If you ever thought Harry Potter was a little too obsessed with Draco Malfoy while reading the magical book series or watching the film adaptations, you're not alone. Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco in all eight Harry Potter movies, thinks Harry was probably secretly in love with Draco the whole time.
During an appearance at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World to celebrate the opening of a new Harry-Potter-themed rollercoaster, Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure, Tom played a game called "Fact or Fan Fiction" with his co-star Rupert Grint. Rupert, of course, played Draco's other nemesis, Ron Weasley, in the films.
Rupert asked Tom, "Fact or fanfic? Even while he was with Ginny, Harry was always in love with Draco." With a big laugh, Tom confirmed he believes the popular fan-fiction pairing was actually a fact. "I think it was a clearly a fact. Harry was constantly crushing on Draco. He just couldn't hide it."
Rupert chimed in, too, saying, "I think [Draco] made quite an impression on Ron, as well." According to Tom, this theory also adds up. "Yes. Exactly. It could have gone either way, really," he told Rupert.
