Hermione Granger Had A Crush On Draco Malfoy During Filming

One of the incredible things about the Harry Potter movie franchise is that the majority of the cast was a bunch of kids. Sure, by the end of the series they were all respectable adults, but when they first signed on they were a group of young boys and girls.

Because they were going through their adolescent years, they all had to do school work in between filming. Shooting a film is hard enough, but imagine having to study for exams and pull off assignments while you're battling the Dark Lord and his ghastly friends.

Well, it seems as though all that extra work wasn't too bad for on actor as it meant she got to spend more time with her cast members.

Speaking to Seventeen magazine, Emma Watson, who played the brightest witch of her age, Hermione Granger, revealed that she had eyes for the opposition: "For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton (who played Slytherin protégé Draco Malfoy). He was my first crush.

"He totally knows. We talked about it - we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that's cool."

When Felton was asked about this crush six years later and whether anything happened on set, he replied: "Er, uh, um, no."

But that revelation would have been a tough pill to swallow for Neville Longbottom aka Matthew Lewis, who also told Seventeen: "I probably had a crush on Emma for a couple of years, until I was 13 or 14 - something like that."

He added: "We started tutoring on set and we were on set all the time, so I think everyone had crushes on everyone else at some point.

"There was always Valentine's Day - everyone would write secret Valentine's cards to different people. I think on the second [film] there was like love notes and love letters flying around."

But thankfully, Lewis did get his feelings off his chest, saying: "She knows about [my crush]. It's not something we've not talked about or anything."

He ended up getting engaged to Angela Jones who works at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, Orlando while Watson is dating Glee star Chord Overstreet. At least they can all have a laugh about their teenage crushes and it isn't a dementor in the room or anything like that.

Ten points can go to every house!
