Emma Watson recently revealed that “Harry Potter” bad boy, Tom Felton, who played Draco, was her very first crush.
“Very flattering,” Tom told Access Hollywood at the junket for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” in New York City on Sunday of his reaction to the news.
The British actor said it was others who actually told him about Emma’s crush.
“We’re going back a few years here… I heard it through the grapevine. And the eventually we became good friends,” he said.
“We can laugh about it now, but as testament to how long we’ve been doing this for, I’m pretty sure she was about 9, possibly 10… but yeah, [it was] very flattering,” he added.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” hits theaters on July 15, and Tom said leaving his character behind has been tough.
“It’s weird saying goodbye to him. I haven’t stepped into Draco’s shoes now for over a year-and-a-half and I definitely miss him,” he said.
“He’s very different from me, but he’s a lot of fun to play. So it’s sad to say goodbye to him,” he added.
