Cher Horowitz has officially met Cher Horowitz 2.0.
Alicia Silverstone, who played the iconic character in 1995’s Clueless, stopping in NYC to watch the Off Broadway Clueless The Musical on Wednesday (Dec. 20). She headed backstage to meet Dove Cameron, who has taken over the role of Cher for the show.
The 22-year-old actress took to Instagram to commemorate the moment. “i can’t even begin to describe the bizarre deja-vu/inception-like feeling of loving Clueless your whole life, loving cher your whole life, then getting the incredibly singular opportunity to be the second person in the world to play her, and THEN looking out into the audience on a tuesday night and seeing @aliciasilverstone smiling in the audience back at you as you say the lines that she made so iconic,” she wrote alongside a photo of the two hugging.
“i’ve never been more nervous or more deeply honored,” she continued. “so, naturally i had a full on nervous breakdown when i finally got to meet her afterwards. super embarrassing, but glad it was caught on camera in retrospect. never will i believe the luck and the contents of my life.”
