Malfoy and Hermione!? Is this really happening? Actor Tom Felton responded to those long-running romance rumors surrounding him and his Harry Potter co-star, the gorgeous Emma Watson, in the most cryptic way!
“We are something, if that makes any sense,” the 33 year-old told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on June 3. While he didn’t elaborate on what “something” meant, Tom added, “We’ve been very close for a long time. I adore her.”
Tom did think the romance rumors stem from the rivalry between his bad boy character, Draco Malfoy, and Emma’s good wizard character, Hermione Granger, who hail from different Hogwarts Houses; naturally, people love a good enemies-to-lovers romance.
But he wasn’t done gushing about the 31 year-old actress “I think she’s fantastic. Hopefully she returns the compliment,” the British actor said. To this day, Tom and Emma remain good friends (which is partially why those romance rumors persist).
