Harry Potter fans have long believed that Emma Watson and Tom Felton have been dating. After all, Watson had admitted that she had a crush on Felton when they were younger and the two have kept in close contact with each other through the years. So are they a couple? Felton has finally broken his silence and addressed the speculations.
Felton recently spoke to ET Online where he spoke about his relationship with Watson. Not surprisingly, the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix actor chose to praise his co-star
"We are something if that makes any sense. We've been very close for a long time. I adore her," Felton said of Watson. "I think she's fantastic. Hopefully, she returns the compliment."
All kidding aside, Felton clarified that there is no romance between him and
"As far as the romantic side of it, I think that's a Slytherin/Gryffindor thing rather than a Tom and Emma thing," he said. Felton then continued by showering more praise on Watson.
"I absolutely think the world of her. I think to be a part of what we've all been a part of, but for her to be the only girl, certainly the youngest one on set, to grow up with what she had to grow up with was incredibly exciting. You're going to get me teary now, but no, I think she's a fantastic influence on the world," he said.
It's great to see that the friendship between the Harry Potter stars continues to stay strong after all these years. Could it possibly lead to a reunion in a new project in the future? We'll be waiting for some updates soon.
