A few months ago, Harry Potter fans began speculating that Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy were a thing IRL. Even though Dramione never got together in the books, the actors who played them may have had a brief romance over the summer. Tom Felton and Emma Watson sparked dating rumors on social media when Tom shared a cozy looking photo with Emma. The photo in question shows Tom teaching Emma how to play guitar, with the 32-year-old actor captioning the shot "quick learner." Both Tom and Emma are in their pajamas, as well, and the location is tagged as South Africa.
The rumors died down after Emma was spotted kissing a mystery man in London back in October. She also told British Vogue in recent interview that she's single as a pringle right now. "It took me a long time, but I'm very. I call it being self-partnered," the 29-year-old actress explained, pretty much shutting down those relationship rumors about her and Tom.
It seems like Emma and Tom's Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint didn't get the memo, however, because he just spilled so much tea about his pals. While chatting with Entertainment Tonight, Rupert opened about Emma and Tom's rumored romance. When asked if he had heard they were dating, Rupert didn't appear surprised at all. He told the interviewer "there was always something" between Tom and Emma on the Harry Potter set.
"There was a little bit of a spark," Rupert continued. "But we were kids. It was like any kind of playground romance." He then added that he "didn't have any sparks. I was spark free."
Though Rupert said he didn't want to start any rumors about his friends, Emma has actually spoken about having a crush on Tom while filming the first few Harry Potter films, as well. "For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush," she told Seventeen. "He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that's cool."
Tom recently told Us Weekly that the pair actually see quite a bit of each other, as well, even though they don't always post about in on social media. "Lovely Emma. We do see each other quite a lot actually. We just don’t always post pictures about it," he revealed "Everyone loves the reunion of it. We’re reuniting all the time we just don’t always post it on Instagram. She was in my neighborhood and I hadn’t seen her for a few months. And I decided to take her for a skateboarding lesson, which she was very good at. She’s quite hard on herself. But she’s actually very good at it. So yeah, that was fun. I always enjoy spending time with her."
