The actor, 33, posted the sweet snap on Instagram to mark Watson’s 31st birthday.

The image shows the pair as children together and appears to have been taken in 2002, as they are posing in front of a poster for 2002 film Scooby-Doo: The Movie.

Felton and Watson’s characters Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy were often at odds in the movies based on JK Rowling’s books.

But the stars are good friends in real life.

So far the picture has racked up more than 2,520,900 likes on the platform, and fans have been gushing about how “cute” it is.

“I can’t breathe!” posted one person, while another gushed: “This is everything.”
