Harry Potter alum Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, is adding fuel to the shipper fire. During a game of "Fact or Fanfic?" with Ron Weasley actor Rupert Grint, Felton insisted that Harry's love for Malfoy was a "fact."
On AOL's In the Know segment, Felton and Grint went back-and-forth with different scenarios, many of which involved romances between characters. Reading off of a piece of paper, Grint asked, "Fact or fanfic? Even while he was with Ginny, Harry was always in love with Draco."
"Ah!" Felton responded immediately. While fellow stars Oliver Phelps, Evanna Lynch and Warwick Davis dismissed that idea, Felton embraced it, saying, "I think it was clearly a fact. Harry was constantly crushing on Draco. He just couldn't hide it."
"I think he made quite an impression on Ron as well," Grint added with a grin.
"Yes," Felton agreed. "Well, exactly. It could have gone either way, really."
Both Felton and Grint appeared in all eight Harry Potter films, starting in 2001's The Sorcerer's Stone and ending in 2011 with The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Across the seven books and eight films, the popular "Drarry" relationship never came to be -- even though Felton would like to tell you otherwise.
