Emma Watson has revealed she can remember the moment she fell in love with her former co-star Tom Felton ( Draco Malfoy) while filming the “Harry Potter” movies.
In a sneak peek at the “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” special, Emma the exact moment she fell in love with him:
“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,” Watson admitted.
“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,” she added. “He was three years above me and so for him he was like, ‘You’re like my little sister’.”
Despite being at the centre of dating rumours for years, nothing ever happened between them. Felton, however, admitted he was fully aware of his secret admirer.
“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,’” the actor recalled.
“I became very protective over her. Yeah, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day,” he added. “There’s always been something that’s like, I don’t know, a kinship.”
