Harry Potter fans are in a frenzy, days away from the monumental reunion of the Harry Potter cast in Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, and you can only imagine how hyped they must be.
The main trio, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) will be back for this promotion, as well as many other supporting cast members such as Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black.)
In a recent sneak peek for this long-awaited reunion, Watson talks about what it was like to fall in love with her co-star Tom Felton during the early days of filming the film series. Of course, as most dedicated fans will tell you, the British actress has talked about this moment before. However, for fans, watching an innocent
Here’s how she described it:
“I walked into the room where we were having tutoring. The assignment that had been given was to draw what you thought God looked like, and Tom had drawn a girl with a backward cap on a skateboard. And I just don’t know how to say it — I just fell in love with him,” She admits. “I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet, it was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day. He was three years above me and so for him, he was like, ‘You’re like my little sister.’”
Of course, while the press has gone crazy in recent years with rumors about the two stars dating, nothing actually came of it, although Felton confesses that he was aware of the crush and took precautions for his co-star.
“I think I was in the hair and make-up chair and someone said something along the lines of, ‘Yeah, she had a crush on you,’” He says. “I became very protective over her. Yeah, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day. There’s always been something that’s like, I don’t know, a kinship.”
The Harry Potter special reunion episode premieres on January 1 on HBO Max. What do you think about Emma Watson’s love for Tom Felton?
ABOUT EMMA WATSON
Emma Watson is an English actress who rose to prominence after landing the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. She has since starred in other films such as The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring. Watson is also a humanitarian and was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador in 2014.
Hermione Granger was an intelligent and talented witch who played a significant role in the events of the Harry Potter series. Hermione is best known for her intelligence and her knowledge of spells, which she often uses to help others with difficult tasks. She may also be considered brave because she risked her life on many occasions to save other people, such as when she used herself as one of the hostages in order to try and lure Lord Voldemort away from Hedwig’s cage at Malfoy Manor (though this failed), or when she helped protect Hogwarts by fighting off Death Eaters during the Battle of Hogwarts. As a member of Dumbledore’s Army, Hermione became more confident in herself and learned that it was good to use logic along with instinct while dealing with troubling situations.
