The final chapter of "Harry Potter" is coming out in less than two weeks and our three beloved wizards have gone their separate ways--one to Broadway, one to an ice cream truck--while the last is splashed across magazine covers.

The question on everybody's mind seems to be: Who is Emma Watson, really? And the answer is more gratifying now than ever.

On Vogue's July cover, with a slick back pixie cut and a shiny shift dress, she's high fashion and trying to reconcile the bookish heroine Hermione Granger and her real identity. With inexplicable comparisons to the grungy life of Patti Smith, we come away with a portrait of Emma that's more elusive than it is revealing.

Luckily, Seventeen has just what we're looking for; in blindingly-bright ensembles she talks about fashion, dorm living and her first on-set crush. To wizard-wannabes there's nothing more thrilling than the prospect of romance lingering in the vaulted halls of Hogwarts. We're all pretty psyched for Ron and Hermione's love to finally, finally blossom in the last chapter of "Harry Potter", and the article reveals, to muggles delight, there was heartache behind the camera, too. The actress admits that she, in real life, had the hots for a wand-wielding co-star.

No, not for 'The Chosen One' or the good-natured ginger but for Harry Potter's childhood nemesis, Draco Malfoy.

“For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton,” Emma tells the magazine. “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.”

Wonder if fellow co-star Daniel Radcliffe guided her through those texts.
