‘Harry Potter’: Does Lavender Have A Real-Life Crush On Ron?

Featured Article

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 July issue ofTatler magazine, the up-and-coming actress talks about her real-life crush on onscreen boyfriend Rupert Grint!

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?
