Harry Porter’s Evanna Lynch was disappointed she missed Tom Felton and Emma Watson’s crush on set. Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood in the fantasy series, joined the franchise in the fifth installment, The Order of the Phoenix. Luna’s zany nature provided comic relief early in the story, though she ultimately became a defender of the Wizarding World and a source of unconventional wisdom for Harry. She featured in some capacity in each of the following films, including in a pivotal storyline featuring her father Xenophilius in The Deathly Hallows.
With the early Harry Potter films featuring a young,teenaged cast, it might not surprise viewers that romance bloomed on set. Though the two played sworn enemies in the films, rumors have swirled for years about whether Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) were dating. Watson admitted in 2011 that she used to have a crush on her co-star, saying “for the first two movies, I had a crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush”. The two posted a picture together on holiday in South Africa in 2019, causing further discussion about whether they were romantically involved. The rumor was ignited once more recently, with Felton commenting that he and Watson are “something, if that makes any sense.”
