Still hoping to prove blondes have more fun, Tom Felton is giving Harry Potter fans a blast from the past with a homage to Draco Malfoy. Known for his role as the slippery Slytherin from 2001’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to 2011’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Felton hopped on his broomstick as Harry’s archnemesis.
Since leaving the Potterverse behind, Felton has gone on to star in The CW’s Flash and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. While the 32-year-old hasn’t quite hit the CV peaks of Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson, he still has a lot to thank J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world for.
Felton slipped on a pair of robes and took the ultimate throwback photo alongside a picture of Draco. While you can still see the similarities between Felton and his younger self, the actor told fans “ageing’s a b*tch”. Dressed in his Slytherin finery, Felton shared the snap on Instagram as he posed with young Draco.
Even if Felton isn’t happy with his wrinkles, there was plenty of support. Among his champions was McFly’s Tom Fletcher, who wrote, “You’ll always be beautiful to me TF”.
Others say he still has his boyish good looks. Comments included, “You’re still so cute I would die for u”, “Draco is always my favorite🥺💚”, and “You’re literally aging like a fine wine 😻”.
Another simply wrote: “I love how you’re never gonna stop posting about your Slytherin pride👏😂💚”.
Earlier this year, Felton went on holiday with Emma Watson and sparked rumours of a possible Potter romance. Giving us the ultimate #PotterGoals, Felton shared a picture of himself and Watson having a musical interlude in their pyjamas. We’re not sure how this came to be, but to be honest, we’re here for it.
This was followed by Felton catching some rays on a beach and wearing a t-shirt with the slogan “women do it better”. According to the caption, Watson took the photo.
The comments section soon exploded with Potter-mad fans who’ve completely lost their mind. Worryingly, there seems to be a lot of people who actually think they’re Hermione and Draco.
One person wrote, “Omg please you are making us crazy. Gonna have to write fanfics again 💕😍dramione forever 💗”, while another gushed, “My childhood is screaming rn. It’s amazing that you’re hanging out!!!!”
Someone else warned. “Daniel will hear about this.” Finally, someone could hardly contain their emotion as they wrote: “SOBBING IM SOBBING”.
People seem obsessed with the idea that the pair could be dating, but hold your fan fiction right there. It could simply be that the two are still friends from their Potter days. Also, don’t get your hopes up that they’ve reunited for a Deathly Hallows sequel. That being said, Dramione shippers have come out in full force.
