In his autobiography, Tom Felton says that during filming, Emma Watson went to her dressing room to do a little dance show. Accompanied by Josh Herdman (Goyle), Tom Felton goes to the dressing room and begins to make fun of the young girl with his comrade.

'We laughed at Emma's show, peaking when she danced. We were just little shitheads, mostly because we were uncomfortable and thought it was cool to fuck with him, but Emma was clearly pissed off at our indelicate reaction. I felt dumb, and rightly so” , wrote Tom Felton in his book.

The two actors reconciled

Fortunately, Emma Watson quickly forgave this gesture to Tom Felton. Since then, the two actors have reconciled and are very close to each other. In his book, the interpreter of Draco Malfoy notably wanted to pay tribute to the young girl.

“Emma was the one who had the most delicate situation to manage and this, from a very young age , he wrote. The pressures she was experiencing went beyond having to deal with stupid boys. She was treated like an adult in many ways from the day she was cast. The last thing she needed, in an environment that should have been – and normally was – friendly, safe and family-friendly, was Josh and I making fun of her dancing. This is why I am ashamed of our behavior. »

If nothing ever happened between them, the two actors have always had a close relationship.

'You know that person in your life who makes you feel like you're seen? This person who is somehow the witness of everything that happens? This person who knows - really knows - what is happening to you and what you are going through without anything needing to be said? For me, that person is Tom Felton” , she wrote.
