A new Instagram picture of former Harry Potter stars Emma Watson and Tom Felton has once again egged on fans to speculate whether the two are dating. The cute click was shared by Felton, showing the two actors playing a guitar.
“Quick learner,” he captioned the picture alongside the letter ‘x’. The image’s location was South Africa. But this is not the first time their romance rumours have sparked like wildfire.
“Brad & Gaga, make room!” one person wrote in the comments section, possibly referring to actors Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, whose chemistry in the recent film A Star is Born also fuelled speculation that the two were an item.
One fan even came up with a perfect celebrity name for them. “DRAMIONE,” they wrote, making a reference to the characters that they played in the Harry Potter series. While Watson played bookworm Hermione Granger, Felton depicted the villainous Draco Malfoy. Another fan came up with a different option, and commented, “I wanna cry. Really wanna cry. Feltson is real.”
“In my mind you two are together, always,” wrote another fan. “Good thing you prefer mudbloods now,” added another, making a reference to the slur Malfoy uses against Hermione in the Potter series. One person also wrote that they’d been waiting 15 years for this.
Previously, the two actors had fuelled dating rumours after Emma posted a picture of herself, which was credited to Felton. Vice versa, the actor recently shared a snap of himself wearing a shirt that read ‘Women Do It Better.’ Watson is known for her women’s rights activism.
In a 2012 appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, Watson confessed to harbouring a crush on Felton during their Harry Potter days. “Between the ages of 10 and 12, I had a really terrible crush on Tom Felton. We love a bad guy, and he was a few years older and he had a skateboard and that just did it really,” she had said.
