In the films, Emma played Hermione Granger and Tom essayed the role of one of the antagonists Draco Malfoy.
“I walked into the room where we were having tutoring. 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, 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’,” said Emma as quoted by ET Canada during the reunion.
Speaking about the same, Tom Felton said, “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'. I became very protective over her. Yeah, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day,” he added. “There’s always been something that’s like, I don’t know, a kinship.”
