Fans of the Harry Potter films will be disappointed to learn that Tom and Emma are not dating, but they have remained great friends since first meeting in the franchise 20 years ago. Emma revealed during the Harry Potter reunion special that they’ve always been quite close and that she ‘fell in love with him while working on the films together.

Although she is presently in a relationship with an American entrepreneur, Tom Felton, 34, and Emma Watson, 31, have been linked in the past. When Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger were asked directly about any evidence of affection between them and their Harry Potter co-stars, they were keen to clarify their connection.

The beautiful actress remembered: “Tom had been assigned the task of drawing what he felt God looked like, and he had sketched a female on a skateboard wearing a backward cap. And I don’t know how else to put it: I’m in love with him.” “I guess I was in the hair and make-up chair, and someone mentioned something along the lines of, ‘Yeah, she had a love on you,” Tom said sweetly.

The English actor added,” For her, I had a strong protective instinct. Yes, I’ve always had and continue to have a soft spot in my heart for her.” Tom and Emma have always maintained that they never dated, something the Draco Malfoy star addressed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “If it makes any sense, we are something,” Tom softly said after initially being taken aback by the inquiry. We’ve well-known each other for a long time. I like her.

But, when it came to romance, Tom believed that it originated in the Wizarding realm and not in real life. “When it comes to the romantic perspective, I think it’s more of a Slytherin/Gryffindor issue than a Tom and Emma one, I believe that’s more of a Slytherin/Gryffindor thing than a Tom and Emma thing,” he continued. Tom stated he still talks to Rupert Grint (Ron) and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry, obviously), as well as Emma, regularly, as if the films were “only yesterday.”

Furthermore, Emma was rumored to be engaged to boyfriend Leo Robinton when she was photographed in February 2021 with a diamond ring on her wedding finger. After his long-term romance with Jade Olivia Gordon ended in 2016, Tom seems to be single.
