Emma Watson Addresses Decades-Long Romance Speculation with Tom Felton
That said, the two didn’t have a magical rapport right away. In fact, Watson admitted in the book that their “relationship didn’t start well.” However, they were able to grow a friendship, which Felton reflects on later in the book.
“I’ve always had a secret love for Emma, though not perhaps in the way that people might want to hear,” he wrote. “That isn’t to say there’s never been a spark between us. There most definitely has, only at different times.”
While nothing romantic formed from that spark, they still have love for each other as friends.
“I don’t think I was ever in love with Emma,” Felton explained, “but I loved and admired her as a person in a way that I could never explain to anybody else.”
