Appearing on forthcoming Sky Max reunion show Harry Potter 20th Anniversary – Return To Hogwarts, the actor shared a note he sent Bonham Carter after completing work on the ten-year franchise in 2011. 

Reading his message aloud for the first time, he said: ‘Dear HBC, it was a pleasure being your co-star and coaster in the fact I always ended up holding your coffee. 

‘I do love you and I wish I’d just been born ten years earlier so I might’ve been in with a chance.’

Radcliffe wasn’t alone in developing an on-set crush, with Emma Watson, 31, recalling the exact moment that she ‘fell in love’ with her former co-star Tom Felton, 34, during a tutoring session between filming.

The actress – who played Hermione Granger in the wizarding movie franchise – reminisced about her crush on Felton, villainous Draco Malfoy, and vividly recalled him making her heart skip a beat for the first time.

The pair also shared a warm embrace as they hugged with delight while reuniting on camera in The Great Hall for the TV special.

Tom was 14 years old when the first Harry Potter movie came out in 2001, while Emma was just 11. They both starred in all eight Harry Potter films.

She recalled: ‘I walked into the room where we were having tutoring. 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.

‘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.

‘He was three years above me and so for him he was like: “you’re like my little sister”.’

Despite being at the centre of dating rumours for years, to Emma’s disappointment nothing ever happened between her and Tom, although the actor admitted that he was fully aware of his secret admirer.

Tom said: ‘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.”

‘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.’

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is set to debut on January 1, 2022 on HBO Max.  

It is also available to watch on streaming service NOW on New Year’s Day, with an Entertainment Membership.
