Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has admitted that he ‘saw sparks’ between co-stars Emma Watson and Tom Felton while filming on set.
The actor’s revelation comes as a complete shock since it was Rupert’s character Ron Weasley who ends up with Emma’s Hermione Granger in the popular movies.
We also know that Hermione and Tom’s character Draco Malfoy never got along, but the actors are good friends in real life, which might be why Rupert is hinting at their special bond.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Rupert admitted that he could see Emma and Tom as more than friends, saying: “There was always something. There was a little bit of a spark.”
However, Rupert went on to insist that he didn’t want his comments to become the beginning of relationship rumours, explaining that the ‘sparks’ between Emma and Tom happened when they were kids.
“But we were kids. It was like any kind of playground romance,” Rupert continued. “I didn’t have any sparks. I was spark-free.”
The Ron Weasley star’s comments come after Tom and Emma had a heart-warming reunion back in August this year.
At the time, Tom took to Instagram to share a photo where he could be seen giving Emma guitar lessons.
“Quick learner,” Tom wrote on his post, which we think is the perfect caption to go along with such an adorable snap.
Some relationships start from good friendships. We’ll just leave that here.
