“It was an extra exciting day.”

Turns out that love was in the air while the Harry Potter movies were being made.

According to ET Canada, during the upcoming reunion special Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, Emma Watson revealed that she had a major crush on Tom Felton when they started shooting the iconic films.

“I walked into the room where we were having tutoring,” she explained. “The assignment that had been given was to draw what you thought God looked like, and Tom had drawn a girl with a backward cap on a skateboard.”

“And I just don’t know how to say it — I just fell in love with him.”

“I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet,” she continued. “It was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day.”

“He was three years above me and so for him he was like, ‘You’re like my little sister.’”

And Felton was aware of her crush on him too. “I think I was in the hair and make-up chair and someone said something along the lines of, ‘Yeah, she had a crush on you,’” he recalled.

Of course, the two never dated — but Felton says that him and Watson have a special bond regardless. “I became very protective over her,” he explained. “Yeah, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day. There’s always been something that’s like, I don’t know, a kinship.”
