AceShowbiz - Tom Felton has put an end to rumors he is dating Emma Watson. Having been linked romantically to his former "Harry Potter" co-star for quite a while, the actor best known for his portrayal of Draco Malfoy in the fantasy film franchise squashed the buzz by joining Raya, a dating app favored by celebrities.
The news about the signing up of the 32-year-old actor was brought to attention by The Sun. "Tom's a great-looking guy with a good personality," a source explained to the outlet. "But he's struggled to find someone to connect with."
"Being an actor can be a hard life with travelling and being away for extended periods of time, so he's looking for someone who gets that lifestyle," the source added. "He also needs someone who understands what it's like to be in the spotlight."
In terms of the buzz surrounding his love life, Tom sent tongue wagging about a possible romance with Emma in mid-2019. At the time, he shared with fans a photo of their reunion in South Africa for a guitar lesson. Explaining the Instagram post, he simply wrote in the accompanying caption, "Quick learner."
Months later, Emma set the record straight on her relationship status. "I never believed the whole 'I'm happy single' spiel," she opened up in an interview with Britain's Vogue magazine. "I was like, 'This is totally spiel.' It took me a long time, but I'm very happy (being single). I call it being self-partnered."
In the same month, Tom shared his thought on the possibility of them dating. "She's an incredibly smart and lovely young lady, so it's always nice to bump into each other and slightly reminisce about old times, but also about looking forward to the future," he told MailOnline. "I think in this day and age it's not a necessity to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone."
