Harry Potter star Tom Felton has jokingly ‘confirmed’ a relationship between his character and Daniel Radcliffe’s.

The actor played Draco Malfoy across all eight Potter films, while Radcliffe took on the lead role.

On April Fools Day, Felton posted a nod to fans who ‘ship’ a gay relationship between the pair, known as ‘drarry’.

May as well just say it. We’re together now x #drarry

Posting a photoshopped picture of the pair on Twitter, he wrote: “May as well just say it. We’re together now x #drarry”.

Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the films, recently recounted an experience of going out in public dressed in drag to please a group of Harry Potter fans.

Radcliffe said last year that rumours about his sexuality show that his career is still doing well.

He said of his Google search results: “Daniel Radcliffe alcoholic. Daniel Radcliffe gay. Daniel Radcliffe girlfriend.

“I’m pleased my girlfriend [now] comes up before alcoholic or gay.

“When I first did that, I got really annoyed for about half a minute, until I tried a few other people’s names and I found out [gay] comes up after almost everyone if they’re a man, and even some women – Florence Welch had it, and I was like, really?

“If people are speculating about your sexuality, then you’re doing OK.”
