The Felton Family
The actor has been rumored to be dating Emma Watson, an English actress, and activist, in August 2019. It possibly might be because the Harry Potter fandom loves the off-screen chemistry between the two of them too much. However, Felton confirmed that these rumors were bogus and the two of them were just friends. Tom Felton had also been rumored with Melissa Tamshick, an actress, model, singer, writer and band member. They supposedly dated for approximately three years, from April 2004 to March 2007.
