Emma Watson reunites with Harry Potter co-star and onetime crush Tom Felton as he teaches her how to play the guitar in South Africa

They were catapulted to fame almost 20 years ago when, as young children, they were cast as Hermione Granger and villain Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.

And Emma Watson, 29, showed her friendship with her co-star — and onetime crush — Tim Felton, 31, has endured over the years, with a new snap of them enjoying an impromptu guitar lesson in South Africa.

In the shot, shared on Tom's Instagram account on Monday afternoon, the actor is seen guiding Emma on playing the string instrument as they sit together on a couch in a light-filled living room.

Wearing a pink-and-white striped ensemble, Emma appears to be focused on mastering the skill as Tom, clad in a red tank top and plaid bottoms, helps her with finger placement on the guitar chords.

In a sign that the casual lessons were moving in the right direction, screen star Tom captioned the image: 'Quick learner x.' [sic]

Their reunion comes months after they hung out together in California, relaxing on the golden shores of Los Angeles' hip Venice Beach back in November.

As well as sharing a snapshot of the pair posing together as they basked in the glorious Southern California sunshine, Emma also uploaded a brief video of the pair skateboarding along the boardwalk together. 

In the clip, the stars were shown whizzing along the shoreline on Tom's board as he playfully told Emma: 'Easy with the wobbling! Keep your feet still!'

'They are!' Emma responded, as she stood on the skateboard closely behind him.

'You're not,' Surrey-born Tom jokingly shot back. 'You're dancing around on the board like a clown! Hang on tight!'

'I'm hanging on,' the Beauty And The Beast star quietly replied, as the endearing video came to an end.

In the snapshot accompanying the video, the pair wore casual white T-shirts as Emma donned a flipped grey cap while Tom angled the camera for the perfect selfie.

Throwing her support behind Tom's new YouTube Premium show Origin, which also stars Harry Potter's Natalie Tena, she wrote: 'Tom’s @origin_series is out on 14th November. Congrats dear friend. #TFToleratingmysubparskatingskillssince1999.'

While the pair have remained friends over the almost-20 years since they first started shooting inaugural Harry Potter film, Emma caused quite the stir back in 2011 when she revealed that she once had a crush on Tom.

Speaking to Seventeen at the time, the Paris-born beauty disclosed: 'For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush.

'He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that's cool.'

Emma was recently in a relationship with businessman and tech CEO Brendan Wallace, who earlier this year was spotted out and about with Alexandra Daddario.

Meanwhile, Tom was spotted enjoying a passionate clinch with a blonde beauty last August during a night out on Venice Beach.

Tom, who is known for keeping his romantic life largely private, previously dated Harry Potter co-star Jade Olivia for seven years.

The 32-year-old beauty took her on-screen romance with the star off-screen as she played the wife of Tom's character Draco in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in 2011.

While the pair enjoying an array of romantic getaways and appearing on glitzy red carpet, Tom and Jade called it quits in early 2016.

Tom rose to fame after appearing as Harry Potter's in-school nemesis in all eight films, based on the globally popular books by J.K. Rowling about The Boy Who Lived.

Carving out a successful career in acting after from the franchise, the Brit has since gone on to star in Rise of The Planet of The Apes and A United Kingdom.
