Why should Harry Potter get all the love? It’s about time for Ron Weasley — Harry’s Hogwarts BFF and sidekick — to get a little lovin’ too!
Jessie Cave plays over-dramatic witch-in-training, Lavender Brown, who is Ron's girlfriend in the next big-screen installment of the Harry Potter saga: "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." But it appears Jessie’s affection for the quirky red-headed wizard existed even when the cameras stopped rolling.
In the magazine, Jessie says she thinks Rupert is a bit scared of her but hints that she wouldn’t mind an offscreen love connection.
“I thought there might be a link there,” Jessie said. “Who knows, maybe in the future!”
Not only did Jessie talk about crushing on her co-star, but she also spilled the beans on her Harry Potter audition.
"For the final audition I was kitted out in Hogwarts uniform and driven in a golf-buggy to the Gryffindor common room,” the actress recalled. “I had to improvise in front of a room full of people with Rupert and a paper biscuit for half an hour."
Hmmm ... I wonder if Jessie’s crush on her wide-eyed co-star developed during her audition. I mean nothing speaks romance like a room full of people and a paper biscuit!
I’m more of a Cedric Diggory fan myself. Of course, this has nothing to do with the fact Robert Pattinson played him (er, that's a lie!), but since Cedric is out of the picture, maybe I should join Jessie and start crushing on Rupert, too!
Jessie is currently single, but I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see if it lasts. Life can imitate art, right?
What do you think of this possible "Harry Potter" couple? Are you Team Lavender or Team Hermione? Let us know!
