Harry Potter fans have long hoped for their romance.
And Tom Felton, 33, once again shared sweet words about Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson when he said “we are something” after admitting that he “adores” the actress.
The two made no secret of the fact that they had a crush on each other while filming the first Harry Potter films.
“We are something”: Tom Felton, 33, has once again shared exuberant words about his Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson (31) by admitting that he “adores” the actress (pictured 2018).
When asked about his relationship with Emma at the opening of the Harry Potter store in New York on Thursday, he told Entertainment Online, “We are something when that makes sense. We have been very close for a long time. I adore her.
“I think it’s fantastic. Hopefully she’ll return the compliment. ‘
But when he pushed for the nature of their relationship, he explained that it wasn’t romantic and more of a ‘Slytherin / Gryffindor thing’.
When he talked about Emma, he would cry and explain that he thought she was “a fantastic influence in the world” and that when they talk, they talk about everyday things.

He also touched his other co-stars, including Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, assuring fans that he still speaks to them and often catches up with them.
It comes as Tom shared a heartbreaking childhood recap of the movie franchise that made him a star in March.
In the picture he and his Harry Potter co-stars Emma and Alfred Enoch were seated at a table over their scripts.
The photo appeared to have been taken during the making of one of the first two films, considering all the children looked extremely young.

Tom was only 14 when the first Harry Potter film came out, while Alfred was only 12 and Emma was the youngest at 11.
Late last year, amid the coronavirus pandemic, Tom put together a virtual cast reunion for the Harry Potter films, including Jason Isaacs who played his father.
Then, in December, he filmed himself watching the first Harry Potter movie, got visibly emotional, and told himself to keep it together.
Earlier this year he posted an Instagram clip watching the film and excitedly discovering his grandfather’s cameos.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and its sequels, based on the global Smash book series by JK Rowling, catapulted its child stars to world fame.

Alfred played her boyfriend Dean Thomas while Tom played the cruel school tyrant Draco Malfoy, who eventually joins the villainous Death Eaters.
Tom and Emma have appeared in all eight Harry Potter films, while Dean has been in all but the seventh – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.
Tom has been close friends with Emma since the end of the series – in 2019 he posted a snapshot of him teaching her to play the guitar in South Africa.
Emma has confessed in various interviews that in the early days of their friendship, she had a crush on him while filming.

“I had a crush on Tom Felton in the first two films. He was my first crush. He absolutely knows, “she said seventeen years later in 2011.
“We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We’re really good friends now, and that’s cool, ”said Emma, who is now with businessman Leo Robinton.
During an appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show, she stated, “Between the ages of 10 and 12, I had a really terrible crush on Tom Felton.”
She explained, “We love a bad guy and he was a few years older and had a skateboard and it really did.”
Emma said Tom ‘totally knew’ about the crush but said, ‘Oh, I see her in a younger, sisterly way’ and it just broke my heart. ‘
