Tom Felton and Emma Watson became best friends during “Harry Potter” but there were always sparks of love
Tom Felton and Emma Watson from Harry Potter have always been the best of friends, and a constant fuel for fans’ dreams of matchmaking and romance! Whose details we present to you.
Rumours have been circulating for years that they were carrying a secret romance under all our noses. All this despite the fact that they sometimes date other people. So how did these rumours start in the first place?
Well, the pair seem to have spent more time together than any other cast member since the end of the film franchise in 2011. Even in groups, they are always paired.
Add that to the fact that we already knew that Emma Watson was in love with the actor, as she revealed in a 2012 interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying, “Between the ages of 10 and 12 I really fell in love with Tom Felton.”
“We all love a bad boy, and he was a few years older and had a skateboard and he really did. I used to do tricks with her. It was so cool, I totally knew it. And the thing is, she would turn around and say, ‘Oh, I see her as a little sister. He broke my heart”.
And, of course, fans have developed theories that the two are more than friends, regardless of their protests. And his co-star, Rupert Grint isn’t helping to disprove those crazy theories!
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2019, the actor who played Ron Weasley said of his Hogwarts classmates: “There was always something. There was a bit of a spark. ”
Was there a romance between Tom Felton and Emma Watson?
Okay, so what does Tom Felton himself have to say about all this? In a new interview with ET, he finally spoke of the rumours of the romance with Emma Watson: “We are something, if that makes any sense.”
“We’ve been very close for a long time. I adore her. I think she’s fantastic. Hopefully she returns the compliment. On the romantic side, I think it’s Slytherin / Gryffindor more than Tom and Emma.”
However, he ended by saying one of the kindest things about Emma: “I absolutely believe her world. I think being a part of what we’ve all been a part of, but for her to be the only girl, definitely the youngest on set, to grow up with what she had to grow up with was incredibly exciting.”
“Now you are going to make me cry, but no, I think she is a fantastic influence in the world,” concluded the 33-year-old actor on the rumours of the romance of Tom Felton and Emma Watson.
