There are some childhood actors that’ll stay in our hearts forever, especially if we’ve watched them grow up on screen. This includes the talented cast of the *Harry Potter* series. Today, we are featuring Tom Felton, who is best known for his role as Harry Potter’s rival Draco Malfoy, son of Lucious and Narcissa Black Malfoy. You remember him. Slick blonde hair, sharp tongue, and that little snarl. He was a major snob, but deep down, he turned out to be a coward, which funnily enough, made him even more adorable. It’s no surprise that he won Best Villain in both 2010 and 2011 at the MTV Movie Awards. Fortunately, just like his *Harry Potter* cast mates, Felton didn’t fall into any bad crowds or pressures. He started his acting career at a young age by acting in commercials and is continuing with success today. He’s also quite busy outside of acting. Just a few years ago, he released an album called ‘In Good Hands.’ To learn more about what he’s up to today, continue reading. *Warning: If you haven’t finished the Harry Potter books or films, please beware. This post contains some spoilers.*Before Tom was cast in the Harry Potter series, he played the curly haired Peagreen Clock in The Borrowers. Fans have called him an undercover Weasley, which we’re slapping our knees at the thought of.
Look at that face. You’ll never stop watching this GIF.
“It’s definitely more fun playing a bad guy. It feels a lot better than playing one of the good guys.” -Tom Felton
“I would miss months of school and then return with bright blond hair. Needless to say, there was bullying,” he said in an interview. “I wasn’t beaten up daily, but there was name-calling and jealousy. You have to bear in mind that ‘Harry Potter’ wasn’t cool. I wasn’t part of the ‘Terminator’ franchise.” Harry Potter wasn’t cool? Tom, tell us who these muggles are.
Even though he rocked white platinum well, he’s a natural brunette.
In 2011, he told Seventeen magazine the following: “I like the laid-back ladies. Looks are stressed so much these days, and a lot of girls feel they need to do all of these weird and wonderful things to look good, and they really don’t. The best-looking girls don’t do anything; they just sort of know they’re beautiful, especially in jeans and a hoodie.” More on his love life later.
Everything happens for a reason, and we’re pleased with the casting results. Felton agrees that no one else could have played each of their roles any better. The cast was pure magic.
The tournament allows youth between the ages of 11 and 18 to compete. He worked with his brother Chris, Joe Babbitt, and some other organizations to make it happen.
Make sure to check out his original music on YouTube. You won’t regret it.
When he’s not singing his heart out or acting, he likes to drive fast cars.
A few years ago, Felton’s best friend Timber passed away of cancer. He wrote this on Twitter when it happened: “Raise a wand, a glass and a smile to celebrate Timber’s life with us tonight. Post your favourite pictures of her with #timberlives so we can all look back at her wonderful life. Thank you xx @timberlives.”
A few months ago, he posted this photo of a fan at MegaCon with the caption “Legend found.” Tell us more, Tom.
Many of us were divided. Some of us shipped Draco x Hermione, Draco x Harry, or Draco x Pansy. Others didn’t want to ship him at all, because we wanted him all to ourselves.
Astoria Greengrass was played by Jade Olivia, his girlfriend since 2008. She was working as an assistant on set.
They’ve since moved together to Los Angeles. The two remain private but not completely invisible. You can follow them on social media.
The Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Hollywood opened just last year, and Felton felt oddly at home.
Side smirk to full smile. Probably the most adorable thing ever.
We don’t know who he’s talking to you, but you can pretend it’s you.
Tom Felton was recently cast as Julian Dorn in season 3 of The Flash, which premieres Tuesday, October 4 at 8 PM.
