling poses for fan photos:
