Not to panic anyone, but we're just one day away from the much-awaited Harry Potter Reunion special, which will see all the stars of the hit series come together a decade after the final Harry Potter movie was released. Pretty exciting stuff, right!?

Ahead of its release, the Daily Mail has revealed some reunion tidbits – including Emma Watson's revelation that she fell in love with Tom Felton on set.

Yep, in an interesting turn of events, Watson (who played Hermione Granger) had quite the crush on Felton (who played Draco Malfoy). Speaking about the moment she caught feels Watson said: "I walked into the room where we were having tutoring [and] the assignment that had been given was to draw what you thought God looked like, and Tom had drawn a girl with a backward cap on a skateboard."

She continued, "And I just don't know how to say it – I just fell in love with him. I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet, it was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day."

Unfortunately for Watson however, her feelings weren't exactly reciprocated. "He was three years above me and so for him he was like, 'You're like my little sister'," she admitted. That's not to say he didn't know about her crush though, in fact, Felton says it's one of the reasons he bonded with her.

"I think I was in the hair and make-up chair and someone said something along the lines of, 'Yeah, she had a crush on you'," Felton said during the reunion interview. "I became very protective over her. Yeah, I've always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day. There's always been something that's like, I don't know, a kinship."

Maybe they're together in an alternate universe?
