Emma Watson recalls how she fell in love with her Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton back when they were kids, during a preview for the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts.

Emma Watson recalls falling in love with Tom Felton

In the sneak peek for the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts reunion special, Emma Watson (who plays Hermione Granger) reflected on the moment where she developed a crush on Tom Felton (who plays the antagonist Draco Malfoy) on set.

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.

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”

Tom Felton also addressed Emma Watson’s crush on him, saying that he was made aware of it and although he didn’t reciprocate her feelings, he became very protective of her like an older brother.

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.

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.

And although nothing romantic has ever materialized between the two, they did become very good friends over the years and they did embrace each other during their reunion for the Harry Potter special.
