The relationship that currently exists between Emma Watson Y Tom felton, the actors who respectively gave life to Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, has given much to talk about since she herself admitted that, while they were shooting the movies, she had been crazy about him.
This teenage crush has come to the fore again in the special that the cast shot for HBO Max on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the premiere of the first film in the saga. Emma confessed that she used to check the ‘call sheet’ – a document that collects information about who will shoot what each day – daily to see if Tom also had to work and still remembers even the number by which he was identified: seven. She also knows perfectly well when she fell at the feet of her co-star: when during private lessons they were asked to draw how they imagined God and he chose to make a portrait of “a girl with a cap put back on a scooter”. “And I don’t know how to say it: I fell in love with him,” Emma explained.. “He was three years older than me, so he told me that I was like his little sister”, He added to make it clear that no matter how much it hurt, nothing ever happened between them..
Many of the fans of the film saga have always seen a possible romance between the actors as a way to fulfill the dream of seeing their characters together in fiction, especially because Emma and Tom keep posting photos together on Instagram when they get a chance to get together. But nevertheless, JK Rowling, the author of the magical universe, always refused to establish a romance between Hermione and Draco because she insisted that it did not fit the psychology of either of them.
Tom, for his part, admitted that he was aware of Emma’s feelings. because someone ‘gave her away’ one day while they were in makeup and hair, but instead of making fun of her or taking her love lightly, she decided to become her biggest fan. “I became very protective of her. Yes, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and it still is. There’s always been something that’s like… I don’t know, a kind of affinity, ”he added.
