Amid speculation about their relationship, Felton told Entertainment Tonight in June 2021, "We are something, if that makes any sense as far as we've been very close for a long time. And I adore her, I think she's fantastic. Hopefully, she returns the compliment. But as far as the romantic side of it, I think that's a Slytherin-Gryffindor thing rather than a Tom and Emma thing."
