Harry Potter And Draco Malfoy Met Up Again In Real Life

Here's the truth, Harry Potter is rubbish.

Sure, it was great when you were a kid, but as you grow up and realise the misery of life you should probably stop believing in a world of magic, make believe and lashings of pumpkin juice.

It just doesn't work like that.

Before you find me and send me hate mail, I've already had it from the hordes of Beyoncé stans out there, after that I'm not worried about any Quidditch-playing, wand-waving bunch.

Anyway, what I'm getting at - while alienating a large portion of the people reading this in the process - is that one bright note in the films (and there weren't many) was the acting of Tom Felton.

In the early films, his acting as Draco Malfoy was like the Nicolas Cage of kid acting. He was camp, evil, and thoroughly dislikeable. Game Of Thrones' Joffrey, but with greasier hair.

As it went on, the whole cast of children learned to act a bit. I mean, give anyone eight films and see if they don't at least pick something up.

Also, they had a bit of help from the stellar cast of adults that included people like Alan Rickman, Dame Maggie Smith, Gary Oldman, Richard Harris and Michael Gambon.

Since the films finished, a few of the kids have actually gone on to do some decent stuff.

None more so than Daniel Radcliffe, the titular hero of the whole shebang.

Luckily for all the HP fans who are still reading and haven't left their devices to start mailing horse shit to our office, some of the cast are still great friends.

It looks like, against all odds, Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter are among those who still have a good relationship.

Tom Felton shared a photo on Instagram of himself backstage at a play with none other than The Boy Who Lived, who is now very much The Man Who Lives.

Radcliffe is currently starring on Broadway in The Lifespan of a Fact, which by all accounts is actually quite good.

As for Felton, he's currently in his own series called Origins, which you'll be able to stream via YouTube Red in November.

But, for now, it's nice to see that even after enduring their way through some long and tedious filming as children the pair don't absolutely hate the sight of each other.


I mean, not outwardly anyway.

With their careers going well, perhaps there is even hope for some of the worse actors in the whole thing.
