Talk about the “Erecto” charm! Harry Potter alums Tom Felton and Rupert Grint say that Harry Potter and Ron Weasley both felt certain stirrings for Draco Malfoy.
The confirmation came while Felton and Grint — who respectively portrayed Draco and Ron in the blockbuster film series — played a game of “Fact or Fan Fiction” in an In the Know video.
The first assertion? “Even while he was with Ginny, Harry was always in love with Draco.”
Harry Potter costars Evanna Lynch, Warwick Davis, and James and Oliver Phelps decided that claim was just the stuff of slash fanfic dreams, but Felton and Grint begged to differ.
“I think it was clearly a fact,” Felton said. “Harry was constantly crushing on Draco. He just couldn’t hide it.”
Grint, meanwhile, contended that Draco “made quite an impression on Ron, as well.”
“Yes, well, exactly,” Felton replied. “It could have gone either way, really.”
A search for “Drarry” on FanFiction.net yields nearly 4,700 results, more than a third of which are rated M for “mature.”
One steamy Drarry story reads: “Draco began kissing down Harry’s jaw, making his way to the pale flesh of Harry’s neck. Draco nibbled gently at Harry’s ear and then at his neck. He tenderly bit into Harry’s tender neck. Potter let out a low, pleasure-filled moan and accidentally tugged a bit roughly on his lover’s hair.”
Apparently, Dumbledore wasn’t the only dude-lovin’ wizard at Hogwarts!
